Default Shotgun foregrips?

I've been looking at a few Remington 870's lately and think I'd like to add a vertical foregrip after purchase.
Any recommendations for a sturdy, all-weather vertical foregrip that is short enough to clear a side-saddle? Thanks.

It would be impossible to make a recommendation on the information you have provided. The Remington 870 is the second most popular shotgun I know of (next to the Mossberg 500) and has an endless supply of after market supplies. Do you want a long or short grip, with finger groves or straight, are your hands large or small, do you want a light, laser or both or do you want the grip to unscrew to put in survival products. How about a removable grip?

Personally I would see if Tapco had anything I like. They have a good product. I would check them then sportsmans guide, cheaper than dirt and centerfiresystems in Kentucky.

There are a few aftermarket products that crack in sunlight or cold so pick something and post it here and one of us will tell you if we have had positive or negative experiences with the product.

I have changed out foregrips on a few pump shotguns. I advise you to get a spanner-wrench, or make an improvised one, that fits properly, for this operation, because there is a threaded metal ring with two notches that holds the foregrip down. Don't risk scratching the gun, or chewing up the metal -make sure you have the right tools.

Kurt Saxon made a steel one for his 11 shot – shotgun. In my opinion the cost overrides the function of buying one. Most of the ones I like cost $60 or more. I can buy a Mossberg for $185 (saw them on sale for $165) at Wal-Mart.

I realize they're popular but I've found good accessories not that easy to find.
I was thinking of something along the lines of this:

Nice choice, removable and with a rail. I don't like how the fore grip mounts to the gun because it has a 2 piece mount. However centerfire sells a really nice AR fore grip that will mount in it's place (should you break it during rapid fire) for under $15. The mounting part is a one piece and tightens up with a bottom screw that can be tightened by hand.

If you are going to do that here is some advice I have actually used with excellent results. You can buy the rail and mount them on the existing grip of your shotgun then you have a larger variety of fore grips to choose from as any of them will fit. The rail should be no more than $15 shipped. There are 3 screws that hold it on.

Speaking from personal experience and personal preference, I've tried several vertical shotgun foregrips and none have ever felt as 'right' as a standard pump foregrip.

Your mileage may vary, of course.

I'd like to try this. Know anyplace I can get a plain, basic picatinny rail for this purpose? Thanks.

The local gun shops sell them here for $12 each both rails and grips. If you want to order online the price should be the same or get a gun shop to order one. They are very common.

The good thing about it is you can add other things if you want and if you don't like it you can undo it and fill the holes with plastic filler. Also you won't have a specialized piece of equipment lying around you can use the rail and grips on another gun.

This is stronger than the one you mentioned. The rail will look flimsy but I have used them and they are very strong. The fore grip on your shotgun is much stronger as well. You may have to do a slight bit of sanding or something if the screw on your rail (it is very flat) rubs the magazine tube of your gun but the entire process shouldn't take more than 30 minutes with added work.

They sell metal long scope rails that are the same size as a plastic rail for your gun at Wal-Mart that you can modify to do the same thing.

If you buy a grip to go on your rail make sure it is a solid piece instead of a 2 piece like the one you listed because they are much stronger. The solid piece has a knob that tightness at the bottom instead of 2 small screws on the side. The odd thing I have found is the stronger ones are the cheapest.



If you look closely at the pic in the link you posted all they did was take a very cheap stock and drill 3 holes in it to accommodate a rail. Why pay them what you can do yourself and have better quality?
