Good news, I will starting back with refinishing and rebuilds for civilians starting January 1, 2017.  

Here is what is coming.   I have to redo the web site before 12/31/16 as this format is no longer supported.   So, it may vanish for a few days but will return.   So if you look and don't see it check back in a few days.  

I now use the Mesa Tactical Polymer Shell holder because it has a dual retention instead of the single strip in the Aluminum version.   However, for LEO stock mounted shell holders the Aluminum one is the only one available.  Is now an online store with Duty Quality Slings I make right here.  It also has other items as well.   You will find Mesa Tactical Sling attachments for shotguns, Midwest Industry Sling plates for shotguns and several styles of AR sling mounts.   There is one flat rate shipping so if you purchase a sling check out the other items and have them shipped in the same shipping bag and save some money.

After looking at one of the models I offer be sure to check out the red Link "Options".  These are the items you can have on your weapon and you can start with any model and change the options to your need.  Then call or E-mail for an updated price based on your changes.    If there is a stock or accessory you want that I don't offer, I can build your weapon without stocks and you can install what you want.  Maybe you already have a stock set or barrel you want to use and this can be factored into the price of a new model that I build for you.

AI&P Tactical Custom Shotguns are being used by LEO's in 43 states including local, state and Federal Agencies.  They are also serving in American Territories and over seas. I also provide Armorer service, rebuild and refinish weapons for Police Departments. I am a Remington Factory Certified Law Enforcement Armorer, Certified on the Remington 870 Police Shotgun and Remington 11-87 Police Shotgun and only build on the Remington 870 and 11-87.  I carried a Remington 870 Shotgun during my career and know of no better shotgun made.  My weapons are true upgrades, not paint, bells and whistles that have nothing to do with performance.  I formed, trained and commanded HRT's for 6 years, and was a Team Member prior to that.  I am SWAT certified and I understand the application of a shotgun. 

If you are looking for a Duty Weapon, Home Defense Shotgun or a fighting shotgun then I have three very important bits of advice for you.  1. Keep it basic 2. Keep it basic 3. Keep it basic. A shotgun is a close quarters weapon that is designed for rapid deployment.  The more junk you put on it the less effective it becomes.  I will try to talk you into a simple basic weapon.  Once I have my say, I will shut up and put what you want on the weapon (within limits) The weapon you design is to protect you and yours not me and mine.  If you are comfortable with the weapon it will be more effective in your hands.

I have been told that some of you can not see the headers that contain my contact info when using your  mobile devices.   Here it is again for those having that issue.

You never have to repeat yourself when you have an 870 in your hands 'cause they heard you perfectly clear the first damn time.

I keep the hours of 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM Eastern Standard Time Seven days a week open for business so call between those times.  If I am in the shop I will not be able to answer so leave a message as I check e-mail and phone mail often and will call you back.   Please leave a best time to call you in the message and your time zone as I can return calls late in the evening if you need me to.

If you are too busy to talk to your customers, you won't be too busy very long"

Remington Tactical shotguns are the number one Shotgun being used in Law Enforcement.   There are more 870's in our gun safes then any other pump shotgun.  There are over 10,000,000 870's out there and most every one of them is still running like a swiss watch.  The ones that are not are because neglect or abuse by the owner.   You will seldom go to a range without seeing a 40 to 50+ year old 870 being fired.  

Most all the builders of Custom Tactical Shotguns build on Remington Shotguns.  The first question most people ask is how long does this take?  I do not build the weapon until payment comes in.   Much depends on how many weapons are on the build board.   A client called two nights ago and his Police Elite shipped the next day because he paid by CC and sent his FFL that same night.    Rebuild and refinishing services take longer.  Rebuilds take from 1 - 4 weeks and longer in the summer as fewer come in.   I will not parkerize one weapon and all depends on how many I have in so I can parkerize several once the tank is heated up.   If I need parkerized receivers to build on I would simply add your refinishing job in with them to speed things up and get your weapon back to you sooner.

LEO duty weapons and weapons for LE Agencies go to the head of the line.  If this is a problem then please shop somewhere else.  I am Remington Law Enforcement Armorer and that is my primary business.    Most often this involves small departments that can not afford to send an officer to armorers training and they have very few shotguns.  Or, their Armorer does not have the equipment to Parkerize so they may send all their weapons to me and I have to get them completed and back to duty.   I hope that anyone considering purchasing an AI&P Tactical or sending one for rebuild can appreciate this and would expect the same if this was your duty weapon. 

These Remington Tactical Shotguns are true custom weapons and I am the only person that will touch your weapon after it comes out of the bead blast cabinet.  Other who do this are larger operations and have become, simply, smaller production lines and several people will work on your weapon.  Try calling them and asking to speak to the person who built your weapon.
  Also, try calling them with a change to the build at 9pm, good luck with that one.

I am a straight forward and honest person to do business with.  I have over 3,200 feed backs ratings on Gun Broker under the user name aippi, every one of them an A+ and have never gotten less.  That speaks volumes about how I  do business.   If you have any question about doing business with me that should have answered it.

So  if you are looking for a Remington Tactical Shotgun for duty or Home Defense or even competition shooting or hunting check out my offerings.  You can purchase on of my models as it or you design by going to the build your weapon page of this web site and I build it to your specs.   I build it providing the build uses the items I use on my custom builds.  We can agree on other items but this could delay the build as these could be items I don't keep in stock.   There are also accessories and brands I will not put on an AI&P Tactical Shotgun and I will simply tell you this is not a weapon I will build.

I now offer AP Custom shell holders.  These fit on your belt and can carry from 4 to 8 shells depending on the model.  This is the perfect option for a home defense shotgun as you would not have a weapon mounted shell holder and can simply clip the AP on your belt if you have to go outside.  Also pefect for LE use in the event you have to conduct and entry or search for an armed suspect as this gives you an easy carry for ammo in addition to your weapon mounted shell holder.  You can see these at

I now accept credit card payment.  I use Payment Alliance which is endorsed by the NRA and NSSF.  The prices on this web site are "Cash Discount" Price for those of you that send a Check or Money Order.  Payments by Credit Card will be 3% higher then the "Cash Discount" price. 

Now on line a gun forum for those who want the best information and gun talk on the net.  Zero BS.  No membership fees.  A very different approach to forums by professionals in the business who are guns owners just like you and want to see the information about guns on the net be the correct information.  A forum where mutual respect for others members is mandatory.   No banners, no add space for sale, non revenue site just for the "Pure Love of Guns".

I am ever humbled by the many clients who have showed complete trust and confidence in me to build a weapon that they will count on to protect themselfs and their family.  The LEO's who carry my weapons are putting their life, the life of their fellow officers and the lives of the people they are sworn to protect into my hands.  I take this seriously and every weapon that comes out of my shop is 100% duty ready and one that I would trust my life to as well.

        "If you're going to a gun fight, take a shotgun.  If you can't take a shotgun, don't go."

I don't know who first said that but I bet he lived a long life.
