870 Bullpup kit - anyone seen this

It looks like there are more and more bullpup stock kits entering the market all the time, well here’s one from Bullpup Unlimited I just stumbled upon for the popular Remington 870 shotgun. As with any typical bullpup kit, the overall lenght of the firearm is shortened with no loss of barrel lenght as the 870 action sits further back. The kit does add a little under a pound of weight to your shotgun but the weight is transfered further back, so I’d assume it would actually improve the balance of the shotgun. The Bullpup Unlimited kit uses an AR-style pistol grip and has plenty of rail space for grips, lights or lasers. At $359 it’s almost the cost of an actual 870, but if you’ve always wanted a bull pup shotgun then this might be a sweet project to play with.

The general complaint with bullpup stocks is with the triggers.
The long, indirect modification required apparently makes for poor triggers.

True, but on a shotgun a poor trigger is going to be less consequential. It might just be a worthwhile trade-off (YMMV).

Damn that thing is ugly...such a nice shotgun to ruin #-o

Why not spend a little more and pick up a KSG?

is it a drop in kit? i liked the kit for the saiga but dont like the fact the gun has to be altered to fit the kit.
Of all the things i've lost, I miss my mind the most.

if you are talking about the saiga bullpup, they made a model for unmodified rifles now

I think I would opt for the KSG. I have an 870 but the trigger bar for the kit,just sits against the trigger in the stock and does not actually lock into/onto it. I have not seen one close, but form the videos I have seen, it seems that there could be some wiggle room for the bar to dislodge from the trigger.

I'd pay the the same amount as just the stock kit for an 870 for a ksg. Keltec makes junk and every video I've seen of the ksg, it's miss feeding and failing to feed. I work with a kid who thinks the ksg is so awesome cuz of CAll of duty. Lol. I just told him yesterday, yeah I'd buy a ksg for 3 to 400. Lol.

watch the nutinfancy video where kyle from Keltec runs the course with it, if he can't make it run no one can..... [smilie=011.gif]

I think that video was a nail in the coffin, not the final one , but a big one if anyone was curious how they operate

I believe that's what I watched a long time ago. Not sure but it was when the ksg first came out?

I own one.. and I am very pleased with it. Had to do very slight dremel work on the 870's safety switch. Was bumping up against the kit rendering the trigger pack useless with 870's built in safety devices. Other than that, just remember to not wrench down on the fasteners too hard, you'll crush the polymer if you do. I put a fore end grip on mine to make the round chambering a little easier on my left wrist that has gone through a carpal tunnel surgery and a major bike wreck reconstruction. I also have nothing but good things to say about JJ and his customer service. Such a pleasant man to deal with.
