Default So I decided to change the Shotgun a bit

So the wife and I don't shoot Skeet so much anymore and we decide to convert the Ol Remington's into some additional home defense weapons.

So yesterday I started with a standard 16 Gauge 870 Express and a 12 1100 as seen below. You can also see that they are both 48" in length.

They don't make a kit for Susan's 16 so I tore hers down and checked to make sure all of the 12 gauge stuff fits and it does. So Now I need to order a second kit for her 16 gauge and I installed the Archangel kit on my 12 along with a new 18" Police barrel. This also made the weapon 12" shorter so now it comes in at 36" collapsed.

Susan's has an 18" Barrel on now but I will add the stock and forarm grip when they come in.

I also plan on adding a 2 round tube extender to both guns to bring the total magazine load up to 6 in the tube with 1 in the chamber.

What do you think?

This is now Loaded with Herter's Defense loads and stashed in the upstairs.

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didnít pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

OMG! It was OK in it's original configuration but now you've gone and turned it into a scary black gun.

Looks good. Nice work.
