    Any suggestions on whereabouts in Portland to get my 870 Express receiver drilled and tapped for a picatinny rail? I've called Allison & Carey and they were hesitant even though I advised them Remington does this on their Express Tactical line for a few years now and they were only aware of the cantilever rail that is on the barrel. They said they'd still do it but at an estimate of $125. Reading online most smiths charge $20/hole for this but this is in other states.

    Any info would be greatly appreciated!

    I've actually looked into the mesa tactical saddle rails and at those price points I'd rather have a clean looking shotgun. If I've learned anything from my AR collection it's to just get what I want the first time around.
