Remington 870 Police.

Added:

Magpul stock
Wilson Combat +1 mag extension, high power spring, and high viz follower
XS big dot front fight with tritium
Blue force sling

Shoots great! The XS sight is soooo much easier to see than the stock bead sight.

Nothing like coffee table gunsmithing.

1/2 table for eating, 1/2 for gun stuff.

I actually have a nice work bench in my garage, and an oversized work table/desk in my office. But seems at start of the week my dining room table is spotless cleaned and cleared, but by end off the week all work gravitates to the dining room Table. Gun stuff, books, office work, etc.

Once again it appears you have very good taste...
It's a very good setup. It set up exactly the same as my shotgun. I also put a light on the Magpul forearm and it has an added benefit of lighting up the XS dot at night.

Is that a Remington? I'm not sure I'd buy a current Remington with the issues they have been having. I do like the concept though.

It is, its called a TAC 14. So far no issues, although it does shoot a bit high.

If get a Remington, go with the Police models. The Express models are junk. The Police models are hard to find, cost couple hundred more. But have better quality control and use better parts.


Now if you want a good shotgun, good price, right out of the box? FNH P-12.

Just took a friend, who had a new P12, through some shotgun drills few days ago. About 60 rounds. Flawless. Reliable. Accurate. Less expensive than a new Glock and FNH quality .

Completely agree with this assessment. Lucked out with the last shotgun I bought. 870 Police model that was a Corrections Department surplus sail...$220 for it. Practically new (pretty sure I posted it in this thread).

Still not thrilled about the new finishes though. My work 870 that I use for beanbags starts to rust if I look at it wrong.

After doing both, I'd recommend just going the Duracoat route and doing it yourself. I've done an AR and with an Arsenal AK (great rifles, terrible finishes).

Interesting. Not to sidetrack. I also have an Arsenal AK (Ive had it for years; never fired). I am aware of the finishes on them. However, been considering, but never Duracoated before. Curious about the difficulty.

Basically I stripped off as much of the crappy finish (seems to be some sort of paint over Parkerizing) that I could using degreaser and elbow grease, then applied Duracoat according to the YouTube tutorial from the company.

Duracoated several times. Used the bake on finish two times and the Non-bake two times.

Baked on, is about like it sounds. Correction. . . exactly like it sounds. I only know because my wife chose to change *Color Schemes* at a later date. My God what a pain.

The Non-Bake produces a great finish as well. Though I haven't handled those weapons nearly as hard since they are long guns vs. Pistols. Pistols held up well to holstering repeatedly.

The first two were the Spray cans. The last two were using my airbrush. Cans produced as good a finish as air brush.

@AZ5326 Sprayed my Molot with Carb Cleaner and stood out of the way while the *paint* puddled on the deck. LOL.

ETA @jportal50. It's easy enough. Time consuming if you want a decent finish, or have more than one tone or color. Prep is where the time comes in. I'd give it a B rating on tech/difficulty if changing a tire on a car is a C rating.

Yeah, that sounds much easier than giving my local gun store $125 to Cerekote the gun.
