    MTMilitiaman:

    I believe they are indicating that, if the user doesn't hold the forend firmly they may find that the hand could slide into the bulbuouos protrution on the forend due to compression of the stock during recoil. They're therefore suggesting positioning the hand far enough back that if this occurs tbe hand will not be hit.

    In reality, I have never experienced such a problem with mine.

    Tactical or tactile?

    Not as "tactical" as some posted here, but:
    1) good enough to remove part of the head of an intruder.
    2) it is "tactile". (Tactile: Pertaining to the sense of touch.)

    Um hmm.

    It WILL reach out and "touch" someone.

    Hey, look: I've got the same color carpet as a dude in Omaha.

    ID.B5, thanks.

    I think so, too.

    So plain,
    but so ... functional.

    Not sure if "tactical" is the right word...

    Rather over-used as a term these days. I think I saw an ad for "tactical" lingerie the other day, as a matter of fact.

    Regardless, this home-defense Remington 870Mk1, not unlike the USMC 870Mk1, sits next to the night stand loaded with full-brass 00 Buck.

    Bayonet's not normally attached, but can be:

    The Knoxx SpecOps significantly reduces felt recoil. I've shot 50 rounds of 00 buck and 25 rounds of slugs through it and it felt like shooting birdshot through a standard stock.

    Super cool! Where did you find that thing? And what are the chances I could get my greedy little claws on one?

    The DoD bought a lot of those Rem 870Mk1 versions decades ago.

    They also bought the conversion kits, which include the magazine extension, barrel clamp w/bayo lug and sling swivel, bolts, and replacement mag spring. The kits were packaged in a neat little cardboard box with a big green "Remington" on the side.

    About 14 years ago I found one of the kits, new-in-box, at the Cal-Expo gun show in Sacramento.

    I did some reading after seeing a real-live 870Mk1 guarding a SAC missile silo in the Great Plains, and used a WalMart 870 3" Express model as the donor gun for my own 870Mk1 example. I used a Remington 20" smoothbore deer barrel with rifle sights to better match the magazine tube. The extended choke tube brings the muzzle just forward of the bayonet stud.

    It's a heavy piece of hardware, probably intended to stiffen the barrel and mag tube in the event one really does use a bayonet to ventilate a bad guy. There are three bolts holding the assembly to the barrel and mag tube, which is why one will find a ring on Remington factory mag extensions for clearance of that offset middle bolt:

    870mk1leftblade.gif

    Some 870Mk1 shotguns had rifle sights, others had a simple gold bead front sight. I really like the tall front sight of the deer barrel, so I notched the barrel clamp to accomodate the sight. The metal heat shield on the barrel also got notched before parkerizing to accomodate the rear rifle sight.

    In a departure from the original wood stocks of the military 870Mk1, I went with a synthetic. The stock is a SpeedFeed, sans shellholder, with Monte Carlo comb. When shouldering, the eye is in perfect alignment with the rifle sights, particularly that big front sight, which is the center of where the load of 00 Buck will go after it squeezes through the Extra Full Turkey choke. I enjoy tight patterns out to about 40 yards with the combination, entirely adequate for a defensive shotgun.

    Not a bad tool for boarding parties, either. Note the young marine below, but I'd love to ask him what happened to the sights on the gun...

    As XavierBreath mentioned above "The tacticality is behind the recoil pads" :)

    I carried one like #2 in 1969 in VN with a Recon company with the 101st. My father sent it to me straight from a surplus sale from LAPD!:cool: I carried it up "Hamburger Hill" among other places and countries. I was started on a 20 ga. Model 37 when I was 14 or so, I KNEW how to use it!;) I STILL have the 20 ga. 37 from my youth, the LAPD 12ga. one was passed to another INTEL guy. These days my wife uses an Ultra Light Model 37 DeerSlayer for HD and ranch/garden chores!:D

    Not Tacticool.......maybe even ugly.

    I submit to you, dear reader, my ugly shotgun.

    The unprettiest of the lot, with a dark buttstock and a light birch forearm. An express "finish" adorns her 3.5" chamber, and a Mossberg 18.5" barrel speaks for her. Her name is Frank, and she keeps me safe at night. :)

    But, she's got well over 1000 rounds through the action, maybe 100 through the barrel, and is nowhere close to "Wearing In".

    Here's my new Remington 870, has a surefire 618FA with a custom stainless steel plug I made for it, and an R3 pad. Haven't gotten the 18" barrel yet but I'm working on it.
