    I'd say do your best to get in contact with Remington and see if they're selling 870P's again. They've supposedly resumed production of the 870.

    I have the Blitzkreig front sight on my guns, but that one would work just fine as well.

    Do yourself a favor and get a 5.5mm midget wrench with a box end to use on the locking nut. It will make...

    The receiver is anodized aluminum. Unless you break through the anodization, it's not going to corrode. To get proper adhesion you need to degrease the flat of the receiver with something like high...

    I think the Mesa stock is dogshit on the 1301. But people are still intent on buying it.

    Another note on fasteners:

    If possible, upgrading your fasteners to torx style heads instead of allen fasteners is a good idea, at least on the size fasteners we are usually dealing with IMO. The...

    Without question. But typically there's a lot less contact than laymen like us would believe. As little as 15% in some applications. I'd imagine it's higher than that in fasteners going into slides...

    Holes bored completely through the slide seem to be the exception rather than the rule. I suspect they did that to get as much thread engagement as possible for mounting optics.

    In those cases I...

    Loc-Tite's advice for use on a blind hole is to fill it about 1/3 of the way up hole and then tighten the fastener.

    The 18" bead sighted barrels on Mossbergs essentially require you to not be able to see the bead to have a proper sight picture. When I use a student's gun I actually "aim" with the screws in the top...

    An established option with a long history and many samples out in the wild being used is a good first step. That helps the potential problems to be known quantities going in.

    The primary cause of broken ejector housings on Remington 870 shotguns is failing to keep the magazine tube cap/mag extension tight. If that's not tight, it allows the barrel to move back and forth...
