My 870 Express!

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! 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.
