Upgraded extractor, follower, spring, mag extension, SB brace. It's honestly not much shorter than an 870 with a magpul stock in the shortest config. Don't like the feeling at all shooting it with the bird's head grip and definitely don't trust other people to shoot it at the range with regular loads without a brace. Sounded like fun at the time but it honestly gets very little use. E-filed Form 1's are coming back in 21ish days so there's always the SBS option too I guess. That probably makes the most sense right now if that's an option for you.

I have one, if I had to do it over again I would get the Shockwave instead.

If these are available in 20 ga, that'd be the route. I have the Mossberg version in 20 ga and it's a hoot. The 12 ga is fun too, but yeah, recoil is stout. You don't lose much by dropping back. 20 ga is still plenty effective with decent slugs or buckshot.

Its an 870 self defense gun, IMO. Find the rounds you can shoot well, pattern them at the distances you would be most likely to use it, and put a light on it. I added a Magpul VFG to mine, but I know that isn't for everyone.

They are chambered in 12 and 20 gauges.

Iím biased to the Federal LE 132 00, the flight control wad makes for a very effective round.

I looked at the Shockwave but I've been a 870 user for so long and have most of the special tools for them .

I've been thinking about the brace and have a 1rd extension that's been sitting around , Never gave any thoughts to the extractor .
Form 1 isn't a thing for me because I don't want to have file the form to cross State lines because I have a home in Tennessee that I travel to on short notice

I do a lot of traveling out of state. If you have a home there, every year you can file a 5320.20 for your address that covers the entire year.

It's a fillable PDF, you print, sign, scan, email, and get an approved copy back in two weeks.

That's a possibility but I'm thinking just roll with the arm brace and not deal with the whole form 1 thing , If we fall in to a major SHTF and the Rule of Law is out the window than I'll put a real stock on it , Till then I think I'll stay out of the way of the Government . Plus it saves 200.00 that I can use to buy Ammo and Mags.
