    This is a been out since around 1950 and this is just a moderm version of a classical gun, it's got the plastic stock and it's just got a parker eyes finished, this is basically the most valuew model you can get around. ...This is good for home defense, it a lot of fun shooting with this pump shotgun, this is a devastating self defense weapon. this is also a real budget-friendly shotgun that a lot of people are going to but it because this is really good. more

  • Look no further for the best Remington 870 tactical shotgun choices currently in production.
    this shotgun is 12 gauge tactical series, it is a 7+1 capacity, its got the safety on but not an ideal angle for some reason. This is epic more than any shotgun and one gets the feeling the venerable smoothbore is only j...ust beginning to stretch its legs. this is good for home defense most likely like that. in terms of quality, its got a good finished on it very reliable and accurate in close combat, this is good to have for a collector and shooter out there more

    Another positive experience at Bud's. The Remington 870 Express Tactical is an exceptional shotgun, and definitely meets my expectations. Quality, performance, and reliability is top-notch and standard for Remington. Bud...'s Gun Shop has become my favorite supplier for firearms, accessories, and ammunition. The firearms always arrive in pristine condition, as one would expect, and the customer service is excellent. The pricing is always very competitive, and the delivery time is reasonable. Great job guys! Thanks again! more

    Confidence, is what you get when purchasing from Buds. This rifle stands up to quality that you would expect from this company. Item as described, delivery was quick. I can only give Bud positive marks. OH by the way Pus...hing Federal Hollow Point slugs out of this baby will surely turn heads at the range. Modified and turned it into a full tactical. Working with this rifle, Remington has made it so simple. This is the second firearm I have purchased from Buds. more

    Bought the Remington 870 Express Tactical for home defense. Perfect transaction with Bud's - as usual! Took the gun out for a box of shells (1-1/8 #8 target load,) and it performed without a hitch. Action is smooth, load...ing and ejecting perfectly. I like the ghost ring sight, but not sure how useful it would be in a dark environment like a hallway at night. Will probably add a holographic sight to the installed picatinny rail. The gun is substantial with its receiver milled from a single block of billet steel, and heavy enough to soak up a lot of the recoil - no need for an accessory pad on this shotgun. 18-1/2" barrel length is perfect for close quarters defense. After much research, chose this Remington over its Mossberg counterpart, and happy I did. more

    Ordered it on the 9th and was shooting it on the 13th. Shoots the same as any other 870 I've owned. No surprises with Buds or the shotgun. Couldn't be more happy.

    I just bought the gun last week and shot it at the range a week later. First round went through and second round didnt eject. Took the gun apart to see what the problem was and found out the ejector completely broke. the... gun looks great but having a brand new gun break on the second shot wasnt what i was expecting. Wasnt happy either. more

    I have taken this to the range a few times and it's functioned well. It takes some elbow grease to put back together if you take the bolt out. It's a shotgun and I only shoot 00 buck with it so there's not much to say ab...out accuracy other than it goes where I point. My only complaint would be the recoil with the factory pad. I know, I know, it's a 12 gauge right? I grew up hunting waterfowl and my old pump 12g 26" barrel doesn't pack nearly the umph that this does. I'm an average frame guy and I don't bruise easily at all but this left some bruising. The pad can be replaced though (and I did replace it). All-in-all I'm happy with the shotgun. The ghost ring sight is very easy to acquire an adequate shot. I replaced the foregrip with one that has picatinny rails and put on a light on it. It's my dedicated home defense firearm. With that in mind, the recoil is not too much of a concern to me, if I ever HAVE to use this thing, I'm not going to be worried about bruising my shoulder. more

    Awesome weapon. My only complaint was that I was expecting a more traditional ghost ring sight, and it came with Remington's newer style ghost ring. But overall I'm still very happy with it.

    I have had this shotgun for a year and a half now. The finish and smoothness of action leave a bit to be desired, though this is an Express model not a Wingmaster. Out of the box it would not reliably eject aluminum base...d shells, they would stovepipe in the ejection port. Also, it would occasionally not feed shells into the receiver. I would have to hit the magazine tube as hard as I could to get them to start feeding again. Neither of these were difficult to fix, but it was disappointing that they had to be addressed. The ejection issue was fixed with a non-MIM extractor and a very thorough chamber polish. I can not believe that Remington would put their name on a gun with a chamber as rough as this one was. The feeding issue was due to the magazine cap nut and extension. With the cap nut fully seated on the fixed portion of the magazine tube, the extension tube would run out of threads before it would seat on the fixed portion of the mag tube. This left a gap that the shells would catch on. To fix this, I took my Dremel to the magazine cap nut and ground out the first 1/3 of a turn of threading. This allowed the extension to fully seat and the feeding issue is gone. It runs like a top now, but these problems were design or manufacturing flaws that should not have not made it past QA. more

    I received this shotgun a few months ago and being my first shotgun I have to say it is of very good quality. The fit and finish is outstanding and being my first online order Bud's was a very pleasant and strait forward... process. The shotgun is a machine to say the least, nice feel and i very fun to modify and make your own; I'm 6'3 so the original stock was a bit short for me, i put a magpul stock anf forend on it and it is perfect for me now. Buy it you won't regret it. more

    Just bought my first gun from Buds on 8/4/12 and had a good experience with one minor issue. I live locally and this Rem 870 Tactical was available in Lexington, but I was referred by an associate to order it online whic...h cost me about 4 days of pick up time. Minor inconvenience, but worth noting. Dealing with Buds Police Supply/FFL was great and very easy and professional. They walked me through all the paperwork and I was out the door on my 2nd visit in less than 15 minutes. You can't beat Bud's pricing and the friendly staff was helpful, even if the first person I talked to was a bit misinformed. However, dont think twice from ordering from Buds or visiting if you live locally. I havent taken my new 870 shooting yet, so I can only review the out of the box experience which has been great. You know what you are getting with an 870 and the tactical express is no different. The Ghost ring sights look fantastic and are easy to see and give it a nice aggressive look. I'm not sure how useful the door breacher will be in most peoples lives, but its easily replaced with the choke of your choice. If you're like me and are buying for the long term then spend the extra up front on this model over the base 870 express as you will save time and $$$ if you ever plan on adding a ghost ring kit or other sight. 5 out of 5 for the shotgun and 4 out of 5 for Buds, with a strong recommendation to buy from them! more

    5 Stars for the gun. I love it! I really like the ghost ring sights and it is very accurate and patterns very well for a home defense / law enforcement shotgun. I have an older 870 that was issued to me by my department,... but this one is better in my opinion for LE work. The extended ported Tactical Rem Choke will be good for breeching doorways, and the addition of the rail on the receiver is a big plus. I was NOT impressed by Bud's Gun Shop, however. While the prices are reasonable, the customer service is not so good. The shipping was slow, and what's up with the 10{f1c55bf2df86ce525f1f04202aa2bbc05a0c3e4ea529defb75b6dd202779b4d4} restocking fee (Seriously?!). When I first made my order, this gun was not in stock and I was told it was a hard-to-get item, so I ordered another similar gun. A few hours later I checked and this was in stock, so I asked if I could change my order. I was charged 10{f1c55bf2df86ce525f1f04202aa2bbc05a0c3e4ea529defb75b6dd202779b4d4} of the cost for the first gun plus the penalty for using a credit card instead of cash (twice) that is not included in the display price which made me pay well over $500.00 for this gun. I'm not sure I will ever order from Bud's again. Maybe if all else fails and I need a particular gun and NO one else has it in stock, but it will be a reluctant purchase. The bottom line is if you want a good reliable self-defense/home-defense or duty shotgun, then you will not go wrong buying this one, but try to buy it from someone else. more

    Overall solid package, I consider it a nice value since it comes out of the box with the receiver tapped for the ghost ring sights (ready for reflex sight, or scope), magazine extension, AND the rem choke threaded barrel.... This is my all-purpose shotgun. Nice and easy handling with an 18.5" barrel, and extended mag for home defense. Ghost ring sights are fast and easy to aim. I shoot skeet for fun, with a modified choke in. The major complaint from a lot of Remington Express Tactical owners seems to be the black oxide finish wearing off too easy. I can see some wear at high friction areas after 100 rds, but time will tell how it holds up. Good service and good price from Buds. more

    It's a Remington 870 It's Great! The XS sights are dead on at 50 yards out of the box with Federal Tru Ball slugs for me. I love the fact that I can change out the tactical choke for any choke I want. I just got an impro...ved cylinder rem choke that works wonders for tight pattern buckshot, with this combo I do not need a Vang Comp Barrrel at all. Also tried a modified choke that worked great for clays and the extended rifled choke that worked great for Sabot Slugs for deer hunting. I immediately changed out the forend for a hogue a Remington Supercell butt pad and added a tacstar side saddle. Very happy with the purchase from buds great service and transfer was very smooth with golden state tactical in Sacramento ca. This was my second and certainly not the last purchase from these fellows. Buy It, Clean It, Shoot It! more
