I posted pictures of my 870 when I first joined this site, but thought I would add a few more since adding some new pieces to it. What I have done so far:
- Boyds Sterling Thumbhole stock with matching Fore end.
Polished the Chamber.
Replaced the bolt with a chrome one from a Wingmaster.
S&J Acid Green no jam follower.
Carlsons Extended Clay Choke.
I think I may polish the feed ramp as well, but am not sure about that just yet. I am almost done customizing my 870 so I guess that means I need to go out and buy another one so I can do it all over again!
So I know I have seen a lot of pictures of guns for home defense and they are very cool, but I would like to see some pictures of your Clay or Hunting 870.

RainMan_JH, very nice shotgun! The stock and shiny bolt look great!

Very nice job. The last few years I have been a bench-rest shooter. So I am used to seeing beautiful custom rifles. But now that I am retired. I have more time to get out. So today I pickup my new 870 shotgun. Looking forward to a whole new hobby.
It's great to see guys take pride in ownership.

I've taken my new (to me) '84 Wingmaster out to smash some clays the last couple weekends. The thing is awesome!

Some very handsome guns in this thread.
For clays, I just put my 28" vent-rib barrel on my receiver with my police stock. I'll put on my +3 extension when I'm just screwing around, or leave it off for more formal club/competition settings where I'm only loading one or two shells at a time. For chokes, I use the basic flush Remington choke tubes; I don't shoot seriously enough to warrant shelling out for really high-end tubes.
I wouldn't mind finding a thumbhole stock like RainMan_JH's someday, but since I have large-ish hands, a lot of thumbhole/pistol-grip stocks put my trigger finger too far forward.
