    I'm thinking about sending my 870 to Wilson to get Trak-Lock Ghost Ring sights installed. Has anyone sent any guns/slides to Wilson for any work? How did it turn out?

    ocabj, I have.

    Sent two older 870s into Wilson to convert into ST's "FBI Model" (if you remember that, your profile sez nothing about age--I don't know if you're a geezer like me!:D). They are outstanding.

    One minor error which was corrected within a week. Wilson sent one back with that silly gamer extended mag on it. It was corrected with apology.

    What was the cost on that? I'm thinking of getting ghost rings on my 870 but don't know where to start! Mike

    Big Mike, last year's catalog said something like $180 or so, I can check when I get home, it's been a while since I seen it. Not even sure if I still have it.

    Install Trak-Lock® Sights w/Tritium Front Insert (Bead Sight Barrel) : $140.00

    Install Trak-Lock® Sights w/Tritium Front and Tritium Rear Insert (Bead Sight Barrel) : $165.00

    Install Trak-Lock® Sights w/Tritium Front Sight (Rifle Sight Barrel) : $185.00

    The above prices are for parts and labor. Must include extra for return shipping.

    They quoted me a 3-week turnaround period. Rear sight is drilled and tapped in, and the front sight is staked and silver soldered in.

    Big Mike, I haven't a clue. Maybe call Wilson? It was the refit jobbie.

    Dan, gamer comment? That's what extended mags are for. Besides, what's wrong with gun games?

    Skunky, oh, fine. Something else to do! Now I gotta duel Cor. Cell phones at 10 paces?

    Tejon, do your 870s wear 4-shot tubes?

    I sent a new 870 to them before and would NEVER send a gun to them again. I had a lot of bad experiences with them from just this one gun. To give you the quick story, I had to wait months for the work to get done, mismatched and incorrect parts were installed, and one of the "new" parts was rusted. Here is the long story:

    Any half decent local gunsmith could do the work you need.

    I wanted to send my Wingmaster to Scattergun, but just never got around to it. Wound up buying a Remington 20 in barrel with rifle sights from Cabela's, and a 2 + tube from Scattergun. Put it together, and darn, its almost 'tactical'.

    In actuality, the old gal shoots just fine all gussied up like that. Cost was about $130.
