    I finally finagled my way through the Surefire fore end installation. It started off life as a Remington 870 Express Synthetic 7 Round model. Pretty basic shotgun with synthetic furniture and a bead front sight:

    I've had this gun for a little over a year and have added the following modifications:
    Wilson Combat Trak-Lock II Ghost Ring night sights
    Wilson Combat Jumbo Head Safety
    GG&G Sling Attachments
    Giles Tactical Sling
    Mesa Tactical 6-Shell Side Saddle
    SpeedFeed III Stock
    Surefire Fore End Weapon Light

    I think it's pretty much perfect...this shotgun is the equivalent of an M4gery with 11ty accessories. The only thing else I might do is have it refinished with some super-tough finish.

    The gun is pretty equivalent to a Wilson Combat Standard Model 870 as far as features go. The only features the Wilson has is the Armor Tuff finish, heavy duty magazine spring and a high visibility magazine follower. That gun retails for $1325 + shipping + FFL fees. Save the $ and build it yourself!

    :cool: Looks good. To be honest I'm not so sure about this Giles Wilderness sling. It's a little awkward. You need the SpeedFeed with shell carriers! Ok you might not NEED them, but +50 tacticool points.

    Dunno. Mine's been configured like that for over two years...
