    My Remington 870 Tactical Build

    Picked up a Remington 870 Express a couple weekends ago at Cabelas. I've always loved the Nighthawk Custom 870's but could never justify spending $2,000 on the one I wanted....So I decided to build a replica with all the same/similar parts. So far I've ordered every single piece that I need. Once all the parts get here I will be sending the gun to Vang Comp Systems to have the sights installed and his VCS Porting done to the barrel. Here's a pic of what she looks like now before any modifications have been done:



    And here's the parts list of everything I have ordered/planned for it:

    -18.5" Barrel
    -Mesa Tactical Barrel Clamp w/ 2" Picatinny Rail
    -Mesa Tactical 6-round Side Saddle
    -Mesa Tactical LEO Stock Kit
    -Hogue Pistol Grip
    -Hogue Forend
    -Magpul CTR Stock
    -Wilson Combat 2-round Magazine Extension
    -Vang Comp Ghost Ring Rear Sight w/ Picatinny Rail
    -Vang Comp White Dot Front Sight
    -Vang Comp Big Dome Safety
    -Vang Comp VCS Barrel Porting
    -Remington Carrier Spring (870P model)
    -Remington Heavy Sear Spring (870P model)
    -Remington Non-MIM Extractor (870P model)

    I'm pretty sure that's everything. The end product should look exactly like this:

    Lol. I haven't done anything to it yet. Still waiting on all the parts to arrive. The last 2 pics are of the Nighthawk model that I'm replicating. This same gun is on gunbroker right now for $1999.

    Got everything for the build today, except for one piece...the Leo stock kit. It should of been here by now, but for some reason the vendor isn't responding to any emails or phone calls after 10 days. Grrrrr...They're an A+ vendor on gunbroker too, with over 700 positive feedback so it doesn't make any sense. Oh well, on to the pics:

    All new parts for reassembly:



    All assembled with sights sitting in place, but not yet mounted. They will be installed when the gun is sent to them for the barrel modification and porting.

    As luck would have it, I finally got a response from the Vendor in regards to my stock kit. Hopefully I should have it by the end of the week. Then only thing left is to send it to Vang Comp to get the barrel ported and the sights installed. Can't wait.

    Got the LEO stock kit today. Only thing left is to send it to Vang Comp. Pretty happy with the fit and finish of everything so far. Looks a lot different than it did stock.

    No reason to if you plan to replace everything like I did. The only parts I actually upgraded to the Police model were the springs and extractor.

    Right now I've got about $1250 in it. After sending it to Vang I'll be up to about $1600-1700.
