I'm kinda surprised they didn't use the 11-87, but that 1100 is sweet!
OTOH, what's up with the current trend of hanging a collapsible M4 stock on everything and calling it the "tactical" model. Not saying that's the only mod on these shotties, just another example. There's a picture of a single-shot handi rifle around here somewhere with the M4 stock and a Surefire. I just think it gets a little silly...
I personally like older 870's before they started using plastic for the trigger guard. I bought a 1979 Wingmaster that had a 18" barrel with rifle sights and an extended mag. I've since had it coated in OD green and added Knoxx Compstock. It fit's my needs perfectly and it looks very similar to the one's they're making now.
I know the Police versions use all steel and if I were to go the new route I'd get a police version with Ghost Ring sights.
