I was wondering if anyone has built an AOW off of an 870?

I saw that JD offers stripped receivers as the starting point
http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=285711796

Has anyone built their own AOW?
How was the the build process?
How was the paper work/hoop jumping side of things?
How much money was spent?
If you had to do it over would you still have built the gun vs buying?

Thank you for your help

FYI.
Making an AOW = $200 tax stamp
Transfering an AOW = $5 tax stamp

It will always be less expensive to transfer an exisiting AOW than to build your own.


The Safety Harbor Firearms KEG-12 AOW is based off the Remington 870 reciever.

I was wondering about this. What else is entailed with the $200 AOW transfer fee? Does the gun have to go back into some kind of DROS? What are the steps involved?

Why not just buy one already made?

Give them a call. You will get an education along with excellent customer service. My 12.5" 870 is resting there awaiting ATF approval.

I just wanted to check, if you purchase a serbu from a dealer through a trust, is that the $5 stamp or the $200 dollar stamp?

remington refuses to sell 870s without a buttstock (there are rare exceptionsto leo armorers) to dealers or distributors

that is why its mostly mossbergs since they ship the persuader buttstockless with a pistol grip

That is not true at all. They just made a decent sized batch of them. They make a lot less than Mossberg but they do still make them.

Remington even makes factory AOW's.

I was thinking the same exact thing but I figured I would stay quiet

After looking at the costs it would indeed appear to NORMALLY be a better deal to buy vs build

but i stand correctedremington has been selling these recently. there was a time about a years ago when they stopped selling them, but that was only for a couple months or so.

i cant find them in the remington catalogthey aren't in the catalog, but that doesn't mean that they aren't available.

Just like they offer the 700P in a LH version, even though it isn't in the catalog.

You just have to know the model number to order it.

I used to know the model number of the version they sold a couple years ago, but I assume it has changed.

Remington Defense (LE/Gov/Mil sales) lists 870MCS AOWs in their catalog.
