POTD: Mossberg 590A1 12 Gauge Shotgun

Photo Of The Day – The shotgun is probably the most violent firearm of them all. But depending on the ammunition it can also be non-lethal, which is the theme in these pictures. Above we see a U.S. Marine as he fires a Mossberg 590A1 12-gauge shotgun during a non-lethal weapons training exercise, in January 2020.

870 Overhaul – Is It Worth Rebuilding A Remington 870?

A few months back, I wrote an article on finding a Remington 870 police trade-in shotgun for right around $50. What I didn’t tell you was that I went back and bought a second 870 for the same price once the article was released. Both shotguns had some degree of surface rust and had seen better days.

So after taking a look at everything, I decided to sink a little money into them and try to bring one of the tired 870’s back to life. Let’s jump into my journey rebuilding a Remington 870.

Pawn Shop Finds – The Poor Man's KSG… An 870 Bullpup

One of my favorite things about writing for TFB is being able to write about the crazy things I find in the wild. Last week I was running around the various shops in western Michigan and came across this bullpup 870 conversion. The guy behind the counter was an extremely grumpy old-timer who went on about MUH 1911 and how polymer guns are Chinese junk. I could write an entire article on the employee but the shotgun was something I was rather interested in checking out.
