Here is my workhorse. I wanted one of those scattergun technology border patrol 870s. With the 14in barrel it was going to cost about 900.00. And at that time they were still in Nashville and would not do the short barrel for individual officers only agencys. I soon discovered that I can purchase scatterguns parts from brownells and do the work myself. The parts from brownells were about 150.00. I purchased a new rem 870 express with 18in barrel for 230.00. I then took on the task of obtaining the tax stamp which took about 90 days and cost the standard 200.00 dollars. After approval of the application to make a firearm I went to work on it, mostly parts swapping, real easy. I sent it to alo-mar services for a moly coat finish which only cost 80.00. I highly recommend them. Total cost 660.00 including tax stamp. The other way would have cost about 1100.00 including tax stamp. Savings of 440.00.
