    Your grand-children's children will just love it... as it will still be around and running. There's a reason that the Remington 870 is the longest and highest volume continuously produced shotgun in history...

    I have a 870, built in the 70's, handed down from my dad, with a +4 tube on it and a 18" cyl choke barrel. Yes, the tube sticks out 3-4" past the barrel, but it ain't a beauty contest... It shoots anything you feed it. It has in duck blinds, tree stands, in the ice, and snow, and rain, and mud...

    Buy an 870. Take care of it. Pass it down to YOUR kids, almost 40 years from now... It'll be just as nice then.

    Excellent post. For a couple reasons.

    1. The 870 is the best selling pump shotgun, hands down.

    2. No, it's not a beauty contest. Nor should it be.

    3. You'll get every nickels worth of investment.

    Here's a scenario:

    It's a total blackout, no electricity for day's on end. The home invaders are starting to get through the neighbor hoods. You find and old 870 or Moss in your grand dads closet. It doesn't have a light, laser, heat shield, fancy folding stock, pistol grip, Trijicon sights, rail system, foregrip not even a set of chokes.

    You going to let it lye there or are you going to make that hardware work for ya ?

    Same goes for my Winchester or my Mossberg or my Beretta .... None of them have a light, laser, heat shield, folding stock, pistol grip Trijicon sights or rail system. They do have foregrips (not vertical) on them, but then so does my dad's 870 and it was made in the 50's. My Beretta does have several chokes.

    Anyway, all that to say the 870 is a fine shotgun but there are other fine shotguns out there. My Mossberg 930 SPX is a fine, purpose-built weapon. So, is my Beretta 686. Why get wrapped around the axle of one shotgun being the be-all, end-all?

    All good guns. As I have said if I were going with a pump I prefer the Mossberg 590 but I would not have a problem using any of them. As the saying goes. Any gun will do if you will (do)

    Six of one, half a dozen of the other. 870, 500, 590, M1, M2, Nova, SuperNova, it doesn't much matter which one. Just have one.

    I was in the market for an 870 with a short barrel and a stock with pistol grip when I found a Benelli SuperNova in the price range I was considering. I didn't turn it down just to find an 870 later.

    I have a 870 Wingmaster, 12 gauge. I had the barrel shortened to 18 1/2 and plan on getting a magazine extender to bring it out to the end of the barrel.
    It was built in 1953, and works as good now as the day it was made. It was given to me by my father.
    Think I'll stick to the tried and true.

    Geez, I feel like a weinie compaired to you guys. All I have are a couple of single-shot 12 gauges! Nice pics on the gun though. Wish I had it and you had a feather up your butt, we both would be tickled! Just kidding.

    There's a very simple reason why 870's have been carried in so many patrol cars for so many years: They work when you need them to.

    I had the occasion to work on a Nova the other day, and for an inexpensive shotgun I thought it was well built.
