Hands on with Bullpup Unlimited’s Remington 870 Conversion Kit

    After reporting my new find in a previous TFB article, I just got some actual trigger time with a Bullpup Unlimited Remington 870. In review, what’s neat about this product is that you take an existing Remington 870 pump shotgun, remove the stock and forearm, and then insert it into the kit.

    Loading the Bullpup Unlimited was easy. You’re using the Remington 870’s loading gate, except that now it’s located in the buttstock. Shooting it was as great as a stock 870, which I personally love. I found the action to be as smooth as a stock Remington 870 as well. There was minimal wiggle and jiggle and I felt like the Bullpup Unlimited was a solid enclosure.

    To highlight its strength, take a look at this video of it getting run over by a truck: (Go to the 3 minute, 44 second mark)

    The Bullpup Unlimited’s forearm has a nice ledge on the front to help keep your hand back away from the muzzle. By the numbers, the Bullpup Unlimited Remington 870 Conversion Kit retails for $359.00. B.Y.O. 870 and that could put you in the neighborhood of $700 for an excellent bullpup shotgun.
