Default (Price Dropx3) WTS: 2-in-1 Remington 870 with Upgrades, Sac-SF, Will Ship

Make: Remington

Model: 870 Express, has fired exactly 51 shotshells###

Caliber: 12 gauge

Location: Elk Grove (Sacramento)

Price: $300 shotgun + $350 $200 upgrades = $650 $500 package deal (OR $400 package deal without the Weapon Light + Laser with Pressure Switch)

Will ship: Yes

**********

WHO:

Former active duty Marine turned surburban dad/Reservist.

WHAT:

Two-in-one shotgun package deal, with everything you need to build:
- a "tactical" Remington 870 Express with Magpul Forend, Insight M6 LED Weapon Light + Laser with Remote Pressure Switch, and 12" Length of Pull (LOP) Hogue Youth Stock
- a "classic" Remington 870 Express with factory Remington Laminate Wood Forend and Stock



To be clear, it's just one Remington 870 Express shotgun, but the package comes with the upgrades and accessories to build either of these configurations -- the former for home defense, the latter to make Joe Biden proud.

WHERE:

Elk Grove (Sacramento).

WHEN:

I'm generally free during weekday working hours (9am-4pm), but can make myself available on weeknights/weekends.

WHY:

I watched Terminator 2 back in 1991 and resolved to get a shotgun when I grew up. I did so while I was still on active duty in Arizona back in 2011, and have since lugged it around to New York and now California. However, as a suburban dad who now only shoots once in a blue moon, I can't justify keeping this locked under our bed on the offhand chance that Skynet takes over. I think it's time to let go of this one. My loss is your gain!

HOW:

I prefer a face to face (FTF) private party transfer (PPT) at the Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) of your choosing in the greater Sacramento area. However, I drive down to the Bay Area (Alameda) all the time for work, and can take either I-80 (passing through Davis, Vacaville, Vallejo, Richmond, etc), state routes (passing through Lodi, Antioch, Concord, etc), or I-5/580 (passing through Lodi, Stockton, Tracy, Livermore, Hayward). Thus, I can also meet you at an FFL in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, as well as any of the cities I'll pass through on my way from Sacramento.



However! Now that I've better acquainted myself with the laws and regulations concerning the shipping of firearms, I'm willing to ship this package as well. Your local FFL must be willing to accept shipment from a non-licensee, and I'll have to add a flat fee of $25 to cover costs if we go this route (as opposed to a FTF PPT).

**********

Here's how I came up with the price for this package.

$300 for the shotgun:

$350 $200 for the upgrades: (or $100 if you don't want the Weapon Light + Laser with Pressure Switch)

This is based off the prices I actually paid or the prices I see listed now online:
- $27.41 for the Magpul MOE Rem 870 Forend, Black (that's how much I paid in 2013)
- $6.60 for the Magpul MOE Picatinny Rail Fits MOE Handguards Polymer Black (that's how much I paid in 2014)

- $59.99 for the Remington Laminate Wood Forend (Remington #: F114503Ws) (I got this in a trade; that's how much MidwayUSA charges right now)
- $19.99 for the Remington Magazine Cap with Sling Swivel Stud Remington 870, 1100, 11-87 12, 16 Gauge Black (Remington #: 19462) (that's how much I paid in 2014)
- $5.89 for the Remington Magazine Spring Remington 870 Super Magnum, Express 12, 16, 20 Gauge and 1100 16, 20 Gauge (Remington #: F19479) (that's how much I paid in 2014)
- $5.89 for the Remington Magazine Spring Retainer Remington 870, 1100 12 Gauge Metal (Remington #: F91657) (that's how much I paid in 2014)
- $29.99 for the TacStar 6 Shot Sidesaddle Black (that's how much I paid in 2011)
- $79.99 for the Remington Laminate Wood Stock (Remington #: F114500W) (I got this in a trade; that's how much MidwayUSA charges right now)
- $14.99 for the Blackhawk! Mountain Sling (Blackhawk! #: 73SM00BK) (that's how much I paid in 2012)

Adding it all together, we have a $508.13 subtotal x 1/3 discount for being pre-owned/wear and tear = ~$350 $200 (or $100 if you don't want the Weapon Light + Laser with Pressure Switch).

$0 for miscellaneous items:

I'm a pack rat, much to my wife's chagrin. Here's the original receipt and a cut-out from the original cardboard box:
