    Michigander lost in... The Yonders, Oklahoma
    I bought my 870 Express while stationed at Ft. Sill in 1988. Was a no frills with 29" beaded full choke barrel. In those days it took more than its share of quail and dove. I've had this shotgun longer than any other forearm I've owned.

    Few years back I bought a Remington 21" rifle sight improved cylinder barrel for it. I've put many 00's thru this barrel at the range, but never tried any slugs.

    Well this past weekend I took a handful of 2 3/4 Rem Sluggers with and was really suprised at what I saw. At 50 yards I made two separate 1.5" 3 shot groups using my rang bag as a rest. Now that is best guess estimate as the paper was pretty tore up, but damn close. I'm a pretty happy camper with this old workhorse. :D
