I was digging around in the safe looking for something and ended up taking out some shotguns. Decided to take a pic.

Here is my Rem 1100 Tactical in OD Green. I replaced the crappy pistol grip stock with a set of Real Tree from Remington. The hollow stock gave a brutal dose of "stock slap" no matter how hard I pressed my cheek into it, so I worked up a "spackle" of steel BB's and silicone caulk. Added enough weight to solve the problem.

Next is a JC Higgins Mod 20 (Made by High Standard) cut to 20".

Next is a JC Higgins Mod 20 cut to 18" and painted with Brownells Gun Kote in Earth Brown. The JC Higgins are forged steel, and one of the best pump guns ever made. Only 2 3/4" chambers, but they hold an extra round in the magazine (without extensions). If measured from the trigger to the end of the mag tube they are shorter than an 870, but hold one additional round.

Next is my old Remington 870 Police Magnum, 18". Started life blued but I parkerized it in 1990. This gun has just about exactly 100,000 rds through it and has never broken. Bought this when I turned 18 in 1984.

Last is a Maverick 88 which was the first gun I ever painted. A co-worker bought this during the '92 LA Riots and never fired it. Picked it up 7 or 8 years ago along with 6 boxes (25rd) of good SD ammo, and another 10 boxes of field loads. $50 for all of it as his wife wanted it out of the house.

That's quite the collection. I really like what you did with the hollow stock to add weight and reduce felt recoil. I like scatterguns but rarely see a group like that in one safe.

Thanks. I have a Rem M-11 with a 30" and a 20" barrel, too, but it was in another safe. I really like the M-11.

I see guys who are new to shotguns and just picked up their new "Home defense shotgun" trying them out at the range, all the time. They usually hate them (due to the hollow plastic stocks). They cannot believe what a difference some weight in the stock can make. The weight also improves the "pointability" by slowing down the swing inertia of the muzzle.

I saw those JC Higgins and decided to pull mine out and show them (JC Higgins that is)
The one with no blueing left on it is my first shotgun. Ive had it since I was 8 yrs old. It was kinda old lookin when I got it. I saw the other one in a gun shop about 5 yrs ago and got it. It looks like it has not been used much.
I'm taking my old one with me to a gun show. There is a guy there that has blued some other guns for me. I am going to leave it with him and get it reblued.

Call me old fashioned...I've tried every new shotgun innovation to date. Nothing feeds and loads faster than an A5 with the Browning self chambering action. I've shot this one since 1972 (28" Mod vent rib for field use)...Out of a left side harness pouch I can feed and shoot it like it has a 50 round mag. It never fails to fire...Ol Bessie

Ive had the shiny one for 45 yrs and it was very used when I got it. I did know who made them, but I forgot.
Edit: The blueing guy was not at the gun show.

Those are older than my "Ted Williams" Win 1200. Do you know who made them for Sears?

The JC Higgins Mod 20's were High Standard Flite Kings.
