Subject: Remington 870 - 12 gauge shotgun, 6 round extended magazine tube (10 total in tube), folding stock & pistol grip, light mount and 3 point harness
The subject of this topic lays out what I am shopping for.

The stores in my area (Ventura, Los Angeles, and Orange Counties) will outfit a Remington 870 shotgun I described above for $1200 on up to $1800.  I can purchase a stock Remington 870 for under $300, why can't I get all of the additions I listed in CA for $500 or $600?  I priced out all of the accessories and no way do they eclipse $200-$300.
 
Is there a "build a gun" feature on this website?  I'm new to this website, and I keep looking for the above exactly, or a dealer who will do the above exactly.  I'm really not sophisticated enough to navigate this site and do this myself.  Does anyone have a link to a website where I can get the above shotgun with all of the above accessories for a "cheaper than dirt" price?  Or a phone number to a dealer within a two hour drive of Ventura County, CA?
 
Many thanks!

Seanny,
 Unfortunately CTD is not selling guns to California at this time. If you can locate the basic 870 (I would suggest going with an Express model), we have the accessories to make it the gun you have described. Here is the gun I am talking about.
 
 
Stocks and extension tube:
 
 
 
 
I would also suggest a 2 point sling instead of the 3 point. A 3 point will run up the side of the gun right next to the forearm and may interfere with its operation in an emergency. Here are a couple of mounts and slings.

Good luck!

Thank you for your prompt response!  I'm bummed that you don't sell to CA, but being up on current events - I can take a wild stab in the dark and say the reason is because of California's open hostility to private firearm ownership.
 
Whoops, a two point sling would be far superior.  Thanks! 
 
How much should it cost to properly assemble a shotgun once I get all of the accessories?

Well, it is simply parts swapping so it shouldn't cost too much. I hate to throw a number out because each gunsmith will be different. I don't think I'd charge more than $50.
