I had trouble getting the heat sheild on, its loose towards the back end of the gun. My main fear was that I was going to scratch the heck out of the barrel. Any advice on "correct" heat sheild placement?

+1. Your hand should never contact the barrel on a pump action unless you are playing call of duty and have to sling it on your back and pull out your AR to continue the fight.

To really answer your question I don't know I don't have one or looked at getting one ever...

Everyone is right, they are junk. I was trap shooting with the 870 and after going through 25 rounds I took it off because it moved up the barrel, so I threw it in the air and shot it. Best $25 shot I ever took. Pure junk. BTW, I have to get my gun reblued now.

Exactly what I was going to say. The rate of fire for shotguns (not the freak semi-auto where a guy runs a ton of rounds in a minute) isn't high enough to necessitate a heat shield.
heh, you've never been shooting with me. get a leather heat shield like an old Remington trench gun! They're pretty neat looking.

and I can't find a pic of one anywhere....

Heat Shield Trench Gun

Have a 97 Winchester Trench Gun. The Heat Shield is part of the Bayonet mount. It also have the little tabs at the rear to bend to tighten it. Have one on my 870 also and it doesn't move. They really are for looks unless you are in a major gun battle.:)
