A shotgun is one of the most common firearms there is and is in more homes then virtually any other weapon. The Remington 870 is possibly the most popular shotgun on the market and is available in various configurations, colors and has many aftermarket parts available.
Personally, I own Remington and Mossberg shotguns and love both. However, I grew up shooting the Remington and have many great memories shooting trap and hunting.
The Remington 870 has been around since the 1950’s and has been used by police and the military ever since.
Modern manufacturing is not as refined as it use to be but spending a little time fine tuning a newer shotgun can be a lot of fun and be rewarding once it is finished.
