    Okay, no more games -- Hawk Group China, Ultra 88 is what it reads on one side. On the other, it says Ultracell Inc. Ronkonkoma NY.

    I forgot to mention that $125 was NIB price. SGN lists it for $149.99 so I figure I got a bargain on the thing.

    Additionally, I cannot see how this thing differs any from the two 870s I have, minus the fact that this has a metal trigger housing. Other than that, this thing is rock solid. I even took my calipers to multiple parts and they all spec out virtually the same.

    Anyhow, just had to brag. This thing is gonna make a great trunk gun for my Civic. I'm gonna refinish it OD green, toss on a few accessories, and that should take care of it. After the DuraCoat, I can set it and forget it!
     
  4. USMC, you did good.

    What you bought is actually a Norinco 98, but Norinco has been using different names in order to get their rifles into the country (or so I've been told). They go by Hawk Group, Interstate Arms, Norinco, etc. I bought the same shotgun years ago and it hasn't failed once. It fires everytime, although I haven't used the short 12ga shells yet, but I've heard they work. I use bird shot, slugs, and 00 buck with no problems whatsoever.

    One thing you may want to note is that the screws and measurements for your rifle are metric. The accessories that are available for the Remington 870 will work, but you will need to swap out the screws for metric sizes.

    Umm, not too sure what "screws" you are talking about. I can't think of anywhere that it has screws to worry about when swapping out parts. My other 870 is below; I don't recall messing with a single "screw" when modifying that one...

    You have to unscrew at least one bolt....The stock I'm sure has a screw holding it in
     
  7. Bingo, that's the one. I had to order a metric threaded rod to get my aftermarket stock to fit.

    Okay, yes, there is a bolt there, a long assed one none-the-less.

    Lemme ask you this one -- where did you get the replacement screw from? I mean, if I order a Speedfeed stock, will they have the screw?

    Thanks for the help!

    I assume that you are questioning the ones in the 2nd picture.

    The fore end is a Surefire 618 and the stock is a Speedfeed Tactical IV-s (for short; it actually is only about 1/2" shorter than the Remmy factory stock).

  14. No problem man. Here's what I did...

    I took the female portion of the octagon looking bolt that goes into the receiver to the hardware store and found a metric screw that fit inside. I wrote down the size of the screw and searched online for a metric threaded rod like the one below. I'd give you size of the screw if I could remember. good luck. The stock I have is a pistol grip and a full length stock all in one.

    Oh, I also cut a couple inches off the front foregrip so I could fit the side shell holster on the receiver.

    Thanks much.

    Yeah, I knew about the 6-shot saddle. The Surefire fore end is made to allow use of a 6-shot saddle; I have a spare Speedfeed fore end that will work with a 6 shot saddle as well, but I think that I may make this shotgun identical to my other one, minus the sights and color.

    Should I do OD or grey?
     
  16. I would do an urban camoflauge finish. I've saw that shit on an FAL once and it looked beautiful. Let me know if you get a mag extension down the road and how it fits.

    I don't "hard chrome" per say; however, I can apply the DuraCoat color "stainless steel". I could even go over that with "clear" to have it shine more.

    The prices on my site would be the same. But you would have to add another $40 for the clear if you wanted that.

  23. Where the hell did this come from? :ugh:

    Seriously kid, don't form an opinion about a firearm until you've actually spent a good amount of time with it. The real world is alot different than a video game, correct?
