Perfect for that Short barrel shotgun build. Actually that is what I was going to use it for. Just don't have the time for another project. Remington 870 Police receiver, engraved before bluing really professionaly. SCHP for South Carolina Highway Patrol. New internals, 6 round sidesaddle included. No stock or forend is fitted. I was going to pickup a used speedfeed set in the classifieds here for $45 but never got around to it. Barrel is 20" with bead. no corrosion and good bluing. $310 shipped, money order or check. NO paypal.
Apparently I need to clarify some things.
The receiver was engraved POLICE at the factory. It denotes what model of 870 shotgun it is. This is the police model, the overbuilt one designed for a lifetime of neglect and abuse in a police cruiser. It has the metal trigger guard assembly versus it's cheaper express sibling. This marking was not added after the fact.
This shotgun does not come with an extended mag tube. It has the standard mag tube and factory cap. I really had no use for one as I was going to have the barrel chopped down even with the standard mag tube cap when I got it registered as a short barrel shotgun. You give up rounds to gain manuverability.
All hardware to fit a butstock and forend is included. Just not the actual stock and forend pieces. Any set out there will work. My preference first to the argaunaut arms adapter and then to speedfeeds. Good luck on the argaunaut. If anyone has one to sell me I'll keep this gun.
