    It's just the MOE rail section and an HSP Offset mount.

    With the light right on the MOE rail section, it basically just lit up the sling mount, and it had to be a bit further back. I had the HSP laying around, and it solved both issues, while only adding like, half an ounce.

    Bought this 870 police trade-in from Lawmen's in Charlotte recently. It's a 1974 vintage wingmaster with 20" CYL bore barrel. Great condition. It has a few scratches and dings but really not very bad at all. And of course it has that nice broke-in smooth 870 action. Lawmen's had a pretty good lot of them. The guy said they had recently bought a large bunch from a department in SC.

    Thanks Barrett
    Here are 2 more Remingtons. A 1980 vintage 870TB and a 1985 vintage 1100 LT-20. The LT-20 is an awesome dove and sporting clays gun.

    Sad, but to hear someone call 80s anything "vintage" is a little depressing :-(

    Ha-Ha sorry Barrett. But ain't it the truth. I didn't mean vintage like "old" but vintage like "from that era". The 870TB trap gun was a gift from my father in 1980 for college graduation. We used to trap shoot a lot back then. Dad is still alive but he can't shoot anymore. He still has his beautiful 1100 trap model. I bought the LT-20 new in 1985 for dove hunting. It all seems like yesterday! I can still specifically remember the experience and excitement of those 2 days when I got those 2 guns. Seems like it was just a few years ago at most. But no it was 35 years ago and 30 years ago!

    That Citori photo looks good enough to be an ad.

    Crazy isn't it? That's a shot with my iPhone from the dove field last year. Lighting just happened to be perfect. Dumb luck I guess. I really like it though.

    Chief love the Citori, its beautiful. What length barrel is on your daughter's youth LT20? I never knew they made a youth model.

    21" barrel, 12 3/4" lop. Just stumbled into it via BaileyBoat and EZ Pawn. Thought it was some sort of Franken 1100 from a Special Field. But they made a short run of LT-20 youth models. Perfect for my daughter. Couldn't be happier.

    870 tactical with Vang stainless follower, aftermarket mag spring, Comp-N-Choke .020", the required sidesaddle, slicked-up action, and usually a light attached to the barrel just ahead of the GG&G sling mount - it was removed for de-leading the barrel. I've used it for 3-gun, Gunfighter, deer and turkey hunting, and for HD classes. I used to have three of them - all 18.5" Rem 870s - but that was getting ridiculous so two of them were sold.

    I want to add a non-MIM extractor, aftermarket latch spring, and have the chamber honed so the low brass birdshot won't stick up, but other than that it's perfect.

    Just the right amount of wear. Really nice! How are the patterns?

    I've got a LeFever Nitro Express as well. It was my dad's. Well, actually my brother-in-law asked for it, and I let him take it with the understanding I got it back when he kicks the bucket, since he's several years older than I am. So is it safe to shoot 2 3/4" shells in it? I shot a few rounds through it, but stopped because it wouldn't lock up tight. My brother-in-law was going to get it fixed before shooting it. He lives in New Mexico, so I haven't seen him to ask if he has repaired and shot it. I didn't know about the shorter chamber (if this gun also has one).

    What gauge and when was it made? The 20 gauge ones had 2 1/2" chambers and the 12 gauge ones had had 2 9/16" chambers just like the 16 gauge ones had. In 1934 the chamber lengths in these guns were supposedly made with 2 3/4" chambers.

    IMPORTANT: Just because a 2 3/4" shell may fit in an old gun does not mean it is chambered for that length. Chamber length is designed for the open length of shell after firing. It will shoot but kicks much harder than it should. That's why lots of folks think the old doubles "kick like a mule".
    Lots of old Browning Auto shotguns had the short chambers as well.

    Each barrels shot placement seems to pattern well regarding pellet grouping. The "cylinder bore" barrel seems to be as open as a cylinder bore should be. The "full choke" barrel seems to be more along the line of an Improved Cyl with #6 shot and tighter with #8.

    But as in all other things I ain't no expert.

    It's a 12 ga. I don't know the year, and don't have the gun here to look obviously. The only number I saw on it was 34693x ('x' was a number, but I don't want to post the whole serial number) on the foreend. I have no idea if that is a serial number or not.
