    not bad looking. I got my 870 with a full stock and find that the recoil is quite substantial. How does it feel with the pistol grip only?

    Feels good

    The feel is good but I need to shoot it some more to get use to it.

    I have a 1100 set up the same way. I use my 28" barrel for skeet and my 18" barrel with 00 buck for the house. I'm just too lazy to to have the pump...

    You can replace the bead sight, and find a better way to attach a sling. Drilling and tapping may serve you better than a few half-hitches. OMO

    My 18" Rem 870 sports a combo tac lite and pulsating laser, and carries a full load of #1 shot as per M. Ayoob.

    Looks great other than the pistol grip. In a home invasion situation you will be hard pressed to actually hit anything with the adreneline flowing.

    Here mine Rem, 870 20" barrel, rifle sights, ext mag 7 + 1, Houge fore arm, soft rubber for better grip, and a folding stock that also holds 3 extra rounds. Best of both worlds...

    Nice, I just prefer my Marine Mag 870, I find pistol grip shotguns to be too hard to handle. The recoil is extreme.

    I've kept all of my previous shotguns with full stocks. One of them was a Mossy 500 in 20ga, and I honestly believe I could take a shot one handed with it if I had to. I was able to cycle it one handed matter of fact. The Ithaca 37 kept it's original wood stock and forend and was a might bit heavier than the Mossy or Stevens. I'm getting closer to getting my 870 by working some extra days this month. Stock, 7+1 shot 12ga for $299, but I've got to say one thing about that humongous, receiver over-running forend they have on the regular model....it's going to be the first and probably only mod I make to the tactical forend. Brownell's has them for $26. If I bought the tactical 870 model with the tactical forend and speed feed stock, it would run another $125. Even if I had an SBS (which I'd love a 14" barrel 5shot), I'd still have it with a full buttstock. The balance just has to be there. Leave the pistol grip shotguns for the big screen IMO.
