Excellent choice. The Wilson ghost ring sights are way better than the ones Remington used to include, and this shotgun has everything you need and nothing you don't. Ghost rings are almost as fast as electronics (and, of course, lighter and more compact.)

The only thing I don't like is the pistol grip stock, but that's just me.

Yeah... $2100+ is a bit steep.... That's why I bought mine in the states..
'Took six weeks for the paperwork, but it only cost me about $1500 Cdn. all in.
Well worth it though...

No.
Why would I pay $200 and wait six months when I can do it myself for free in six weeks...?

That easy eh?

I assumed the hard part would be finding an FFL that was willing to hold it and go through the paperwork.

No, not really.
The FFL I deal with does charge a fee of $50 to export, but I'm still ahead given the higher Canadian retail price on the firearms I've bought.
That and my US FFL actaully has stock and if he doesn't he can get what you want in very short order... a few days as opposed to weeks/months from a Canadian dealer... My buddy was looking to buy a Para-Ord. pistol a while back.. the friggin' thing is made in Scarborough, but no Canadain dealer had or could get the model he wanted. A couple phone calls and a fax or two and he had the gun he wanted in hand in four days. 'Coulda had it sooner, but the CFC had to play catch up with their system 'cause the gun was in the FFL's shop ready to be exported before the CFC had updated their records that the thing had been exported out of Canada... :mrgreen: I guess all Para's stuff goes from Scarborough to their dist. centre in Miami Fla.
I've bought several firearms in the US and have never had any problems with importing them myself.

For those on a budget - Here's a cheaper version that one could build. Buy an older used 870 Express Magnum, use the frame and slide off that, change the stock and forend, buy a 181/4" imp. cly. barrel. add on a mag extender, then add on the Wilson sights and sling swivels etc..

Used Remington 870 Express - approx $200
Wilson Buttstock - $79
Wilson Surefire forend - $279 ( a cheaper quade accessory rail for $80 or standard black forend $29.99)
Wislon Track-Lock 2 Ghost ring set - $115
Wilson tactical mag extension - $45
Side mounted Shell carrier - $60
Wislon Sling swivels - $15
Sling - $12.95
18" 870 Barrel - $180 from Brownell's

$737 - $986 depending on forend style


You could also have a gunsmith cut down the barrel to 18" and then have the sights mounted for cheaper than buying a new barrel. I don't see why this couldn't be a viable option for those on a budget. I imagine those 12 gauge buckshots will still hit the targets with the same accuracy and punch for half the cost of a Remington 870P MAX.

I also found a web dealer selling Wilson 870's of this configuration or similar between $939 - $1265 range.
