Could use a little help.

Postby CLUTCHfan » Sun Nov 10, 2013 6:13 am

My nieces have passed their hunter safety course, and I took them on their first squirrel hunt last weekend. A half a box of 28ga shells later, it became very apparent to me that I need to put youth stocks on the guns for them. If anyone has one or two youth buttstocks for an 870 in 20/28/.410ga, that they no longer use, I would be very interested in buying them. If anybody has even a standard length 870 stock for the smaller guns I would be interested in those, as I can cut them down.

It'd be a huge help, and even if you don't have one, but know somebody who might because their kids have grown and wouldn't mind asking around for me, that would be awesome.

Clutch, give Jamie a call @ Boltworks Tactical Firearms in Dryden, NY (they have a fb page and a website) I'll bet he will fix you up! Great guy, great gun shop, tell him I sent you.

870, don't base your opinion of auto loaders on an 1187, my opinion is that they were the "K" car of guns......cheap price, cheap built! They helped Remington out of a slump in sales but I feel it hurt their reputation. I own a 1100 that I have owned since the late 1970's it has NEVER failed me. Remington has now stepped up to compete with Benilii and Beretta, you might want to look at the new Browning A-5 (Browning went through their own slump when they moved production to Japan) I had one that was worthless! They're back in Belgium now and quality is back.

Clutch, I think I still have an 870 stock from when I switched to synthetic. It would be a 12ga Express Mag stock, so it's likely too big, but it's just taking up space here and you plan on cutting it anyway. Should be in pretty perfect condition. PM me if you still need one, I'll go looking for it.

I have a great early 70's model 1100, but after my first spur at Duck hunting last season i realized if I wanted this blued finish and walnut to stand the test of time I'm gonna have to change it up.

I ended up getting a Remington M887 because it's mostly a plastic, and comes apart easy for cleaning. I only need to thoroughly clean it about once a month ( if i hunt 5x or more ) and considering it gets wet. It's a solid gun and priced at under $500 is a great buy. I plan on upgrading soon to a VersaMax Duck gun or a Benelli Black Eagle 2, i like pumps but i like that semi auto speed a heck of a lot better.

If you have the money to spend I and want a semi for ducks i gotta admit the Benelli Black Eagle is a hard one to turn down, they are light in both weight and overall feel. A fellow i hunted with had one, and I couldnt believe how nice of a gun it was all around, it had the same feel as my .410 o/u in weight and swing but was a 12ga and when he dropped it in the water, the action housing came apart without him having to screw off the magazine cap and deal with all that nonsense like with my remingtons. it seemed incredibly convienent. I'll prob end up getting a VersaMax because its basically equal to the benelli except alot cheaper and sans the take apart feature that I liked so much about the Benelli.
