Once again I am reminded that I know squat about long guns.

As you might know I have a NEF pardner pump 12 ga on the way and my intentions are to make it a tactical HD shotgun (not that it wont be effective in the stock configuration)

I found myself looking for a breacher choke and realised that I have no idea what kind of choke tubes the NEF takes. I have read that you can use remington acessories on it but I am not sure if this applies to the choke tubes as well. Anyone know about this?

Moving on to the Ideas for making my SG tacti-cool.
I plan to add:
reciever mounted shell holder
extended mag tube (+2) as long as it stays shorter than the barrel
breacher improved cylinder choke (once I find out which type to get)
heat shield
barrel (magazine) mounted light
trijicon ghost ring sights

I really dont want to change the stocks on it because I dont like pistol grips and I dont like the looks of the adjustable stocks (they have pistol grips too)

This is going to be a slow "one at a time" process but I will most definantly post pics during progress

Thoughts? Suggestions? I need input because I have no clue what I'm doing :)

Glad I could help. As for the breacher I'm not sure which ones will fit. So I guess I was actually no help at all.

btw. you can customize an 870 express to be anything you want it to be.

you can find them reasonably priced new.

even cheaper used.

I didn't like the breacher choke. I gave it away and bought an extended full choke. Also the choke needs to match your ammo. Forhome defense i recommend high brass #6 shot. Very effective at "end of the hallway" range but less penetration to worry about. A good tight choke might be better.

Either Tacstar or Mesa Tactical. They have them in 4 and 6 shell capacity.

You are going to have to change the magazine spring to accommodate the longer length and possibly a clamp to keep the extension more stable.

Breacher chokes are a gimmick to the "tacticool" crowd and mall ninjas.
There are specialty rounds used for breaching so that people on the other side aren't hit.
Figure out whale what shotgun load you plan to use for self-defense and go from there.
But if your heart is set on the breacher's tactical look, buy it.

They are useful if you are putting huge amounts of round through your shotgun at one time. For HD, they are just paper weights IMO.

Good to know what your target is. A barrel clamp for lights or a light integrated into the fore-grip are good options.

After you buy the sights you want, have a gunsmith apply this modification.
I've seen people use super-glue to attach the sights and have them easily knocked off.

the breecher choke was kind of for the tacticool effect since I am not fond of glocks or ARs I have to get my mall ninja fix somehow. On the other hand, I learned that the shotgun has a fixed choke so I wont be needing a tube for it.

i will most likely let a smith install the sights...unless I get a wild hair (Im sure I would regret that though)

Actually the breacher tube is for proper spacing for you shot....But it's still a gimmick.. How many of us will be breaching doors in the near future...lol

added a sling (Blackhawk) and a light mount (Bryant Armory) I currently only have a maglight mounted on it and I intend to keep a maglight on it, I'm just going to get a LED/pressure switch conversion kit for it. I'm kind of loyal to maglight since my first flashlight as a kid was a maglight and I remember lurking around the inside of the Ole Miss Stadium with it as a kid...sort of nostalgia/brand loyalty i guess

Just have a sidesaddle shell holder and the ghost ring sights to go...wonder if I can "find" a Bryant Armory shellholder?
