    Picked this up last week for my birthday... Remington 870 Express Magnum

    [​IMG]

    » 6 + 1, 6 in the side saddle, and 3 in the stock
    » Pistol grip, sling, and heat shield is on order

    I got a buddy who is going to hook me up with ghost ring sights when I get the extra cash, but for now I am pretty pleased with it. There was another Remington with speed stock and ghost ring sights but it was "rebuilt". I just wanted something new.

    Not a fan of the stock but you can't go wrong with an 870.

    I'm debating ghost rings for mine but at the ranges I'd expect to be using it at I think the bead does fine.

    I was a little apprehensive about the stock as well, but it isnt as bad as I thought. A friend of mine has an 870 with folding stock and the stock itself is bulky and intrusive. This one fits nice in the pocket.

    that's a nice setup, but where's the light? j/k, I like it.

    I couldnt afford it! I was looking at the Surefire setup but given where the sling is I think that I might go another route. ATI makes a light setup where I could angle the light slightly away from the sling, so I might try that route.

    I liked that unit for the solid way it mounted, but the laser was kind of a turnoff.

    Can you recommend any type of light setup for the shotgun other than Surefire?
