Re: Question on Remington shot gun
I've got a 870 express. LOVE IT. the only problem I ever had with it was the finish. I lived on the coast, and took it out duck hunting in the bay, and didn't put anything on the barrel to protect it. That salt water mist rusted up my barrel pretty good. 0000 steel wool and some wd40 got rid of most of it. Still has some small pits though.
Functionally its never had a hickup. Used it duck hunting, and numerous rounds through it trap shooting.
I don't know what the difference is between the 870 and the 887 but, based on my experience with Rem I'd say get it.
It ain't broke it just lacks duct tape.
The nice thing about opinions is everybody has one.
