    The addition of a box mag takes away all the positives from the 870.
    It’s like grafting a pickup bed onto a Corvette to increase its payload capacity.

    Yeah, but kind of defeats the purpose of keeping it compact.

    What I want is the new Tac-14 hardwood. The black plastic and magpul forend on mine looks kind of mall-ninja-silly by comparison. Plus, they are showing it with a +1 extension - I guess that extra round in the Mossbergs was a competition issue.

    I agree. It's beyond dumb, it's ****ing stupid. If I was running Remington that idea never would have gotten past the CAD stage.

    That's the best looking 870 I've ever seen. I don't need another one but I'm buying that.

    To you guys that aren’t liking the DM, did see the Clay Martin review I posted, #19? Just curious what your take on his opinion of it? He brought up a few things I didn’t even consider, and a few things I had already realized were advantageous he also went in on. I was surprised to see how much he liked it. The opinions of all internet reviewers are worth being skeptical of, but I’ve always liked Martin’s stuff. I’m not all in on the DM like he is, but I’m more intrigued now. If it’s getting good reviews in a year, I might check out their predator version.

    Yep. I'll have to buy the hardwood version and sell my Magpul version.

    I generally don’t base much of my decision from any information provided by a gun rag writer. He brought up a few safety points, but they were nothing that was particularly specific to the weapon. They were fallacies that we’re created by individuals with safeties off and shells in the gun.

    So, I guess all I got was the normal gun rag scribbled fluf. For me, the external nag is a step backwards with the platform. Added parts, increasing the profile of the gun, little to no benefit.

    Naw, there are enough ****tards who think it's the best thing since cheese in a can, Just look at the popularity of the Taurus Judge. Even S$W copied them....

    Yes, and it was gun rag garbage that ignores the biggest flaw with the gun. You can't store the magazines loaded for very long or the plastic shells will deform. I own a Saiga 12 and six stick mags, every mag deformed the shells.

    My full size 870 is front heavy as hell, because of the Surefire forend on it, not because of the shells in it. It's also not a safety issue and adding a magazine will not change the safety aspect of using it either. Cruiser ready is cruiser ready whether it's fed from a mag or tube.

    Besides all that, he mentions being able to change loads more easily, which is only kinda true. If I need a slug in my 870 I can put one in the tube and work the action, I now have a slug ready to go without doing any kind of ninja stuff that he is talking about.

    He also mentioned switching from less lethal loads to lethal loads, and that's the dumbest idea ever. Every department I've ever seen or had anything to do with used dedicated less lethal guns, just so people didn't do dumb **** like load buckshot or slugs in less lethal guns as this guy is advocating.

    In short, that article was tripe sponsored by Remington.

    Item location "Hong Kong." I never buy or sell across international borders.

    Also, $75 for the stock and grip, if they fit (my other 870 forends don't fit my Tac-14) doesn't get me the 1-round extension or the magazine tube that apparently doesn't have the limiting bumps in it. Even if I just drill out the mag tube, For the price of putting all of that on my Tac-14 I'd have over $500 in it. I can just sell it, buy a hardwood and come out cheaper.

    Yeah, I did a similar analysis.
    The non dimpled mag tube was most interesting. I looked at Remington for the parts, it looked like the fore end was $75, and grip not available.
    Damn, looks like I'm going to end up with, at least, three Tac 14s.
