Any one of the "Big Four" will work fine. (Remington, Winchester, Mossberg, Ithaca).

Because more parts and accessories are made for the Remington 870, and the 870 is the sturdiest of them all, you might want to go with it.

One good avenue, is to shop gun stores, gun shows, and pawn shops for a good, used Remington Wingmaster. The current Express models work well, but have a rougher finish inside and out, and need to have the magazine tube altered slightly before a magazine extension can be added.

Of course, you could just cut to the chase and buy a Remington 870 Police gun. These are as good as it gets right from the factory, and can be bought with most any accessory you could want.

Do you intend to build a rifled or smoothbore slug gun?
