A friend recently gave me an 870 shotgun. It lacked only a few important details, like the barrel or the intact buttstock. Fortunately, 870 is like an AR15 in terms of parts availability.
A few days later, another friend took a 28″ skeet barrel, chopped it down to 19″ and gave it to me. The same friend brought a Blackhawk forend. In the meantime, Mitch at Mesa Tactical sent Urbino Tactical stock. I asked for the adjustable version because I had a red dot in mind…that was before I realized that the shotgun had no rail for the optics. So I ended up with a Hi-Viz adjustable sight instead — I like being able to regulate the sight to match the point of aim of slugs. The result was a pretty handy shotgun. I am considering adding a +2 extension to the magazine tube, but that would make the gun more front-heavy and harder to control with one hand if necessary.
Since I can’t hold the shotgun and take a picture of it at the same time, I asked a friend to do so. Something tells me that she can hold her own in sweeping hallways clean of intruders even without a formal black belt in gun-fu.
