Banshee,

Any chance of you loading up the photos of that awesome shorty again - and maybe a few words about how you build it?

Thanks

Janus

Sure no problem. I haven't made any new pictures, so these are all old.

The shotgun started out as a Wingmaster Police trade in with a Mossberg replacement barrel that I picked up for $149.00. So, no nice 870 was harmed in this transformation.

There was a LOT of time spent measuring and planning on what needed to be done to make everything work out to reach my goal of an OAL of less than 18 inches. I chose 18 inches because that is the legal limit of a non NFA shotgun barrel and I wanted the whole gun to be shorter than that limit. I surpassed my goal by 1/2 inch.


I mounted the receiver in a lathe using a four jaw chuck and a steady rest. Cut the mag tube down and re-threaded it with the same square thread Remington used. The barrel was cut down to 7.00 inches and the barrel support ring was removed with a torch, reshaped so it would fit the barrel in the new location and silver soldered in place. The fore end tube had to be shortened and re-threaded. I made several different sling mounts and finely decided to use this one here.

I machined the 12 sided nut to hold the barrel on.

I installed an Ithaca M&P brass bead

I cut a beautiful TB Trap fore-end down, worked and reworked it to fit the tube.

Neat to see details, Banshee. I really like how that fore-end looks; seems much more practical than the folding vertical grip you see on a lot of shorty pumps.

I don't know if this is off topic but the slam fire trigger group makes a lot of sense to me . So keep me posted on any progress on some safe modifications [still pass the drop test] or indeed were to buy a ready to go drop in unit. I am definitely interested.

My humble submission:

Remington 870 Wingmaster (1980's Police trade-in given to me as a gift years ago). Wasn't in the best shape - I removed the beat up wood furniture, added the +2 extension and sent it off to Wilson Combat for their Remington Steal package. It turned out better than I expected... they added the ghost ring sights, factory synthetic furniture, new magazine spring and high vis follower, oversized safety, and refinished the entire gun with their armor-tuff finish.

Couldn't be happier with the result!

I am planning on getting the Magpul stock you have. I do have a question though. Does that Remington recoil pad attach to the Magpul and bolt right on? Did you have to do anything different to the Magpul stock to get them to work together?
