    The fit and finish on this remington 870 is perfect and exactly what I expected, it's a synthetic black shotgun made for home defense, not a wingmaster. It's a tool that does it's job extremely well, just can't beat a sc...attergun for close work. Mine has performed flawlessly after 50 rounds and seems to run better the more it's shot......imagine that. The gun has good balance and handles very well, the action is smooth as with any 870. I swapped out the recoil pad for a limbsaver airtech to save what's left of my shoulder from the kick of 00 buckshot....works well. All in all this is a very nice shotgun, doesn't feel cheap, feels like a quality firearm you could depend on if you had too, it's a Remington 870 for gods sake, I wouldn't expect any less. I would definitely recommend this shotgun to anyone looking for this type of firearm.....good stuff. more

    They sent me the wrong gun!
    They sent me a different gun then what was pictured on the website. When you order it I suggest you order it to the store and when you pick it up ask if you can see it before buying it. make sure it is what you want. If ...it is not the model pictured you will not be able to change barrels on it. After i found out i could not change barrels on it i asked them for a refund and they gave me one. the costumer service was great just a mess up on the website. more

    Don't Count on this Shotgun for Home Defense
    I bought my 870 Express Synthetic Tactical 7 Round in August 2016 for home defense figuring a factory 6 round magazine tube would be inherently more reliable than a gun modified to receive an extension. That being said, ...a year later, my magazine spring has completely lost tension and will not feed the last round. more

    I have long been convinced that the Remington 870 is the best slide action shotgun on the market. Perhaps it is the steel (as opposed to aluminum) receiver that gives it such a solid, balanced feel. Perhaps it is the act...ion. I think there are a number of things that go into the equation that make this such an outstanding weapon. If you're looking for a home defense gun, look no further. The shotgun is not only a devastating short range weapon, it is probably the most politically correct weapon that one can wield. It's right in the American psyche. Americans just seem to identify with it. This may not be so for an AR15,etc.. and I dare say the 870 is more effective in a defensive role. Also, while the Police models are beautiful, they may not be necessary with the extra features for a home defense setting. I am convinced that the working man's version is every bit as good as the Police model, while not nearly as expensive. Buds is THEE greatest. You will not meet anyone who has better prices and better customer service. Buds ranks first in both. more

    For the price Rem. 870 is the best tact. Shotgun
    I purchased my Rem. 870 2 yrs. ago , which it looks so much different from when I first bought it. I put a Magpul stock and aluminum follower in the magazine tube. Knoxx telescopic pistol grip stock. Over sized safety bu...tton and an adjustable side saddle that holds seven additional shells. I yet need to put a Red dot scope on my lovely girl , because I love shooting slugs through her and I want the best accuracy possible ! Yes , if you are looking for a tactical shotgun , I've owned a Winchester Defender 1300 and Mossberg 500 , Remington 870 is my choice!!! more

    Get it. You won't regret it.
    I have owned this gun for 3 years now. I love the fact that there are so many accessories you can add to make it your own. I have about $550 in this gun now and it is set up perfectly for me. It's easy to clean, cus...tomize, and shoot. As long as you don't short stroke this firearm, it won't jam. I feel comfortable hitting targets up to 50 yards with Buckshot and 100 with slugs. (Not all of the shot hits the target at 50 yards). For home defense, you have the most devastating option available at a great price. more

    Matte finish, 6+1 with 18" barrel. Perfect!!
    I bought this shotgun yesterday and shot it yesterday, I love it. I love the fact that it is has a 18" barrel with 6+1 Mag tube!! The matte finish makes it look great!! Cycles smooth and has a nice rubber butt pad. ...I don't know why Mossberg doesn't off a 500 in a 18" barrel with 6+1? If they do offer I have never found one. The good thing about the Remington is, I can still extend the mag if I wanted! I love this setup for home defense! Get one!! more

    Buyer's Remorse
    I'd echo several of the other commenters on here. Please be aware that this model DOES NOT ACCEPT BARREL LENGTHS OTHER THAN 18". Because of this (frustratingly hidden) limitation, this shotgun is not fit for purpose... for bird hunting, rifled deer slugs, trap, or skeet. more

    Thank you Buds! The 870 is a great performing shotgun! The only problem that I had was the first time firing the weapon it was having FTE at least 1 out of the 6 round...this happen every time and I shot a total of 50 ro...unds. After inspecting the shotgun, the barrel had a small grove by the chamber that was causing the problem. I sanded it with the help of videos on the internet....only took about 10 minutes and now the 870 is flawless. I have put many rounds through it and no FTEs! Again, only had problems the shotgun, but Buds was a pleasure to deal with! Will do business with Buds again! more

    Great Home Defense Shotgun
    You just cannot find a better pump shotgun than the tried and proven (for 50 years) Remington 870. I recently bought the 870 Tactical (6+1) synthetic stock, 18" barrel 12 gauge and it is a delight to handle and alth...ough I have plenty of other shotguns in my collection, well, this one just looks scary! I have no doubt that should the time come I need to use it to defend life and home it will do the job very well. more

    Like someone else mentioned, mine is marked Tactical instead of Express and has a one piece magazine. Both pluses in my opinion. Only drawback I can see is barrel interchangeability. One piece mags should feed more relia...bly. The action on the one I received is smoother than the 870 Express models I have handled. Not smooth like an old Wingmaster but not bad. It feeds and cycles well and goes bang when I pull the trigger. Now for the bad. The action unlocking button is fairly sharp. Not finger cutting sharp but uncomfortable. Also, this is the dirtiest new firearm I have ever seen and not from being shot. Maybe because of the type of finish or maybe they're using a black rust preventer, but this thing was filthy. Pay particular attention to the inside of the mag tube. Dirty, dirty dirty. more

    Great All Round Shotgun
    I did a lot of research and because of owning an 870 Wingmaster in the past I purchased this 870 tactical. Out of the box, I did find that I had to get use to making sure that I worked the action fully. If I was lazy at ...all it would jamb. Once I figuired that out the gun has worked flawlessly. One reason I bought this gun was becasue there is a lot of accessories online for this shotgun. I it is really easy to completely disasemble, clean and put back together. I do plan to purchase a 28inch barrel for it so that I can use it for duck hunting. All in all this is the most versitile, reliable and fun gun I have bought in years. My friend bought one as well and is just as pleased. His front site did slide out sideways when we first got them. We did repair it bu using a punch on the mating surface by making a slight dimple, it fixed the problem. more

    #1 shotgun
    My grandpa bought a remington 870 express almost 15 years ago and it served him as a very reliable shotgun he used for hunting the very same gun he gave to me when i was only six years old (18 now) and to this day it ser...ves me for the same thing and has never failed to fire or eject a round the action is still as smooth as the day it was bought ! If your thinking about buying a good shotgun for home defense or just a reliable gun to hunt with there is a remington 870 for you it was my first shotgun and its always been so good to me buyin another model shotgun would almost feel like i was cheatin on a woman i had been with for 12 or so years so im going to buy another one for home defense.

    What can I say? It's a Remington 870! I have been a fan of the Remington 870 for years and this is not the first 870 I've owned. All I can say is it's a tried and true design that will function flawlessly in any conditio...n with any ammo. I use an 870 Express for trap shooting and consistently shoot as well or better than guys with $2000 trap guns. I bought the 870 with the 18" barrel for home defense and it is a stout and smooth performing shotgun. You can't go wrong with an 870, which is why the police and military have trusted their lives to Remington 870's for decades. more

    Remington 870 Pump
    A Remington 870 virtually identical to this utilitarian model was my "partner" during a 30 year law enforcement career. There's a reason police, sheriff, highway patrol, state police, and federal agencies have ...been carrying these as standard equipment in their patrol cars since the 1950's. The 870 is simply the most well made, rugged, and reliable pump action shotgun out there, bar none. There's no need for all the fancy Hollywood tactical features.

    The gun I received is not the one in the picture. Gun was marked 870 tactical on the receiver, not 870 express. Also has 1 piece magazine tube(capacity 7) instead of the plus 2 extension in the picture. The barrel is lon...ger than the mag tube(same length in picture). The gun I received also has the shorter ribbed forend which I like better. Overall happy with the gun but be advised....not the one in the picture. more

    Great looking gun. But does not look anything like the picture. I received the 870 Tactical which already has a "tactical" style slim ribbed forend. I was thinking about an aftermarket forend, but the stock one is fine f...or looks (may need one though if I want rails for accessories). more

    Well worth it!
    Picked up one of these to just have a standard 12 gauge around the house. Also if you are interested in slugs out of this 18inch barrel, the Winchester Super X rifled slugs are awesome. I used it for firearm season and i...t shot 2 inch goups at 75 yards with just the bead sight. So very pleased :) more

    Buyer Beware
    I recently purchased the 870 Express Home Tactical/Home Defense Firearm. Something you should be aware of. In 2012 Remington came out with the attached 6 round magazine. Look closely and you will see that the barrel guid...e on this firearm is mounted up further then other 870's. Previously made 870 barrels will not fit this model of 870. A call to the Remington factory led to the following information. This shotgun was issued in 2012 and at this point other 870 barrels are not available for it. If barrel changability is important to you then I would say get the mossberg or the regular 870 and add the extented tube. I assume that someone will come up with a barrel or a spacer that will work on older barrels but I have yet to discover any. I love the 870's and wish this issue could be addressed, It would be nice to stick a plug in and add a different hunting barrel. more

    870 tactical is a good buy.
    I put 3 straight hours of shooting skeet into this gun right out of the box the first day I got it. It worked flawlessly and the ghost ring sights are very nice in my opinion. Slugs were right on target, didn't have to a...djust sights at all, perfect from the factory. If you want a tactical shotgun I think this is a great choice as there is a ton of aftermarket parts available. more

    Great, reliable, easy-to-use twelve gauge...
    I purchased this firearm from a sporting goods store and have yet to regret it. It was my first one and a great one at that. It is easy to clean and lubricate, disassemble and reassemble, and will shoot almost any type o...f round you feed it. So long as you maintain the barrel cleaned and lubricated, jams will not be an issue. I have shot several types of birdshot, buckshot, and slugs through the 870 with no alterations made to the gun prior to shooting. I still have it completely stock. Aside from the normal wear-and-tear of the finish, the Remington 870 has given me no trouble. Great way to get into firearms and holds its own in terms of reliability, firepower, and accuracy. There is a reason why law enforcement looks to the 870 and the Mossberg 500 as viable resources on the field! I am looking forward to the purchase of the Versamax very soon! more

    Great home defense shotgun.
    I visited my local Bass Pro Shop's and picked this shotgun up for both home defense & IPSC style shotgun target shooting. The 18" barrel allows for fast target transitions, and is fast handling. And I really lik...e how the magazine tube holds 6 rounds, and is a one piece design instead of the older style that has the 2 round extension that clamps onto the barrel. The price was very reasonable as well. I would highly recommend this shotgun for anyone who is looking for a tactical style shotgun for either home defense or "tactical" style target shooting. more

    Excellent!
    I just bought this shotgun at the Bass Pro in East TN near Pigeon Forge. I've been looking for a quality home defense shotgun for over a month, and Bass Pro had one that I liked in stock! There were two guys that were ve...ry helpful at their gun counter. I called the store before I drove down because I didn't want to make the trip for something that may not be in stock. They held this shotgun for me until I could come get it. Their customer service was excellent, and so is this Remington 870. My wife had trouble shouldering the Mossberg 590, but this fits her very well. Thank you to Bass Pro for carrying a great product at a great price, and thank you also for awesome customer service!!! more

    I have owned one of these shotguns for years. I don't know what they do to get the finish to be so durable but I have used mine in all kinds of conditions, abused the heck out of it and even used it as a boat oar once. T...he thing has yet to develop a speck of rust or even scratch for that matter. It has been utterly reliable and feeds every single round I have put in it. Never once have I had a misfire, jam, or FTE. If you want the classic workhorse, this is it. Hands down the best shotgun made. more

    Great Gun!
    I have hunted with the 870 for years and it has never let me down. It seemed natural that I would turn to my "old reliable" for a tactical gun and was not disappointed. This is a well balanced shotgun, even whe...n fully loaded. The action cycles beautifully round after round. I may swap out the butt stock for a collapsable, but that is a personal preference and not a shortcomming with the gun. If you are in the market for a hard hitting and reliable tactical shotgun, this one will not let you down. For the price, you really can't beat it. more

The 2nd one I added a 4 shot side saddle, Limbsaver recoil p...ad (really didn't need it tho) a Surefire Forend with flashlight, and some Wilson Combat Ghost Ring Sights. SWEET !!! Now the bad guys have a chioce of what to get shot with with they break into my house !!! IT EATS ANYTHING I FEED IT !!!

    This is my first online gun purchase and it was a great experience, bud's is the only place I will buy a gun from here on out, even after transfer fees an background checks I paid WAY less than my local shops. Two weeke...nds ago today I ordered the model 5077 remington 870 express online, it shipped on Monday and was delivered to my local dealer the following Monday, very fast and easy process!! My first shot fired from the gun was 2 3/4" 00 buck high brass, hit and exploded a 2 liter bottle of water from 50 feet no problem. After a couple boxes of 00 buck and slugs I switched to 8 shot and took out soda cans at 25 feet or so. I wasn't shooting clays or targets today I just wanted to get out and shoot it, next weekend I will set up targets and buy a box of clays to toss around. Oh yea I got this gun for HD but is a lot of fun to shoot too. Houghe 12" LOP stock and fore end on the way. more

    This is the perfect home defense weapon. The reliability of the Remington name, the shortened length for easy maneuverability in the home and the 7 shot magazine to deter even the most determined intruder make this my fa...vorite “ready” weapon. Perhaps naively, I chose the 870 over the 1100 for the psychological effect of the sound of rounds chambering to help warn an intruder before confrontation. In a persistent threat situation the 1100 might be a better choice. Of course the cost factor weighs in but safety should not be based solely on dollars. With the ease of operation, my wife is comfortable with the mechanics of this weapon. Since this is not a field gun, I cannot attest to the durability of the finish. The service and ease of transaction from Bud’s was top notch. The weapon was in my hand within a week with absolutely no complaints. I have expressed my opinion of this product and transaction to friends and one is in the process of ordering at the time of this writing. I am sure he will be as pleased as I. more

    I bought the870 express home field combo because my dad gave me his old 870 and it was a great gun. This the fit and function of this gun are great and it eats anything i feed it. The problem is the thing rusts way to mu...ch. I did a search on it and this seems to be a common problem. I have never taken the gun to a watery area and have it next to my bed for home defense. I have only had it two months and it is rusting already.I think I am gonna do a rattle can job to it and use it for a field gun. Gonna go buy a nova this week for home defense more

    I just recently purchased one of these shotguns from Buds and love it! It is definetly a mean looking shotgun and can easily be modified into a tactical shotgun at a cheap price. I am in the process of doing just that to... this gun. I am tempted to buy another one and put a pistol grip forearm and handle on it. The one I currently have I just installed a 6-position tactical stock on that also has a pistol grip. Also added a heat shield to the barrel with ghost sights. It has been transformed into an awesome tactical shotgun. The forearm in the picture is really shorter and has slits in it for added gripping performance. I won't be replacing it. This is a great home/self defense shotgun, especially if you modify it with some tactical equipment. This is one of the only shotguns currently available with the 18" barrel on Buds, so get one before they are all gone. I have not shot this gun yet but I am not worried about it performing fine. For the two bad reviews on this gun, they should try a shorter forearm if they are experiencing jamming. It might hopefully help eliminate the problems they were experiencing. more

    "If you want a pump, get an 870. If you want an auto, get a Benelli." I wanted a pump, so I grabbed an 870. Remington offers all kinds of various setups and barrel types to suit any need, and the 870 is a steadfast desig...n that works every time. Plenty of aftermarket parts are available for the 870, and one can customize it to meet his or her needs to a T. Field stripping and break-down is easy, and the dual action bars are tough as nails. Beware that if you want to attach a 6- or 8-shell sidesaddle to the receiver, the factory forend is too long to fully cycle the action. You'll need to cut it, or buy a short forend from Wilson Combat or Surefire. more
