Never heard of ten shot. My 870 holds 7. Only light worth your time is Surefire. I personaly dont like pistol grips. The Surefire light is actually the "forend", so you dont need to purchase another. No red dot on my shottie, so I cant help here. But I would only use Aimpoint or EOTech. Thats alot of recoil were talkin. Just my opinions. -Justin

The 10rnd mag is for 26" barrels or longer.
I have a Choate 10rnd (actually 9+1) ext mag on my 26" Mossberg M5500. Not as handy as a 18-20" shotty but plenty of ammo in reserve to defend a fixed, static position.

I'd skip the red dot if this was to be a defensive piece, as 12 ga recoil is tough on optics. And get a Surefire forend. Expensive, but again, tho only one proven to stand up to 12 ga recoil.

I have a Choate 10 shot extension (10+1 ) on an 11-87. It weighs a metric ton loaded up, but it is a lot of firepower. I wouldn't want to carry it very far in the field....

The best one that I have found was Remington's "For Law Enforcement Only" top-folding stock. It's very, very ergonomical and very toungh. It is a steel stock with a polymer pistol grip. I have seen them on eBay every now and then. I like them because they were made by Remington.
