Any 870 smiths to send one in for work?

I see all the pistol smiths around online, for 1911s, wheelguns and the such. Was wondering if theres any 870 smiths. The finish on mine is crap (express) and i want to see what options are, and if anyones reasonably priced maybe deck it out with a tube extension and the such.

There are several.
Since this is custom work, prices may be higher than you could buy a similar Remington Police gun and actually have it cost less.

Wilson's offer several packages including their "Remington Steal Deal", as does Tank's Rifle Shop, and the esteemed Hans Vang who's famed for his barrel work:

Wilson looks like they can do what i want, parkerizing the finish which would be weather resistant, unlike what ive got. There site only has price lists for 1911s though, no idea what cost would be.

Check out ROBAR finishes. Robbie does some amazing things to 870 guns.

I have one 870 that Wilson did the their magic to and I like the work.

Good Luck & Be Safe
