Raptor Grip for Remington 870

raptor grip

Shockwave Technologies makes a birdshead-type grip for the Remington 870 shotgun called the Raptor Grip.  The grip is polymer and replaces a standard 870 stock in just a few minutes.  If you’ve never swapped the stock on an 870, don’t worry – it is dead simple to do.

    I’ve always wondered how I could make a shotgun useless while fulfilling my Mad Max fantasies. Now I have a way. Thanks TFB!

  • Blunderbuss

    Birdshead for 500’s, pistol grips for 870’s. Otherwise the safety is in the wrong place.

    • JT

      oh yeah. I only shoot 500’s, so I forgot about the safety. This thing is as useful as low profile tires on a mudding truck

      • gunslinger

        who has the crappy safety?

  • Michael

    Is it possible to make something similar for the side by side coach guns?

    • ap

      I have a Baikal coach gun and if I ever had a spare/split/salvaged stock for it I’d probably take it to the bandsaw then do some sanding.

    I have the higher priced Speedfeed version on my 18″ 870 and find it useful. When I’m checking livestock it makes exiting the truck with the gun a lot easier. I wish I knew about this one before I bought the Speedfeed. It’s poorly cast with flashing all around that I had to sand off and a sharp bolt plug hole. The plug itself doesn’t fit flush either. Keep in mind, not everyone uses their gun the same way. What might not be so useful to all you tactical room-clearing operators out there might be just what a farmer, outdoorsman, etc. has been looking for. Also, watch your wrist shooting highbrass in 12ga pump with a pistol grip. These birdsheads allow the recoil to be absorbed much differently.

    Someone pleas buy this then video the result when you fire. One handed preferably. You should probably where a goalie mask.

    • Clint Notestine

      or have some wrist protection

        I think you’ll find that shotguns with birddies are best fired push/pull and from the hip, more or less. The foregrip strap is a great addition, I’m sure. If you think you can draw a bead with this setup you may end up with the condition know as “Chicklet Orbital.”

    • Raptorial

      You mean like hickok45 and his Mossberg 500?

      • gunslinger

        looks like the when it fires, the slide moves back some and there’s issues with reloading. only when firing one handed.

        would be a fun time.

  • ToMaZi

    You’ve made First Person Shooter designers very happy

  • Matt

    I have the speedfed which i have not installed yet.

    A wooden one would be tempting, this guy can make it on request.

  • JumpIf NotZero

    Better than a hacksaw and purple duct tape I guess.

  • JumpIf NotZero

    Is this the company that was selling the 500 version with the notes that with a 12″-14″ barrel and this grip it was over 26″ and this did not count as an SBS, or and AOW, so long as you started with a non-stocked shotgun?

    Seems better to me than buying an AOW. Saw some about it for awhile then nothing. Did the ATF shut that down?

    • Cymond

      Same company. Last I heard, they had ATF clearance in a similar way to the Franklin Armory XO-26. It’s possible that the ATF has flip-flopped on themselves, but as far as I know, these are still legal.

    Honestly, I’m not a big fan of these kind of grips as i feel like you lose a lot of control and ability to place your shots accurately. I have tried out various Remington 870 accessories and have switched out my grip to an ATI tactical grip with a telescoping buttstock, but I think I still prefer the wooden stock that came with the gun for most purposes.
