Bee-ooo-ti-full 870 ya got there. I have a similar one, and they are just so classy. So much so I had to get an 870 Express SYnthetic to knock around the woods with so as to not hurt the wood on mine. Welcome!

Thanks Scorpion8! Got the first upgrade done today with a new recoil pad. The original was so hard it felt like cement!

Nice work. I originally got mine intending to use a slug barrel because I live in bear-a-plenty land. But the wood was too nice to tote in the muskeg and timber, and it was too heavy for trap. But as my plan developed, my first upgrade was a hi-vis mag follower that allowed you to determine by touch-alone that the mag was empty w/o looking. Can be very important in my neck of the woods. Enjoy!
