got an opportunity to buy a Remington 870 synthetic express, wht does it mean on the gun it says "3.5 only with super mag reciever...200$ for da gun..

I have reasons for the things I do, just don't expect them to be reasonable

Rem 870

Some where on that barrel it will tell you the shotgun "cartridge length".
I'm betting that 870 "is not" supposed to fire 3.5" shells.

I should have included this. The Rem 877 handles 2 3/4, 3 & 3 1/2" shells interchangeably.

Me thinks so. I would buy one but mine isn't worn out. A word of caution; do not, I repeat do not, put Deet,( or any anti-bug stuff w/ a hi content of Deet) on your hands or etc., then handle the 870. That stuff will peel the finish off the wood and the metal starts rusting.That however should not effect that synthetic stock. Thats the only negative w/ the 870. Remington listened to us bitching about it, I guess. Check the difference in pricing vs the 877 which I will get. The 877 is wrapped in some kind of polymer material and it has that additional 3 1/2" shell capability which is great for Geese.
