Talk:Remington Model 870
Should we have a section for the Remington wingmaster?Oliveira 20:15, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
I'm removing some of the images on this page because it's starting to get ridiculous how users are adding so many images to this page, especially when they are images that don't need to be here, or are very low quality. I'm sorry if I removed anyone's images, but this page is starting to become a cluttered mess, plus if one image was added in the Remington 870 section, it would have went into the Slug Gun section.--Alienqueen11 18:31, 25 September 2009 (UTC)
Please stop putting the different tipes of guns on the main page.--Dillinger 20:14, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
Can a Remington 870 be modified to accept a detachable box magazine?
I saw an airsoft gun the other day modeled after a Remington 870 with a receiver cover with picatinny rails, an M4 pistol grip, a telescoping stock, and a detatchable box magazine. Now I know it probably had the magazine just because it would work a lot better for an airsoft gun, but it got me thinking, can an 870 be adjusted to accept a box magazine?
- It could be based on the Valtro shotgun (which kind of looks like a Remington 870) or it might be able to be modified that way. For instance, there are pictures showing the Mossberg 500 can accept mags, so maybe it can. Not sure:
Nah I'm pretty sure it wasn't a Valtro. Thanks for the Mossberg pic. That's One Angry Duck 16:22, 31 July 2010 (UTC)
- Could the weapon you are looking for be a pump action HAWK Tactical shotgun?Rockwolf66 04:28, 15 August 2010 (UTC)
Those airsoft ones only have the box magazines as the little plastic pellets don't work well in shells, and I'd expect for something reusable, that a non ejecting, higher capacity magazine would be more efficient than having to catch shells and re load them. As for the real one, I have never seen one. Maybe some vague conversion, but I have only seen 870's tube fed.--Fnlover 00:48, 7 January 2011 (UTC)
- Airsoft shotgun shells are re-usable, most of them aren't shell ejecting either. The spring shotgun shells are fantastic, you get 10 shots out of them as they fire 3 shots at the same time on the tri-shot versions. Having a magazine loaded one is just to make it cheaper to manufacture. --cool-breeze 02:35, 12 January 2012 (CST)
Well the Chinese make a Remington 870 Knockoff that does take fiver round magazines. They can't be imported to the US but they are available in Canada with barrel lenghts between 12.5 and 18.5 inches. Rockwolf66 (talk) 17:32, 18 November 2012 (EST)
- Chinese shotguns are exempt from the ban, but must still comply with SBS laws. The Dominion Arms Grizzly is available with barrels as short as 8.5" in Canada (manual action rifles and shotguns can have any factory-length barrel so long as the overall length is at least 26"). They also made an 1100 with a four round detachable box magazine. --Maxman (talk) 23:34, 8 July 2016 (EDT)
Is there still no ID Image of this configuration? The 870 looks sweet with the heat shield and bayonet mount! I also realised this gun has no stock whereas Terminator 3 does.- 188.8.131.52
- We have one image with the heat shield and another with the bayonet mount. So I used those two images. One with a full stock was also used in Natural Born Killers. Not that I would ever run around with a bayonet on mine, I would love to configure one of my 870's with the heat shield and bayonet mount. It looks so tough and rugged. But I think those bayonet mounts are hard to find.--Predator20 17:29, 5 December 2010 (UTC)
There is no 'off the shelf' configuration for this item. The heat-shield would come and go, but the bayonet lug was standard on a lot of old Army/Navy 870's. If you search 'Navy 870 bayonet lug', you will probably find a little info. You can find them for sale on some of the larger 'gun exchange' site, but they're up around $250 now. A shame. --Gwhysow 22:31, 11 January 2012 (CST)
It's either a mid 80's refit of a USMC gun that's had the Air Force heat shield added on, or a gun modified with the Air Force/ USMC Refit/ Police bayonet mount/ barrel band and a heat shield. In the mid '80s refit of the Mk 1s the DoD replaced the 21" Imp Cyl Rifle sighted barrel with a non iron sight barrel, and replaced the blade sight bayonet mount/ barrel band with a bead sight model. The gun can be differentiated from the Air Force issued models due to it having a 21" Marine Corps barrel vs the 20" barrel that the Air Force specified (20" barrels are flush with the front of the mount.--Ranger01 (talk)
Why is the sawn-off version of the 870 called that?
First off sign your posts.
The model with the "dogbone" pistol grip and the 12 inch barrel was origionally created by Wilson Arms for the US Marshals service for their witness protection teams. Since then Remington shotguns in that configuration have been called "Witness protection" models. Rockwolf66 (talk) 17:29, 18 November 2012 (EST)
Is there a difference between an "extended" magazine tube and a "high capacity" magazine tube, or are they different terms for the same feature? - User: 2wingo
- I believe they're the same thing. Normal capacity on an 870 is 4+1. --Funkychinaman (talk) 01:17, 15 December 2012 (EST)
- And what is the capacity for the extended magazine? Is it 7+1 or 8+1? (or both are possible?) --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 04:35, 31 August 2013 (EDT)
- Hi there...usually we just talk about "magazine tube extensions", but especially Mossberg like to use the term "high capacity" for the same parts; then the confusion is perfect! Otherwise the term "high capacity" is used too to describe larger magazine types like the Beta C-Mag or related systems (Drum-, Pan- and Helical-Magazines). There are also larger box-magazines for M4/M16/AR-15 variants from Surefire, 60-& 100rds...Surefire called them "High Capacity Magazines" too! There are several tubes with different capacities for shotguns. It goes from 1 to 9 (Benelli); it just depends of the barrel length. --Biskaya (talk) 17:18, 3 March 2015 (EST)
