    Can't believe I missed this thread! Been shooting my 870 the past couple of weeks. Just put the shorter, ribbed fore end on it this week. I have a few more mods to make, and I'll be posting them and my experiences, pros and cons. I picked up a side saddle 4 shell holder today, and a magazine clamp for my M3 light as well. I'll be toying with all this next week since I'll be off work the whole week! For now, the pics are still the basic 870HD Express.

    OK first this is an awesome thread, thanks....second, why a "pump"?? Correct me if I'm wrong but seems to me that a pump is going to take WAY longer to get shots off than a semi.....and if there is an (insert end of world situation here) I'm going to want speed...

    I'm not one for the "end of the world scenarios". For my home I prefer simple and reliable. Seems some of the guys in the closest thing we've got the the end of the world at present agree.

    Shotguns for the military (as almost everything is) are "contracted by lowest bidder" (or there abouts) so not going to totally go with that. And no I'm not with the "end of the world" crowd, was just saying... I guess it's just a preferance thing, and maybe price? As a lot of the pumps I see in stores are a bit cheaper...
    To add to it I don't think any military branch has anything other than a pump??? Again, due to cheaper? But please correct me if I'm wrong, as I'm NOT an expert.

    Think the Benelli M4 was really the lowest bidder?

    Generally, reliability and durability.
    Semi-autos are a little quicker, to be sure, but surprisingly less of a speed factor than you might think (those big shells can only get in and out of there so quick).

    Semi-autos have gas system with seals, which must periodically be replaced. And which could fail at the exactly WRONG time.

    I did not know that, and thank you very much for the answer....On a side note, sorry for "the off topic" posts.

    Here is my favorite HD shotgun. I had a Mossberg 590 but I ended up selling it and switching back to my 500A as my primary shotgun. The 500A just feels better in my hands as the balance is more towards the rear and it isn't front heavy like the 590. I put a Specter Gear shell holder on it and called it good.

    that is one mean looking shotgun you have there! Where did you order the sling? I've been trying to find a good sling for my 870.

    I have a 870 TALO special edition that looks like this.
