    Been some reports that model shoots high and you run out of adjustment. Mine did, I had to call Remington and have them send me a taller front sight.
  4. Thank God I can hit a 1' sq. box at 100 yards with Rem Sluggers out of my cheap Mossy 20" off bead standing.

    Best get those over rated sights dialed in on a tacticool shoty. :)

    Good Luck

    Your shotgun doesn't change POI for different types of ammo? Slugs, buckshot, and birdshot are all zero'd together? Not very likely. Put a scope or red dot on there and try it again. Hard to tell how "off" you are with a single bead. Not to mention shooting seated vs standing, twisting to one side or another, shooting weak handed, and not having your eye properly aligned with the bead like you can do on the trap range. With a red dot none of that matters, the shot hits where the red dot shows.

    Anyways, a lot of turkey/predator hunters want a shotgun threaded for choke tubes and with a rail for red dot/optics. It's cheaper to buy the "Tactical" model from the factory the way you want it than add the parts and pay a gunsmith to drill/tap the rail. Yes the breacher choke is dumb, I threw mine in the trash and installed a custom extra full choke for hunting.

    Oh, and if a single bead is a superior close range sighting system, why don't swat etc entry teams use a single bead on their MP5s, ARs, G36s, and Glocks?
  7. Nice video. I jsut bought the Remington 870 tactical with the Blackhawk special ops stock. Already have a Streamlihgt light/laser, hiviz front sight and Weaver base. Want to find a ghost ring setup..
  8. Nice video, not shotgun. I just bought a similar version without the sights.

    Congrats!! 870= Can't go wrong.
  10. Nice choice bro ! Just picked up one last week. I really like the one piece mag tube they come with now that does not require a screw on ext. Per JD at AI&P tactical, who knows more than just about anyone with regard to the 870, I replaced the cheap plastic follower, the carrier dog follower spring, put in a steel extractor, a bigger safety and bought and extra mag tube spring. Cost about 65.00 for everything and I still have less than 500.00 in it. Enjoy !

  11. Nice shotty...would not get one with the one piece tube though. Like to be able to drop the extension and add a standard mag limiter for dove and quail season. Bought a 28" ribbed Rem-Choke barrel just for hunting. Nice to be able to switch between configurations easily. Hard to go wrong with an 870 in any setup! Have fun shooting it :)

    So I guess that's a photo prop because I didn't see any shooting.
