Is there a 209 primer conversion kit for this gun?
Question can never be answered as currently written.
By 870 I assume you mean the Model 870 shotgun? If so, there would be no purpose for that type of conversion. Shotshell primers are of the 209 size. The 209 "conversion" is done with muzzle loaders. The idea is to replace the muzzle loader nipple (that holds the cap) with a conversion unit that uses the 209 shotshell primer to get more positive ignition of the black powder.

Armurier Lavaltrie inc 111 St-Antoine Sud Lavaltre Quebec Canada J5T-1C1 450-586-1305 You can get the Remington 700 ML 209 conversion kit and replacement nipples at http://www.muzzleloadingbullets.com/remington_700ML_209_conversion_kit.html It also talks about being able to use the Variflame primer adapter with it.

I own a 2000 year Thunderhawk in stainless steel with a composite stock. I have given it a value of about $300 or so. I have a Westfield scope on it, and a 209 primer conversion kit installed ($45). I shoot .429 Speer bullets with Hornady .50 caliber sabot wads... I can make a smiley face at 50 yards and at 100 yards... watch out! Shawn Schofield
