    When my made in 1955 Rem. 870 wears out, I am thinking seriously about buying an alloy frame shotgun like the Mossberg, cuz I won't have much time left to wear it out.

    I've got two of them. The first one, a 12 ga, is branded "Sears-Roebuck. I got it for $99.00, with a 28" mod and a 24" slug barrel, back in 1977. Every deer I ever killed, save one, fell in front of that pump gun.

    A few years ago, I bought a 20 ga from Wal-Mart, just to have one.

    I personaly own (mumble mumble is my wife looking) too many of them and have owned more. Good guns, especially at the price point. You'll always have the 870 fanboys (just like glock lovers) who have to bash them but to each their own. Kudos to an American company that's doing just fine.

    Wouldn't it be nice if their products were still made in America? even the 500 barrels are imported from Mexico now. Pretty soon they'll have to stop stamping the receivers "made in the U.S.A." I think they've already dropped their "buy American" advertising.

    Personally I don't really care where a certain part is made. The majority of American companies need to outsource some of there work to other countries. That being said, I still think some of there high quality firearms are made in the U.S. such as the 590A1.
