COBrien Posted September 26, 2019 Report Share Posted September 26, 2019 Now that she's back in patrol from CID, the wife has decided she'd like to have a personally-owned shotgun to go with her personally-owned (and built...) rifle. So I've been shopping. She prefers Remington 870s. Personally, I'm a fan of the Mossberg pump guns. She wants an 870 DM. I, personally, would prefer to give that platform another year or two to prove itself, but Momma gets what Momma wants. While browsing for her shotgun, I think I stumbled upon my next firearms purchase... The Remington 870 Hardwood Home Defense (81197). 18.5" barrel, 6+1. I've been trying to figure out how to modify a Mossberg 500 to accomplish the same goal, but it seems (from my limited -- nonexistent -- knowledge of modifying shotguns and a quick thought about how my 500 in .410 comes apart) it's impossible to extend the magazine tube on a 500. A 590? Sure. But buying a 590 is going to cost me a substantial amount more than the $385(ish) that the 870 HHD would. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
