Basic DSG-12-Rem. 870 Conversion


SKU: Basic DSG-12 Rem. 870 conversion Category:

The “DSG”-12 (Designated Slug Gun) designation refers to the fact that TarHunt fits a “non-removable” (except by a gunsmith) custom fit, TarHunt/Shaw rifled slug barrel to your Remington 870 receiver. This rifled barrel is threaded in, using a one-to-one fit, with the receiver for the best possible accuracy. The rifled barrel has a matte black metal finish, 23 inches long, 1-28 twist rate and includes the muzzle brake as standard.

Scope bases are included, Scope and scope rings are not.

To convert the Remington 870 to a DSG-12, TarHunt will first measure the barrel hole in the front end of the receiver. Custom fit a block of steel into that receiver. We then fit, thread and screw in a new 1-28 twist rate,  TarHunt/E.R. Shaw rifled barrel into that steel block. We then drill and tap the top of the receiver and install a custom made set of TarHunt scope bases (with # 8 screws) that are designed for the top of an 870 receiver. This solidly mounts the scope in the proper position, directly above the bore, assuring the best possible accuracy.

The DSG-12 older Wingmaster conversions will have a 2-3/4″ chamber. All DSG-12 Express Mag and the DSG-12 Wingmaster Mag will have 3″ chambers. Left hand conversions are available.

We CAN NOT do a DSG Conversion on any of the 20 gauge 870 models or any model of auto-loaders into a fixed barrel conversion at this time.

Any privately owner firearm send to TarHunt for a conversion or repairs must be shipped with a copy of the owners DRIVER license of your state OR firearm ownership card if one is required by the state you live in. When completed, the firearms must be returned directly to the address on the original accompany ID.  Any change of ownership of this weapon must be transferred thru a current FFL holder.          Specifications & Pricing can change without prior notice.
