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...

Very nice. What make and model reflex optic do you have on there?
Are you pointing the shotgun at your face for the last pic lol?
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.

I drilled a few holes and attached a shell holder...
Pretty cool looking. I was considering doing this a couple months back. Does the recoil feel any different?
How much does it weigh?
There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.
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.
