I am considering a combat (tactical) shotgun build. I was wondering what problems others have run into while they did this. For instance lack of parts for a particular model or things to stay away from. Just looking for info before I buy the gun to start. I know for sure I am going to start with a Remington 870 or Mossberg 500 platform. I know tactical shotguns can be bought new, but I kind of want to do the build. Thanks for any info or suggestions.

Watch out for the newer Mossberg 500a they have a molded one part forearm... they are just like the ones they also use on the cheaper model maverick other than that I have heard of no other issues with any builds. I just built a 500a with top folding stock, flashlight, laser and uv light combo... Now looking back I wish I would have got a 870 you can do a lot more with them...

Got a trade for a mossberg 500 12ga I am in the build process now. I will post some pics when done. I have some decisions to make on what exactly I want to do, but I have at least got the platform to start.

Sweet if you go with a top folding stock they make a safety extension so its not as hard to turn the safety on and off. I will take some pics of mine I am still trying to decide what to do with the forend...
