After working with this mini battle axe for a while...even in the frigging snow (which I hate), I came up with a few "this is how we make this better" points for the staff. Remember...Possibilities are a lot more interesting than limitations!



We established a dealership with Shockwave technologies and got a viking's share of the grips shipped to us. We will be referring to this grip here as the Stakeout Grip. It is up for sale at the store right now for $24.50 - This is the ONLY GRIP MADE that allows the Non-NFA use of a 14" barrel on a PGO "other".

Our Stakeout Package will come with a hand strap. In my work I have found this to be an essential aspect of the weapon and in essence takes the place of the shoulder stock in controlling the weapon. Oh...and we will be using a magpul handguard textured by our staff.


Loading port and ejection ports opened up and general dehorning of the exterior of the weapon before refinishing in Grey ION Bond (same color as our Grey Slides).

And while I thing that barrel treatments are not relevant today since you can select the effects out of the muzzle via ammunition selection, we did work up a barrel porting process which makes this battle axe fast and very controllable.

Cool. Thoughts as to texture on the grip too?

Oh yes...we will do that on our Stakeout packages.

"Cruiser safe" works OK, but once rounds are out, how do you feel about large/extended safeties?

We will have an enlarged safety, lighter (not too light) trigger and milled steel extractor.

I dig it.

Looking good. Excited to see the final product.

Very cool!
Looking forward to getting some range time with one.

"we did work up a barrel porting process which makes this battle axe fast and very controllable."
I would like to learn more about the barrel porting.

Steel safety I presume. I know Remington has left hand safeties, but do they have reversible safeties?

I know I remembered something about being able to simply reverse the safety, so I searched it. My two minute search revealed that after either 1987 or 1992 they changed the trigger assembly and this is no longer possible. Apparently there are safeties made that will work, since I'm not a lefty I didn't look at any of these products. Good luck.

An SI Tribal Object. The word "Nightstick" (Knight's Stick?) also (yup, really!) flashed brightly in my well-seasoned brain-housing group.

Looking more and more like the old Chicago "Whippets", certain detectives carried, will have to break out the old shoulder rig and see if it will work with the 870 frame.
