    It's been a while since I looked at this thread, but I've thought about it from time to time.

    I need to get around to actually finishing mine. Have everything except the left handed 870. Need to stop spending money on other toys... Oh well when I get my tax return I am goin to get the LH 870 and finish it. Doin a vertical grip up front instead of the cut bat.

    I got pic hungry after i read through this, and was surprised that I was surprised that this hasn't been done by anyone else (before or after yours, DH).

    Anyone want to sketch up what this would look like if it were two over-unders??!? yeah yeah, it would be heavy, but think about it... I think I will be for a while now


    the stock might be a bit of a problem (again).

    You do realize that the inevitable conclusion to this project will be mounting a Masterkey underneath, right? Baby Jesus won't sleep soundly otherwise.

    Sorry to revive the zombie thread, but I just came across this for the first time and I have to give you props. That's one wicked shotgun!

    Deer Hunter-

    I noticed in the near-beginning of the thread that you were having an issue finding (apparently you did) an 18 inch LH barrel for the build. I'm currently trying to design a similar build, but seem to have the same issue. My Rem 870 LH has a 28 inch barrel on it, and 18in barrels for it, really ANY barrel except 28 inch barrels are impossible to find. Did you have yours cut down or did Midway USA actually have one for it back then (they don't seem to have any now, as of this writing...)

    wow, I'm only three years late to the thread, but this reminded me of an Aussie zombie movie I have. One of the feature weapons is a triple pump gun. I'm going to have to watch it and see more closely how it operates.

    I used to follow this thread and was thinking about it the other day. Has anyone heard anything new on this? Also, what happened to Deer Hunter?

    I can tell you without a doubt that Deer Hunter is at least alive and well, even if he's not particularly active here.

    As far as I know the 1740 is complete, by his standards and still in his possession.

    Are Remmy 870 barrels handed, or are they interchangeable between LH and RH guns?

    They are "handed".

    Here is mine

    I saw this when I was a kid in a magazine and now I got one working on the 11-87 ver now so I used utg metal fore grips and cut them down to fit between the barrels and add shot extensions to both guns the m60 sling is great and the utg fore grips come drilled and threaded for rails I just got some hex set screws and some thread locker and done deal the receivers are connected with a steel plate and brought down to one stock this stock is going to be upgraded to a black hawk shock absorbing one soon and I love it if you can find a left hand 870 get started I love to hear your comments thanks

    You can reslove the safety issue by replacing the trigger plate assembly on the right hand gun with a right hand eject/left hand safety trigger plate assembly. You then have two left hand safeties and can bond a spacer bar between them to make on long bar. You now have a dual same directional safeties.

    Just thinking of the pump design. In regards to the wood part, the easiest thing to use most likely would be a 2x4. A few select passes on a router would make it work rather nicely. Two passes to round the edges and three more to hollow out the center to fit over the tubes.
