Hi guys I just received my new tac-14 and haven't even put a shell in her yet but im already thinking of doing upgrades to make it more reliable this is going to be my truck gun. I have a new Volquartsen extractor in the mail coming and was told by a few guys to polish the bore and change out the trigger group to a police unit. other than the police trigger group that is really hard to find here in Canada what other up grades should I consider or is any of this needed and am I just throwing money at a problem that dose not really exist for peace of mind.

Do what makes you happy but as I understand it the Tac 14 is an 870 Express. Some people change out the extractor.

JD has some thoughts on the matter so I bet he will chime in on this post.

There’s a guy on YouTube that shoots them very well. He also sells a strap that attaches to the bird’s head grip and helps manage the little beast. If interested, I’ll dig up the link...

The Volquartsen extractor is an overpriced 1100/870 police extractor. The factory MIM extractors have been fairly reliable but you could have gone with a Remington steel extractor. The police trigger group is usually a metal housing with an 1100 black carrier spring installed. The general consensus on this forum is to use the Polymer housing and just upgrade the carrier dog spring. Like the first gentleman said: Do what makes you happy.

I disagree. If you lay the Volquartsen next to a non MIM steel extractor they are not the same. The quality is far better. Is it worth an $8 extra dollars you be the judge. Now if you want to debate is it needed over a steel non MIM thats another discussion. The steel non MIM has been killing and hunting flawlessly for 70 years.
BTW i run Volquartsen’s in most all my builds.
Trigger groups there are pros and cons to both but it doesn’t make a bit of difference. If you ask 10 people what the best semi auto handgun is 9 will say Glock- guess what its polymer.
If I were building a Tac-14 I’d do a Volquartsen extractor, 1100 carrier and heavy sear spring in the stock trigger group, police magazine spring, a Vang Comp big dome safety, and aluminum follower.
