Not really a new toy, just an upgraded one.
Husband has a Remington 870 for home defense. He was shooting it with the original bead frontsight – said he wanted a red dot.
So, we started with: a Remington 870 Tactical with -
-Blackhawk SpecOps Stock
-FAB Defense picatinny rail handguard – with Streamlight TLR-1
-TacStar Side Saddle

While adding the red dot, I decided to make a few other mods and surprise him....
-Mesa Tactical Rail for the red dot – the receiver already had holes drilled in it
-Aimpoint PRO red dot
-Blackhawk Powerpak Cheek Piece - added the 5 shell holder but not the battery holder
-Tactical Response Jumbo Head Safety
-Removed the TacStar Side Saddle…would not recommend that product...and added a 7 shell side saddle attached with Velcro…..we’ll see how that one holds up…

Here's a couple pics.....

Thanks. We both love shooting it even more now with the red dot.....should have added that a lot sooner. Target acquisition seems so much faster....we'll see for sure next time we get to shoot it in one of Bill's classes.
I really like that cheek piece too. I can get a much better cheek weld than with the original stock, so even shooting slugs doesn't hurt!

Took the pic at sunset, so it's kind of red-looking too.
