The firearm functions well and is well made. However the finish on the weapon is horrible. After placing it on an aluminum bench at the range the finish is wearing off which was rather disappointing for being the first day out on the range. Other than that the firearm lives up to the reputation. Also if you plan on extending the magazine tube it's probably best if you buy a remington with the factory extension. Other wise you will have to raise two dimples placed in the magazine tube with a dimple raiser tool or take it to a local shop. Since you are raising the dimples you will have to put some kind of protective coating or oil on the surface since the finish will be gone from the tool.

I must say I was a little questionable about buying this as it is Remington's "bottom line" express model. I wanted a shotgun for HD use and to have fun at the range from time to time. Upon receiving it from Bud's I was very impressed with the quality. I've messed with 870 police models and this one cycle's almost as smooth as the 870P's. I put a Knoxx recoil reducing stock and hogue rubber forend on and now it's very nice looking. I recommend changing out the extractor to a steel one and you will be good to go. Definately worth every penny. Fast shipping that bud's is famous for was also nice.

Bought this gun from Buds a few days ago very satisfied, handles any kind of ammo. installed a Choate extended magazine tube,about 30 minutes work with a Dremel tool. Now have a high capacity home defense gun.

I bought two of this model. Excellent shotgun for the price. Functions flawlessly and has the same reliability as other 870's I have shot and used throughout the years. The forearm of the pump is the same as the tactical line that Remington produces.The shotgun feeds and extracts without any problems. The stock is synthetic and it is somewhat hollow and light which does not dampen the recoil like a heavier stock. The plus side is that it is very light weight and easy to transition to the target. I am waiting for Bud's to offer these again so I can purchase more of this model shotgun. The magazine tube has dimples on the end to will preclude anyone who wants to add on an after market magazine extension. I give a rating of four only because of the ability not to add on a magazine extension because of Remington's redesign of the Express magazine tube.
