    I recently got the itch to do a sbs based off a Remington 870. Looking for others opinions or suggestions in either getting a full size 870 and either trying to find a short barrel or having one cut down versus getting a tac-14 and just adding a stock.

    Tac-14 eliminates any concern about sights.

    I have a 14” 12ga and a 12.5” 20ga. I had the barrel cut down on both. The 12ga is built on a full size and has a +1. The 20ga is built on a youth/compact with no extension. That makes the 20ga about 2.5” shorter overall.

    I have a 20 guage 870 youth we keep in the bedroom with a pistol grip. That's pretty much an SBS if I get the acronym correctly! How short is legal? My Judge is 2.5 " in .410

    Judge isn’t a shotgun. Neither is a firearm that was sold with just a pistol grip (no stock) and fires shotshells.

    Ya, I would like something that I could shoulder and those braces are nice but I like the feeling of most stocks better than the braces.

    What do you mean? Doesn't the Tac-14 have rudimentary sights? I would want some Ghost Rings or at the least rifle sights.

    My personal SBS is a 14" Benelli M-1 super 90. and I'm going to learn to shoot it some day.

    Meaning you’re not touching the sights when you add a stock. Not that’s it’s the perfect solution, but there’s no immediate need to replace or match sights.

    I lost the bead on both of mine when I chopped the barrels. If you have a rear sight on the receiver, you’d need to find a barrel with the right front sight or install a new one.

    Quick and easy is get a tac 14 and convert.

    Personally, even on sbs setups I like having chokes though, and you won't have that option, nor are most people likely to want it

    Also cheap. tacs are like $225, so plus $200 for stamp, and what, $50-70 for a stock. Done.

    I ended up scrapping the idea and just went with a KSG, for the deal on the ksg it was hard to justify the cost of going the sbs route

    Ksg is a solid option. Word to the wise though. If you go vert grip on pump arm. Buy a name brand one. Fair amount of one handed people who thought they could cheap out on those and had them break at the wrong time
