    An 870 Express is an 870 Express. Both are 3" magnum chambered. The 870 Express Magnum is a model available in several different variations directed toward hunting, sport or HD applications. The 870 Tactical is one of those variations & its features are intended for"Social" purposes. And, for that application, it is a very good choice. If you are planning on Turkey Hunting...not so much.

    870 is probably the most commonly issued police shotgun in the US.
    It's been in service long enough the bugs are pretty well worked out of it.
