Looks GREAT! Is that just made from the "normal" 870 Express wood stock set? I really like how it came out.

I should of and wish I did, but I made a plug for the hole in the grip and would have to drill a hole to get it out

Nicoman:

I have an AOW in progress, waiting on the tax stamp. Could I asked when you applied for your AOW?

The stock set looks beautiful, nice job. Wish you sold these pieces separately but I can see how labor intense it was.

Thanks for sharing it.

Update on mine
Well I got the ATI Magazine extender in.

The install wasn't as straight forward as I had expected but I figured it out. I had read a while back that the tabs that hold the cap at the end of the magazine tube had to be drilled out so I did that and then cleaned up the inside with my dremel tool. The spring had gotten bent up a little before I went to install it but I don't know if I did it or it came in the package that way.

pics.

I really like the fact that it can hold 8 rounds with one in the chamber.

You might be able to make a plug to cover the grips bolt hole if you can find a hardwood dowel the diameter of the hole. Cut a length long enough to entend into the grip about 3/8 to 1/2" and extend out far enough to clear the entire hole. Drill a small hole down the center of that short dowel and insert into the grip. Sand the dowel down to the contour of the grip. The smaller center hole allows you to insert a small hooked awl into the plug and pull it out when needed. Ideally, if you still have the remainder of the stock you would use a plug cutter of the correct size to cut the dowel. Then it would match the rest of the grip when staining.

^^^ nicoman, I am not able to take credit for the crafting of my birdshead grip. I did however, have the easy task of applying the finish. You have great woodworking ability.

I really like that idea. I wish I had kept the rest of my stock now. I also thought about doing the same thing but inserting a small screw in the bottom to hold it in or something like that. The hole doesn't bother me that much so I may end up leaving mine though.

"lets see your shotgun with the birdshead". Of the shotguns I have, this is my choice for in home defense.
