I just wanted a 300 dollar 870
A few months ago I bought an 870 Tactical Express for 300 bucks... This was back when Dicks was still selling guns, and on one of their holiday blowouts.
Of course no one can be happy with things as they are and the modular nature of shotguns I HAD to replace the stock and foreend with Magpul MOE.
Why stop there? I replaced the flimsy plastic trigger plate with the beefy police model.
Not to be deterred, I then realized that the bead sight is hard to see and a ghost night sight police barrel would be cool and give better groups at longer range--and while I'm at it replace the extractor.
...so for "300" dollars I wound up building a police shotgun I should have bought in the first place. My wife says there's a lesson there somewhere.
