remington 870

    The competition I attended in September with my SPAS12 semi auto 12 gauge: - Finished 23 of 26. This was a typical shotgun match finishing place for me. I got similar placings using my Remington 870. Basically, I was crap. Then I gets me an MKA 1919. The day after I got it, I went to the range...

    As I am sitting here thinking about what I should post and how it should be worded, what comes to mind is a jig-saw puzzle. My firearms are divided into 2 main categories, hunting and defense. Hunting includes remington model 700, remington 870, mossberg 590, marlin 336, FN/FAL, ruger 10/22...

    What do you think about the remington 870 for home defense ? I live in an urban area and there are a lot of robbery going around this area. Should i get a shotgun or a rifle? I have a smith & wesson .357 short barrel but i've heard at night multiple shots like if this were a combat zone. Any...

    As the topic says, i have a hard time deciding which gun to for. Either the Remington 870 or the Mossberg Pump Special Purpose 590 A1. Its definitely for hunting purpose and durability matters alot out of a survivalists perspectives. So what are your experiences and advices ? Which would be...

    I just got a Remington 870 Express a few weeks ago with the walnut finish (not my choice but its what they had) and the forend feels quite wobbly. Not like its attached too loose, but the lateral play (perpendicular to the barrel) seems like if I got too excited I could rip the entire forend...

    I purchased a Remington 870 Express (not Wingmaster) about 3 years ago. It's been fine. I have no complaints, but have been reading about the numerous problems that have been showing up on later models. I was planning on buying another 870 (redundancy) but now I'm having second thoughts...

    I just picked one of these up tonight. 12 gauge intended primarily for home defense. The owners manual that came with it is for all 870 series. I am trying to determine what would be a good hunting barrel for deer and small game/water fowl. I am still not sure if it's even possible to swap the...

    I own a Remington 870 Marine Magnum in the black XCS/Trinyte coating. I love it. I wanted to know if these Marine Magnums use the same internal components as the 870 Express, such as MIM (metal injection molding) parts: extractor, etc? I couldn't find any info anywhere on this topic. For an...

    Hello, I have not posted in a while, my daughter, who is 2 has been keeping me busy. I wanted to run some thoughts by everyone. I think the layout of the Mossberg is more intuitive than the Remington. The position of the safety and the fact that the shell lifter is out of the way during...

    Furniture is ok shape, came with what appears to be a 28" bird barrel, ok it's a Wingmaster-I'd like to get a Remington 18" Home Defense barrel for it, I saw online a Police 18" barrel for $139., I just want a blue steel Wingmaster barrel (assuming Remington makes that), any suggestions as to...

    I had a call from a guy wanting to scope his 870 to deer hunt with it some. I have used a few mounts that attach to the sides of the 870, but he has a side-saddle shell carrier like mine, which is one of the reasons asked me to check on it. Would the best choice be to have a gunsmith drill and...

    I recently bought a new 870 express super-mag. I only have put about 75 rounds through it (10 on dove hunting and the rest on clay targets). My last time out shooting, it started to jam, and couldn't figure out what was causing it. Thinking it was just new and needed to be shot a lot, i...

    Having both an 870 Home Defense Express and a Mossberg Persuader, which spare parts should we keep on hand, that being which parts are likely to wear out/rust out whatever. I'm not just starting just another what if thread, I'd really like to know what parts I should prepurchase to keep around...

    A local gun shop is having a sale on Remington 870 18" Barrel 7+1 shot for $359. They say it is a parkerized "police" model. However I could not find anything about a police model on the Remington website. If the model does exist, is it good or bad? How's the price? Is parkerized the best...

    And of course, why, if you would be so kind. I've narrowed the shotgun down to the Mossberg vs. the Remington, but I'm not sure which is better and why. And I like the idea o ghost ring sights, but I have no idea what advantage rifle sights could offer. I'd appreciate any input. -Jason

    I just purchased a new remington 870 tactical express. This gun comes with a "powder coat" that is supposed weatherproof the receiver and barrel. I had it two days, and noticed that there were bubbles appearing on the receiver under the coating. Poking at the bubble, it flaked right away and...

    I've got an older 870 Wingmaster built in 1954 and the slide will release without pushing the slide release button on the front of the trigger. Short of taking this gun to a gun smith, do any of you have any idea which parts should be replaced? I want to start with the action bar lock and the...
