    My new shotgun

    I put together this shotgun and took it to the range... I was very impressed. It handles great, feels great, and shoots great... totally loving it. Its working well, no problems at all.

    Remington 870 Express with Bullpup conversion kit. The hardest part was actually installing a magazine extension, not the Bullpup kit, that was relatively easy.

    I still need to find some shell holders i can rig to attach on here...

    Is he? All we know is that it's pointed at a camera.

    Very nice shotgun, did not even know you could convert a Remington 870 into a bullpup.

    Generally I'm not a fan of bullpup anything but there's a little part of me that thinks that looks pretty awesome!

    Looks great. Been thinking about doing that to an older 870 myself.

    That's cool, I like the shotgun "style" but that is a neat conversion. Hope it serves you well.

    Its a TruGlo, Red Dot, Tru-Brite Multi ... can do red or green at different intensities, and has a few different target options, though I just had it on the dot most of the time.

    it wasn't loaded, nor was it aiming at myself, just the camera :-) I thought it was interesting seeing the barrel and magazine tube in the front.

    Pretty cool looking. I was considering doing this a couple months back. Does the recoil feel any different?

    How much does it weigh?

    The recoil isn't really changed any. It feels slightly different just because of the shorter length, but it's still that same amount of recoil. The kit just has a normal Remington rubber pad on it.

    I haven't weighed it myself. The balance is great though. I don't have a scale worthy of weighing it accurately, but it's right around 8.5 pounds.
