Remington 870

Remington 870 Shotgun The Remington 870 has earned legendary status among gun aficionados. This is the perfect hunting gun, and there’s no question about that. The Remington 870 is arguably the very best pump-action shotgun that money can buy. I bet your dad or your grandpa has one in his collection. You can compare the Mossberg 500 and any other pump-action shotgun on the market with the Remington 870, and it is most likely going to come out on top. Although the Remington 870 has been around since the 1950s, it is still considered in style today. About five different versions of the 870 have been released over the years. The dimensions of the Remington 870 are 46.5 inches by 26 inches. The shotgun has an 18-inch barrel. Some versions have a 20-inch barrel. Although it looks massive, the 870 weighs just over 7 pounds, so you can carry it around conveniently. The Remington is not only used by hunters but also by law enforcement officers across the world. Some people also use this shotgun for home defense. The stock and foregrip of the classic Remington 870 are made of beautiful hardwood, but there are some versions with plastic stock and foregrip. As indicated above, this is a chambered, 12 gauge shotgun. There is also a 20 gauge version. The standard Remington magazine can hold 4+1. There is a magazine extension available for this shotgun, which increases its capacity to 6+1. The newest version of this shotgun, the Remington 870 DM, has a detachable box magazine. This will be the very first shotgun with a removable magazine. The magazine can hold up to 6 rounds. The Remington 870 is designed for 3-inch shells. Some versions of the 870 work with 2.75-inch and 3.5-inch shells. The comb is large enough to rest your cheek on it while you aim. This goes a long way to improve your precision. Some versions of the 870 have a single bead sight. One of the reasons we love the Remington 870 is its excellent design. When you have this shotgun in your hand, you can tell that this is a high-quality weapon. It is easy to hold in a grip, and the action is super smooth. It surprisingly doesn’t have a huge kick. One of the reasons for this is that the butt pad absorbs some of the shock. The Remington 870 comes with a crossbar safety, a trigger guard, and a safety switch. It is easy to take the Remington 870 apart when you want to clean it. All the parts come together easily. The gun tends to work just fine, even if it is not cleaned frequently. However, it is always advisable to maintain your firearms by cleaning and oiling them time-to-time. There are various accessories for the Remington that can improve your accuracy and general experience with this shotgun. The Remington 870 shotgun is a weapon that has stood the test of time; this shotgun is a key part of America's gun history. It is not only durable, but is also very affordable, feels comfortable to use, and is reliable.
