1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    I have not bought one of them cool bore guages yet.

    I will check around and see if I can get it done for free somewhere.

    If it has not been altered, this gun has some of the best barrels that Remington every made.

    Exactly what Barry said!

    Measurements would be good information to the seller and potential buyers.

    Kenny, Thanks for checking to see if you can get measurements.

    At some point I need to get one of them instruments from the "unloader" on this form too. The cheap one I have had gotten out of whack and cannot be trusted any more.

    Over the years I have been a Remington 870 collector. I wish I had the money to purchase this 870 as I was also born in 1951. Trust me when I say, this gun is a smoke pole. It's a beautiful gun.

    Is that wood original to the 1951 TC?? I ask because I have a TB circa 1950 that has a flat topped diamond. Thank You: Ross Puls

    I have been told by several members on TrapShooters that the wood is correct for the gun.


    870 TB's have pressed checkering while 870 TC's have the cut checkering.

    The gun is located in Michigan.

    Thanks, Kenny Uhlbeck

    Donnie870: I also have a couple old circa 1950 870s 1 TB (pristine) & 1 field grade with the double diamond-- hand cut--flat top checkering. the bbl. locking locking lug is NOT pinned into the breach bolt as the later ones are, also the shoulder where the bbl. comes out of the receiver is almost square not tapered as newer ones. bbls. & receiver are matched serial #s. As you said, they are very slick but still not as smooth or quiet as my M 31 TCs. I still shoot my 31, most of the time, but if I would ever have to go to a push trigger instead of a pull I do have a release for the 870s, haven't been able to find a release for a 31 yet. I too have tried Rem. for info & they couldn't help me, in fact they said they never made any that way so next year I'm going to take them to the Grand & see what Rem. has to say about them. If you get any info please share it with me & I;ll do the same. Thank You-- Ross Puls

    I have this gun's twin but someone put a aftermarket stock with cheek piece on mine before I purchased it.
    I have been looking for a factory TC buttstock since but no luck.
    It is funny how old 870's of this vintage get somewhat discolored breechbolts.

    And these barrels are VERY good.

    Shootlow. That is a TC barrel. The TB barrels had all kinds of line production stamps on them. This barrel has none. Not to say that the TB barrels were bad, just that the TC barrels of that era were better.

    Donnie 870,

    The figures in your previous post may be off a little bit, the barell measurements.



    .292 is not even 1/3 of an inch.

    Maybe you missed a 7 somewhere in the numbers.

    Maybe a typing error?

    Donnie 870,

    The 870 TC that was pictured in this thread has the tapered rib.
