Customer Questions & Answers for
Remington Remington Model 870 Express Super Mag Pump-Action Shotgun

The Remington® Model 870™ Pump-Action Shotgun is one of the most proven firearm's designs in history. The 870 Express® is a rugged, value-priced workhorse, making it one of the most useful tools that an outdoorsman can own. The Super Mag has a 3-1/2" chamber to handle heavy turkey and waterfowl loads that reach out to knock birds down at maximum shotgun range; it also functions with 2-3/4" and 3" shotgun shells, making it an extremely versatile firearm. At the heart of the ultra reliable 870 Remington is a receiver milled from a solid billet of steel for maximum strength, and twin action bars that prevent binding and twisting while cycling the action. 870 pump shotguns have great pointing characteristics—they come to the shooter's shoulder and acquire targets instinctively, and swing fluidly on fast flying birds. The Remington Model 870 Express Pump-Action Shotgun comes with a non-reflective finished hardwood stock and fore-end, and a matte black, bead-blasted finish on the receiver and barrel. The barrel has a vent rib and a bead sight, and uses standard Rem™ Choke screw-in choke tubes (comes with 1 modified tube). A premium vented recoil pad dampens recoil and helps shooter to stay on target for faster follow up shots. A myriad of aftermarket Remington 870 accessories enables owners to customize the 870 Express for specific purposes. Functions with 2-3/4" and 3" shotgun shells Twin actino bars prevent binding and twisting Vent rib and bead sight Uses standard Rem Choke screw-in choke tubes (comes with 1 modified tube) Premium vented recoil pad dampens recoil

The guy before me was right but he also forgot to say that you can put 3 1/2 inch shells as well as 2 3/4 and 3 inch shells.

answer 6
Yes. That's the standard length 12 gauge shell. This model chambers both 2 3/4 or 3" shells. Bass Pro also carries a great variety of hunting and home defense loads in both lengths.

TO CHANGE THE CHOKE TUBE:
WARNING! UNLOAD the firearm before changing choke tubes. Leave the action OPEN and the chamber
and magazine EMPTY.
1. Point the firearm in a safe direction.
2. Engage the safety mechanism. Make sure the RED BAND IS NOT SHOWING.
3. Place the choke tube wrench into the choke tube.
4. Turn the wrench counter-clockwise and remove the choke tube.
5. Select the desired choke tube and insert the tube into the barrel.
6. Tighten the choke tube snugly, but DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN.
7. With the action open and the chamber and magazine empty, check the choke tube occasionally to make sure
the tube has not loosened.
NOTE: NEVER fire the firearm without the choke tube installed.

If it is your first waterfowl gun, go with this (the Remington). I cannot say enough about the 870. I like the Mossberg as well, but you cannot go wrong with a Remington and it will be a great starting point to learn about shotguns.

Is a Chevy or Ford better? Same question. Some people swear by Remington, I happen to be a Mossberg fan. Each is going to last basically forever.

My favorite thing about Mossy's are the controls with the slide release behind the trigger guard instead of reaching in front and the safety being ambidextrous on top instead of a cross bar safety on the Remington.

You just have to handle them both and see which one talks to you.

No. I shoot lefty also. Even though I don't have much good to say about this gun, shooting it lefty is the least of its problems. Browning BPS is better though, if thats your concern.
