Nighthawk vs Vang Comp

Post by RoBro Cop » Tue Oct 23, 2018 4:22 am

Good evening, gents.
I'd like to purchase a premium 870, and I was hoping someone could fill me in on the differences between 870s from Nighthawk Custom and Vang Comp Systems. Furniture aside, they seem to be nearly identical. Anyone have any experience with both?

They want lot of money for those when they start with Express models, nothing premium about them. You could get an 870P police model for a third of what you will pay for one of those guns and start with a premium platform for a build,the following link is not my gun but an example of what you could start with.

That answers exactly none of my question. Also, if you're trying to sell a gun, try the board's buying and selling section.

They are going to be pretty much the same thing. Just different looks. Go with your preference I would also look at Wilson combat. All in all you can’t go wrong with either one. Something to think about they are all 870’s same parts and components same reliability.

I would seriously consider Wilson Combat. Seems, at least to me, that they make the best "Premium" 870. GunBroker has a few of them on there last time I looked around. Vang Comp is good too, and haven't heard much about Nighthawk.
Still, I'd give Wilson Combat a look.

While I agree he technically didn’t exactly answer your question I believe what he was trying to do was throw out another option. All 4 of those ‘premium’ shotgun builders start with the lowest quality $2xx platform. A police magnum or Wingmaster would be a substantial upgrade as a base platform and building upon that you could have a far superior shotgun for half the price when finished and if you want the ‘cherry on top’ send Vang Comp your barrel for treatment although not completely necessary.
