Don't know what you mean by 'out', but they are still available.

Saw one at the gun show today. Kind of looked like a gussied up Express.

They've been out for awhile.. Remington only recently updated their site.
I like mine a lot. The R3 buttpad it comes with really does kill most of the recoil. The shotgun looks really cool too. :D The 8 shot capacity rocks.. turns a target completely into confetti without having to reload.

I have one as well. I *think* that they were released as far back as the 2004 SHOT show; either way, I bought mine last Sept., and haven't seen that many out there.

What kind of finish does it have? The web site just says "OD green". Is that parkerized or what?

I think it's just painted on.
Mine has hasnt chipped or become stratched yet.. then again, I've only put about 25 shells through it at the local range. Havent beat on it much at all.

I'll keep my 870 Marine Magnum... it too holds 8 rounds from the factory, and i added the pistol-grip shoulder stock already...

Crazed, I'm in a similar situation (low rounds and no hard work). However, I'm taking it out to Frontsight for a 4-day course next week (first training course with a scattergun for me). I'll let you know if there are any issues with the finish, or anything else for that matter.

Now, that's interesting. The 1100, instead of an 11-87? Does it function better with 2-3/4", low-recoil loads, than the 11-87?

Remington's not offering it, because it's more reliable than the 11-87, are they? Just curious.

So are these essentailly standard 870 with a different (possibly better) finish h and a different set of stock/forend?

Slater

It would seem so. But they do look a bit more "tactical", as the name implies.

Ok 'splain the price difference to me please.

Went to Sportsman's Warehouse yesterday.

They have this for $499.00

http://www.remington.com/images/products/firearms/shotgun/smsil_tac8701.jpg

They have the Synthetic 18" for $229.00 (bottom pic with the shell extension.)

http://www.remington.com/images/products/firearms/shotgun/870expsyn18.jpg

You can purchase a Knoxx stock for $129.00, which is what is installed on the "tatical green painted 870" from the factory.

http://www.knoxx.com/store/graphics/SpecOps_mini.gif


$229
$129
____
$358

(Saving $141 (that's allot of BA/UU/R))

Are there constructional differences in the $499 870 that the Synthetic does not have?

OR: Is the "Tactical" worth the extra $141?

Thanks

Are there constructional differences in the $499 870 that the Synthetic does not have? RTFM, I can't see the images well enough to answer that with any kind of confidence, so take this with a huge grain of salt until someone more knowledgeable than me responds.

It could be (just a guess here) that the more expensive "tactical" one is based on an 870 Police model (870P), where as the less expensive one is built on the Express. (Added by edit: if so, then there should be different designations printed on the receiver of the one at Sportsman's Warehouse indicating it's a P and not an Express...I think...again, take with salt...)

If that's the case, then yes, IMO, it is worth the difference in price.

I explored the differences between 870P's, wingmasters & express ad naseum on THR before buying my 870P. I paid ~$150 more for the P, but IMO, it was worth it.

Others will have better knowledge of those guns you're looking at, however.

I have the 870P Max. It comes with a Surefire forend and all the bells and whistles. I got mine new for $699 and love it! It was a hell of a deal and a lot of gun for the money.

Nope, the Tactical is just an Express with the Knoxx stock and $141 worth of green paint.

Thanks B_T. And that's what I was afraid of.
And also, I like the black better.

Anyone else care to comment on the "Tactical"?

Found something else out.
The "Tactical" is a 20" tube with a three shot extension

The Synthetic is a 18" tube with a 2 shot extension.

So 1"=$70.50

And (drum roll please......ddddddddddddddddd)
They paint it twice for "durability'

The Tactical Magnum- leastways, the one I own- comes with a Speedfeed IV stock (and fore-end), R3 recoil pad, and +3 extension. 20" bbl on mine, though it may be available in 18. Price on mine was ~369 NIB, so I don't think I paid much for the OD paint or the "t"-tag.

Mine has a Speedfeed IV Pistol Grip Stock, R3 Buttpad, 3-shot extension, and matte olive drab paint. Cost 360 bucks.. I think it's a good deal. The local gun shop sells Remington 870 "security" shotguns for 300 bucks. The pistol grip stock, extension tube, and buttpad are worth at least $60 IMO.

The recoil is very easy. It rips paper targets to shreds and chambers and ejects shells without fail. Im not sure what else a shotgun is supposed to do.

Hemicuda,
How do you fit 8 rounds in your Marine Magnum?
Seems Remington could only fit 7 in theirs.

Inquiring minds would like to know.

Thanks again for the welcome..:)
