Well I took some pics of my slightly customized 870 Express to show some guys at work and thought you guys may enjoy them as well. I mean, who doesn't enjoy gun pics?
It sports a Remington Sureshot stock & a backyard red neck camo job! :o I added the Limbsaver to increase the pull just a bit. It also has a Carlson's choke and fiber optic sights.

They are just bad cell phone pics but you can still see the final product.
Thanks for looking!

Nice job, but it needs wear marks. A couple things...

Like motorcycles, shotguns lend themselves to being personal statements as well as tools or transportation. Changing something on a stock shotgun makes it more ours.

You didn't mention the mission. By looks, I'd say this was a turkey gun.

I find those kind of stocks slow, but if it works for you...

Thanks guys!
It serves its purpose well.
And Dave, that purpose is predators!
Sorry, I though I mentioned that.

With the Carlson's choke it will reach out there and touch one pretty hard!

BTW Dave, it has plenty off wear marks!;)

Some of the better camo jobs ARE the redneck ones.

Yours is a fine example...well done.

Thank you sir!
I have to agree with you on the paint jobs, I have seen some real good DIY camo jobs!
