    Very nice!! Congrats!!!
     

  3. Thanks, I think the only things left to do are an over sized saftey and a xs front sight.
     
  4. Thanks. Now I just need to find time to shoot it......maybe tomorrow.
     
  5. Love it. Do check out good loading videos from the side saddle (like Magpul Dynamic Shotgun) and practice those loads. You may want to insert less of the shell into the saddle to get more grip them. Also, regular shotshells probably load more efficiently into the tube when you pull them downward out of the saddle, and feed a slug directly into the chamber by pulling them out upward, over the receiver, and into the chamber. So, shotshells face up, slugs down (the first two or three on the saddle)

    Sounds more complicated than it really is, but you have to practice this, now and then.

  6. Simple, effective. Very nice. 12 extra rounds seems excessive, but hey - can't shoot'em if you don't got 'em.

    I like the simple light on rail.

    And def turn the rounds upside down.

    Is that a 20" with the +3? A lot of firepower but that things gotta be heavy! :wow:

    Nice solid setup! :cool:

    A tip: Turn the rounds on the side saddle upside down, faster reloading. Try it, at least,
     
  9. It is by I don't really notice the weight.

    Let us know how it shoots, you may find that you have trouble getting those shells out on the side saddle. It looks as if you have pushed the shell down so that the rubber is gripping on the metal part of the shell. I think it will chew up the rubber strip, plus you really don't have anything to grab. Sidesaddles aren't the easiest thing to load from by any means but they work with practice. The main point is if you fumble one just let it go and grab another, looks like you have plenty. :)
     
  11. congrats. i love my old Wingmasters, but have no regret for ownership of an 870P. yours should serve you well.

    if it was my 870P, i'd go for 'less weight' in the extra-rounds department; personal preference.
     
  12. Well one thing is for sure, you'll take out a bunch of the zombies before they finally get you.

    Nice set up.
     
  13. Nice set up. Glad its not too heavy for you.
     
  14. That thing's awesome! Makes my 870 Police look antiquated!

  15. Congrats and enjoy this fine weapon. I purchased a 870P syn stock 18" brl and love the thing. I will be installina a two extra round extension in the very near future.
     
  16. That is... formidable! Very nice!
     
  17. Dang that's a long puppy! The BG's gonna smell the barrel cross-eyed before he gets blasted! Nice catch!
     
  18. I believe it was Clint Smith who said "nobody ever walked away from a gunfight complaining of having too big a gun or too much ammo". Or something to that effect.
