Ted has been a customer and he had put this together for HD. It proves you don't have to put big bucks in a Defense gun and follows the KISS concept.

I am a proponent of the 20ga as an HD weapon or as an alternative Duty weapon for Officers of small statute. I have been pushing that concept for over 25 years and have tried to get multiple manufactures to make more accessories for the 20ga.   That is why I came up with the Lucy Adapter and Mitch at Mesa Tactical saw the value of being able to put 12ga 870 stocks on a 20ga 870 and manufactured it.  It is something to see your own idea on a Remington shotgun as the 20ga Tac-14 has a Lucy Adapter.

Ted used this until his Dad saw and it and guess what.  Dad has it now so Ted has to build him onw now.   So if you get creative a built a 20ga for HD don't let your Dad see it.  Here it is and I like it.

That is a fine looking 870 for sure. Nice job and Kudos on the Lucy adapter, what a great idea.

Nice looking HD 20 ga.! My Dad went to a 20 ga. 870 Express for an HD shotgun a few years ago. He recently went to 9mm and .38 Spl. for HD handguns, down from .45 ACP. Just couldn't take the pounding on the wrists anymore.

I'll be there soon.  Mae West said "Getting Old ain't for Sissy's"  She sure knew what she was talking about.

I really wish there were more effective HD/SD/LE loadings from more manufacturers in 20ga. Would be really nice to see some #1 buck from Federal with their FC wadding, for example. Brenneke has done us a solid with the 20ga THD.

Thanks everybody for the compliments and JD for parts, service, and advice.
I’m really happy with the way the 20ga turned out. I did keep it somewhat basic. I started with a Volquartsen extractor, 1100 carrier spring, police sear spring, Vang Comp big button safety, red aluminum follower, Nordic Components 4 shot tube extension, Choate forend, Mesa Tactical 4 shot side saddle, a generic mount with rails, Streamlite TLR 1 light, IC Remchoke, and a generic sling.
I ran a box of shells through it to test and I was VERY happy with the results to say the least!
