Looks like a decent shotgun with ported barrel, AR style front and rear sights, mounting rail, telestock, and is not that expensive.

How good is it versus a 870?

FN Tactical Police Shotguns are based on the Winchester 1300 defender series, so most of the W1300 goodies fit it.

Is the C-More comes as a standard?

At the time I got mine (june last year) yes, not sure now.

The folks at SureFire tell me that their Winchester 1300 forends will indeed fit the FN.

Holy crap! You mean there might actually be a use for heat shields?

Perish the though!

Even the C-more is standard, it seems to me that many dealers sell the C-more separately in order to make couple hundred more bucks.

Or sell the shotgun in MSRP without the C-more.

The C-More came with the one we have for sale: www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=7&f=93&t=286520

It was included as part of the package.

Although the FN it is a nice shotgun I went with the 870 Police, with a full length Choate Mark 5 Pistol Grip Stock, factory tritium nite sites, a Wilson extended mag and a Wilson Side Saddle. My total cost was less than the FN and I really like it my combination.

Other than cost, my main complaint on the FN was the stock. I shot an FN at our local range and while the FN telestock is fine on an AR, it sucks on a shotgun when you routinely fire 3" slugs and I wanted a pistol gripped stock that would help manage recoil. The Mark 5 fits the ticket and can be adjusted to fit your body (and clothes for winter hunting).

I think the advantage to the FN is the rail (KACs for the 870 are $ and hard to find) and the ability to have a BUIS. It was probably designed for people familar with the AR system, so it has the perk, but it wasn't important to me.

Good luck with the decision.
