Nothing special here. Pretty basic really for now. I don't even have a muzzle device on it!

The grip is cut down from a wooden VEPR rifle stock. It has a Burris FastFire2 on it & a surplus Russian sling. The 8rd steel mag is from csspecs.
How do like the Burris Fast Fire2?

I like the FF2, but wish I would've gotten a FF3 with a bigger dot. I got it to put on a pistol that I haven't gotten around to swapping the rear sights on yet..

To All,

Imo, a person could do FAR worse than a Turkish-made pump riot-gun by ASI. = I bought mine "more or less by  accident" at a San Antonio gun-show last year, while looking for a used Model 870 Remington (or something similar) for a "house defense gun".

A fellow quietly said to me, while I was looking at a "pretty junky looking" 870 that, "a fellow on the back row has NEW shotguns for the same price", so I walked back to the back & ended up buying a ASI 12-gauge pump for 200.oo OTD.

It's a NICE gun for the few dollars & is at least equal in overall quality to a Mossberg or one of the new Model 870 shotguns.
(I'm NOT impressed with the new Remington products. = My old 870 pump-gun from the 1980s was better in every way.)

My "cheap little gun" is NICE, well-machined, has a hard industrial chromed bore & shoots every time W/O problems, with any 12 gauge load that I've tried.

just my OPINION, satx

If your 870 is from the 80' most  likely it is a wing master, rather than an express that most sold in the $250  - $350 range now are.  Much better quality in the wingmaster, but express is still very good gun.  Carried this gun for 40 years.  NEVER A failure to fire.   Reason that the military still uses the 870!   I have 870's in 16 and 12, from 1960's until now.  Still love my 1100 for field shoots, but 870 wing master is totally reliable.  With an 18" barrel, best home defense firearm you can own, in my somewhat humble view.  (note I also have mossberg pumps and stevens doubles that work fine as well.  Keep your 870, add the short barrel and load up OO buck and you are best you can be.)  TEXKAN

I purchased a few guns from an estate
1 is bridge guns co double barrel it has some marks or symbols under the barrels on the receiver with the serial # 51xx. Between the barrels there is a name laminated figure Belgium. Does anybody know anything about this gun? I have looked at different forums looking up bridge guns co that it may have been made by crescent but it also said that if it had trade marks it could be made in Europe.

TEXKAN,

YEP. The current 870 is a Wingmaster that belonged to my late Uncle. - I've never/won't cut it down, as it's a 28 inch with VR & a family heirloom.

Otoh, it's too long & ungainly for easy use as a "truck gun", thus the Turkish pump-gun.

yours, satx
