  • Interesting 870 mod

    Material is removed from the front of the trigger guard to allow easier access to the action release. I'm going to do this to my SBS 870, I'll post before and afters.

    It's knowing that when I get up in the morning and my feet hit the floor, the Devil says, "Shit! He's awake!"

    Shortly before World War I, the German Kaiser was the guest of the Swiss government to observe military maneuvers. The Kaiser asked a Swiss militiaman: "You are 500,000 and you shoot well, but if we attack with 1,000,000 men what will you do?" The soldier replied: "We will shoot twice and go home."

          It should work especially well if you wear gloves.

            What was the problem that necessitated this modification?

              having a Mossberg allows you to press that switch without breaking your firing grip

              mine stays depressed just holding it

              pretty cool idea though. and one that makes a lot of sense.

                Bo, I have seen folks have a problem activating the release under stress.

                  sometime I have difficulty operating it in non-stress situations. This mod would make it closer to my Benelli and I have never had a problem with operating it.

                    Don't want ta appear ta be a malcontent, complainer but..... A protrusion such as that, looks like it's a just awaiting ta hang on something. Stress problems can usually be resolved with additional remedial training, like dummy action loads to cause reloading problems. Never tried it but,.. I wonder if the weapon will fire ifen I duct taped that hangdown thingy in the compressed position?

                      I don't see it hanging up, not when the trigger guard itself protrudes down 2" further. You're far more likely to snag a sling swivel or flashlight than a small, flat metal tab that protrudes less than 1/2".

                      If you duct tape down, or otherwise deactivate, the action release, the shotgun will still fire. The problem is, the "pump" won't lock either. If you apply any pressure to the forearm in a rearward direction, it will open the action. Not a good idea at all.
