I am not a huge fan of camo guns, but this one is not to bad. I like the ShurStock.

The most dependable slide action of all time super-tuned to bring the strut to a grinding halt.

Now featuring our new ShurShotâ„¢ synthetic pistol-grip stock, the updated Model 870â„¢ SPS ShurShotâ„¢ Synthetic Turkey offers both right-and left-handed hunters the pinnacle of lightweight shooting comfort and handling ease.

    I read it all what is posted here, but still nobody tells what are the real internal diferences between the 870 magnum express combo and this one, besides ¿in contruction comparison with the 870P what diferences are present?...

    About a year ago I bought a 12 ga Remington 870 super magnum that was set up as a turkey gun. It came with a camo, pistol grip / thumb hole type stock and a redot scope. It works great for turkeys and other stuff you have to aim at. A couple of weeks ago I took the scope off and tried using it to shoot trap. I find that I have to have the stock really high (almost above) my shoulder to not see the top of the barrel and to have it hit the targets. Thats not to comfortable. I am wondering if swapping the stock out for a normal stock will solve this problem? Anybody else have this problem? Anybody have suggestions for other ways to solve this problem? Thanks.

      @Paul Paul - I have essentially the same problem but my gun didn't come with sights. I cannot get my eye low enough that the barrell isn't pointing above the target.

      I put a picatinny rail on top of the receiver and it helped some but I am still not overjoyed. I am thinking of either a Ring O Fire sight or something else - to be determined as I think of something.

      Any comments? Oddly enough, I use the gun currently only for sporting clays, which is clearly not the intended purpose, but I actually do fair with it. My goal is eventually to equip it with a red dot sight.
