870 - no need to say anymore.

The Remington 870 is the standard that all pump shotguns are measured by. There is no finer weapon of this type, in design, function, or reliability. Outstanding engineering that has stood the test of time. The purely functional design is complimented by the simplicity of the construction make it the most reliable shotgun ever. NUFF SAID!

Still the most classy looking shotgun around

The Remington 870 is the standard that all pump shotguns are measured by.
There is no finer weapon of this type, in design, function, or reliability. Outstanding engineering that has stood the test of time. The purely functional design is complimented by the simplicity and elegance of the construction, that make it the most reliable shotgun ever. The simplicity also makes it so easy to maintain. Proper maintanece is all inportant, but if its easier to maintain, you will probably do it as often as you should. Maybe more.
The Finest Pump Shotgun, bar none.
If you want a gun you can stake your life on, this is the one I would choose. Isnt that the point anyway?

great gun

Inexpensive, simple, reliable. I own 2; one w/extended mag and Surefire for home defense, another with 2 barrels: a 26" vented modified choke for birds, and a 20" rifled barrel for deer, bear, etc. VERY accurate to 75 yards.

While in the Coast Guard is was my weapon of choice for boarding vessels.
I have one for home defense with an 18" barrel.
It's never failed once.

Truly the shotgun of choice.

I keep 00 in it for home defense but to note, my children's rooms are upstairs and my bedroom downstairs. So over penetration is not a big concern. If all rooms were on a single floor I'd probably use bird shot as most shotgun home encounters are within 25 ft. Doesn't really matter much what your shooting out of a 12 ga at that range.

I only gave it a rating of 8 since it said it was a 28 gauge. But if it was a 12 gauge I would definetly have to give it a 10!

870xpress mag.

It was a great gun, heavy and kicked like a mule. Shot sum rem. shells and it blew out the ejector pin. Rem fixed it some what but didn't help much. They should have replaced it.
