    Love my shotgun. the Ghost ring sights are right on the money and quick and easy to get onto target. the light on the forearm allows building clearing ease... All together a great package in a great gun.

    I have always had good results when utilizing my Remingon 870. It's use for simple crowd control is unmatched. When people hear the shotgun rack, they know you mean business. You don't get that with a patrol rifle.....

    First, to correct a clerical error: It is a 'Scattergun'. We use them less the light with slugs. Wonderful weapon and as accurate as the shooter. You might consider going low recoil slugs to build confidence in the new people or the old flinchers. One ounce of lead going downrange is intimidating. "There are no naturally occurring metallic sounds in the jungle". This weapon provides the univeral sound that everyone understands: Rack-rack! Stand back.....

    My department just went to the 870 after years of using th Mossberg 500. I find the 870 superior in every way. It is more accurate, easier to handle, less recoil. Just a joy to shoot.

    By far the single best deterrent an Officer can carry. The simply sound of a round being racked has cleared many an alley for me while on patrol. While a pistol round is just as likely and frankly even more likely to cause death by gunfire, a suspect seems willing to sometimes take a chance. When you rack a round in the 870 they believe it is all over and immediately surrender helping to keep down the officer involved shootings. Always reliable and easy to clear any jam. A tough weapon that should always be within your reach. A five star rating the website will not allow me to rate this 5 stars, only 2, not right

    The 870 is by far a simple, no nonsense, get the job done weapon. It's as versitile as the rounds you put in it or the accessaries you put on it. I have never had any major problems with the 870. It's a staple. I however have stepped down to the 870 express magnum in 20 gauge due to neck surgery. The 12 just plain puts a hurt on me now. I load with rifled slugs and have replaced the choke to allow the slugs with no problem. Only thing is, I'm hurting in the accessary department. The big brother (12) has all the fun and my little brother (20) just sits there and looks pretty. Oh well, love my 870, big or little, gets the job done. Stay Safe

    A true workhorse. The 870 was my shotgun of choice before I purchased my Benelli M1. I have carried both raised bead & rifled sight models in 18 & 20 inch. Never had one with ghost rings but I think rings would be the preferred sight for a combat shotgun. I prefer the 18 inch gun for car carry...you will be surprised the difference 2 inches makes dragging it in and out of your cruiser.

    Scattergun Technology has some excellent upgrades for the stock gun, and while they might seem pricey they aren' t much more than what it would cost to piece all the upgrades together. Even if you don't use the company, their product list could give you some neat ideas. That said a bone-stock 870 with a sling is something I would have full confidence in.

    R870 with barrel sawed down the 14.5 inches, sidesaddle, rifle sites, composite pistol grip shoulder stock and tactical sling and I'm in heaven. This a great all-purpose gun. Still my choice in the world of big scary guns that make a familiar noise when you rack it. Ghost rings are cool too! Never used one with a light built on.

    My department switched from an autoloader (Beretta 1200FP) to the 870 Marine Magnum 5 years ago. IMO, a step backwards. It gets the job done, but the auto could lay down some serious firepower. Ghost ring or rifle sights a must have- bead sight iffy at best.

    The tried and true 870 remington pump action shotgun. My department has several in use with 18" barrels, speed feed stocks and mag extensions. Reliable with all types of ammo, including less than lethal. If it wasn't for the need to shoot low-recoil rounds that don't reliably cycle semi-autos, I'd rather go for a Benelli, but this is a great shotgun either way.

    I carried very similar to the one pictured on patrol, and transitioned to a Benellli Semi auto while in K-9. Although the Benelli was a SMOOTH weapon, I missed the durability of the 870. The Benelli was finicky, especially when adding accessories (i.e sidesaddle). I now have another 870 which has performed flawlessly. I would not hesitate to use it in any life and death situation.

    We use the 870 Law enforcement model for grizzly bear management and personal defense; carrying aversive rounds like bean bags and rubber slugs, as well as 1oz lead slugs for lethal backup, Overall a very reliable and easy to maintain firearm in my experience. If I trust it staring down a grizzly, I'd be just as confident to use it for defense against a person. Carrying it also gets respect and compliance when asking people to behave and keep their distance from bears.

    I have found it to be a very reliable shotgun. It is fairly versitile as far as add-ons, although mine is currently stock. I'd really like to get the Ghost Sights, though.

    This is one of the best shotguns in the world. It is accurate and powerful, and holds just enough in the intimidation department so hopefully you won't have to use it.

    I own two 870's one in twelve GA and the second in twenty GA. The twelve is for me and the twenty is for my lovely wife.

    The 870 is the "ideal psychological weapon" as the "chink-chink" of a shell being loaded will cause even those on drugs to wet their pants and surrender rather than fight. In the off-chance you need to use the Remington 870, it will get the job done - and then some!

    No gun collection would be complete without this five-star workhorse!

    We finally went over the patrol rifles 2 yrs ago and I love them, but I find myself reaching for my Remington still. Thank god they decided to mount both of them in a our patrol units.

    Every chance I get to take it to the range I do and like others have said here already, probably the most reliable shotgun out there.

I've heard nothing but good things of it. I've seen nothing but good things from it. I've killed many-a-animal with it. I've heard stories of men 'soiling' thier pants upon hearing the charging of the weapon's action (rack-a-round). Upgradeable, versatile, reliable, durable.........all-able. Best pump shotgun available. The 870 is to shotguns, what the .98 Mauser is to rifles.

    You absolutely cannot beat a 12guage shotgun, particularly the Remington 870, for overall versatility, firepower, and intimidation in any high risk situation. I carry a 'tricked out' version as my primary weapon on SWAT entries (with an Eotech optical sight) and consistently shoot groups as good as or better than the sub-gun guys (using 1oz. slugs, a 14 in bbl, at 75 yards). Granted, I am limited by the amount of rounds I can send down range, but only one counts!

    My department now issues this weapon, so of course the price is right. In a world where most officers are going to long rifles, AR's and such, the shotgun is kinda losing its momentum. However, I love the short barrel and now with shooting "less spread" shotgun rounds, its damn accurate, even at 50 yards. The 870 is dependable, i've never had a malfunction. Very durable, its been used in a butt-stroke situation a time or two. And still sounds cool as hell when exiting your car and racking a round for posterity.

    Hands down the toughest, most versitile, and easy to clean shotgun out there. I own the 870 Remington with smooth bore barrel as well as the rifled barrel. I can use this gun for all hunting and also personal protection. In terms of toughness, I dropped this thing in a shallow lake that we where duck hunting on, picked it up, dried it off, and continued hunting without any troubles given by the gun. Cleaning this gun is also extremely easy, but the fact is I know you can leave this gun alone without cleaning it for a good number of months and it will still fire and cycle like it was new. 5 out of 5 for this baby. Won't leave for hunting without it.

    Mine is a 1994 vintage 870 SPS, to which I fitted a 20" Rem Choke bbl w/rifle sights (pre-dates ghost rings). I find I get excellent slug accuracy and reasonably tight buckshot patterns with the Imp Cyl tube. Slug hits on a 10-12" dia gong at 100 yards are easy from kneeling or standing, and out to 150 is easily doable from kneeling. Center mass hits at 50 yds are simple, as fast as you can line up the sights. Eff. range w/00 buck is abt 25 yds, although I am looking forward to trying the Federal w/Flite-control wad (rumor is 4" patterns at 15 yds!). I have a 4-rd sidesaddle as well as a 5-rd elastic stock cuff. I will be adding a Tac-Star WLS 2000 light shortly (I have one on my M-4). I went to an armorer's class last summer-- you then fully realize what a fantastic weapon it is, very robust and simple. I will give up my 870 when they pry it from my cold, dead fingers.......

    The Remington 870 has provided years of unparalled service to so many departments throughout the country. The shotgun, in my opinion, is the most versatile and effective small arms weapon that can be deployed in virtually any type of situation. The reputation of this weapon is prevalent amongst not only law enforcement but also criminals. I can't tell you how many times the presence of a shotgun has diffused situations that had the potential to become life threatening.

The sling mounts between the receiver and butt stock and allows you to sling your weopon and go hands on or transition to your sidearm without setting your long gun down.

    Some people dont like the shotgun but I love my 870. It's the first tool that I grab from the trunk when I'm going into something hot and I am confident in it. I wish the dept would spring for surefire forearm lights but the mounts that we have mounted on them work pretty good. The shotgun is still a viable tool as far as I am concerned.

    It serves it's purpose but is quickly becoming obsolete. I've never been a big fan of the 870 and it stays locked in the shotgun rack of my patrol car most of the time. It's a reliable weapon and has served it's purpose well over the years but it's not for me.

    I have outfitted mine with the Surefire forend and a pistol grip Speed Feed Buttstock. It is a highly dependable weapon and I use it for home defense loaded wiith 4 low recoil birdshot and 4 slugs. It is a workhorse that I can depend on. I will be changing the stock out to a Knoxx SpecOps stock and adding a tactical sling. The Speed Feed is a very long stock that is difficult for my wife to use.

    I also need to take a good tactical course for shotguns, any recommendations? I have completed POST Courses but I feel a quality course that significantly details the full potential of the weapon would be best.

    You can't go wrong with any scattergun, but the 870 has a long history. These are an excellent corrections weapon, but have run into some problem with our specific models on our Emergency Response Team. They are just too long for searching a building and have suggested shorter barrels, and the M-4 style stock for them and have run into the budget constraint wall.

    We use a Parkerized version with a 14" barrel and Trijicon night sights mounted on the barrel.. It is a great slug gun and with the 14" barrel, easy to move around while clearing a building. I can stack 5 rounds of slugs into an area the size of the palm of my hand at 50 yards. EAsy to train with, easy to clear malfunctions, and robust.

    I keep reading about the sound of a shotgun's action making the bad guys tremble in fear. If you are showing up in the vicinity of a possible shooting situation with an empty shotgun, you should rethink your tactics. Put a round in the chamber BEFORE you need it!

    This is one of the finest products for use during riot control and for patrol purposes, (i.e.; building searches, and during crowd control); it is one of my favorites to use for an all purpose weapon on the streets when on duty. Excellent back up weapon. I wouldn't leave home to patrol the streets without it. It is an accurate weapon and used most in police departments that are county wide, such as Deputy Sheriff, etc.

    Very good shotgun but i'm still partial to Mossberg. Not a big fan of the safety and forend release location on the 870. If you want a sidesaddle carrier and have the 7 1/4 factory forend, you either have to grind down the forend a little or settle for a 4 round sidesaddle carrier. As far as durability and reliability, it's right up there with Mossberg.

    Had mine since I was 16, My wingmaster has gathered game, killed feral dogs and ran off folks snooping around at night, It is a standard 2-3/4 shell length and I have had no problems with it now in its 27 years of service to me.

    I have the Rem 870 normal shotgun with 26" barrel. But, I believe that the worst sound an intruder will ever hear is the shucking sound of a shell of 00 Buck being chambered. This gun is simple, easy, low maintenance, shoots great for hunting and home defense. I have a 13 yo boy that began shooting number 8's in this at age 10. I would only go with a 12 GG. Have wonderful time. God bless you all.

Very accurate I placed 4 slugs in a 3" group with only a bead front site during a 30 yard qualification shoot after not shooting this weapon for about 2 years.
