    Being unhappy with an 870 is like seeing a Toyota Pickup truck broken-down on the roadside, it just...doesn't happen! Well done!

    Good choice IMHO. Can spend more money, but can't beat that combination for function and effectiveness. Good for you.

    Ordered a Remington 870 Express Tactical

    Main reasons I went with the express tactical were because it has the factory installed extended mag tube, and factory installed ghost ring sights. If I was to buy a normal 870 I would install both, but to add a mag extension you have to grind down the dimples, and to install the ghost ring sights you have to have the gun drilled and tapped. So for around $100 more that's all done and ready. Works for me

    I picked one up for $350 new, but it was the non-tactical. Had the mag extension though. Just no flash suppressor, rail or ghost ring.

    I love mine!

    Not for me

    I bought an 870 Tactical about a year and a half ago with the factory extended mag tube. It would either not feed or double feed multiple kinds of shells regularly. I took it back to the very large gun store for repair, which made it worse, if anything. I finally convinced the manager that he should give me my money back, which he did.

    On to Benelli, where I have been very happy ever since.

    If it doesn't have one, pick up a magpul forend. It's the best useful upgrade I did to my express magnum. It's a little longer than the stock forend and is built up on the back so your hand has something to keep it from slipping off when racking the slide. It has made my empty chamber reloads faster in competitions. Best $29 I've spent.

    The plastic follower is a well known weak point. I plan on replacing it with a red aluminum one for around $15, no biggie and I prefer the visibility of the red follower

    Congrats on the new addition. The 870 is an awesome platform and the "tactical" is a great flavor. ;-)

    Please post pics when you get it.
