    It appears at any single time there are at least 5-6 threads with the numbers "870"(in that order) at any given time.

    Funny

    Not really. The 870 is the civilian arm with the most units made. Close to 8 million.

    And, the moderator here and some of the regulars are hard core, stone cold 870 fans.

    Don't let them know I told you....

    870 line has had more units sold than any other TYPE of shotgun in the world, meaning that this one pump action line has suprassed all semi-autos, breakaction, bolt-action, lever action, EVER.

    Theres a reason it is so well loved.

    BTW who prefers the serrated ribs to the smooth ones? I realize its machined so its straiter but it catches on stuff and really dosent cut down on glare or w/e they were going for.

    Don't tempt me. My sister is having a tattoo party tomorrow. If I were to get anything, that would be it.

    Same font that is on the receiver of course, in a dark blue. :p

    Here's the pictures I have. It's from the first batch of Ducks Unlimited 870's made in 1974, I think. One thing that's odd to me is that even I fire it a couple times a year, there's little to no wear on the magazine tube. I don't know if it's a matter of fitting, or just that it doesn't get as much use as some of my other shotguns. It's definitely a slick operator.

    Sorry DeadHead. I chickened out. :eek:
    I figure the money is better spent on ammo and range time anyway :p .
