Bullpup Unlimited Remington 870 Kit

 

 

 

” The bullpup concept has recently found its way to the shotgun platform as well. There are several offerings on the market now including the Kel-Tec KSG, the Utas UTS-15 and the SRM Arms line of shotguns. While all of those guns bring new and interesting concepts to the field, it seems they all lack one thing that many shotguns over the years have boasted; indestructible reliability.

Platforms such as the Remington 870 and the Mossberg 500 have been around a very long time, and for good reason. They are practically indestructible when it comes to reliability. As appealing as those other new bullpup shotguns are in concept, I have not heard of a single one of them favorably compared to an 870 when talking about reliability.  Also, they are far from inexpensive. The least expensive of that group, in terms of list price, is the KSG, which now lists for $990 (although finding one available for under $2000 can prove challenging). Compare that to the price of a base Remington 870 (I just bought a brand new 870 Express 7-round for $365) and you have a TON money left over to dump into upgrades.  That said, you still have to deal with a full length shotgun, or do you?”

 

 

 

 

” Enter the Bullpup Unlimited, Inc. bullpup conversion kit for the Remington 870 pump shotgun. The kit is available directly from Bullpup Unlimited and is also sold by several other dealers. The kit sells for $359 and it includes everything you need, except the actual Remington 870. Per the instructions, it will work with all right hand ejection 870’s so long as they do not have a vent-rib barrel. While conceivably, you could install a shorter or longer barreled gun into the kit, it is designed around an 18” barrel, and my 18.5″ barrel protrudes only about 5/8” beyond the end of the chassis.”
