Well, a previously enjoyed Rem 870 followed me home from Gander over the weekend. It is a 26" Remchoked 870, a little bluing worn off the magazine tube, but barrel, receiver, and stock are perfect. Slapped on a Limbsaver pad replacing the hard brown corregated Rem pad. $260 for the 870, $30 for the pad - seemed reasonably priced? Will call Remington with serial # to see when it was built. Need to take it to the skeet field this weekend to try out. This will replace a 28" Win. 1300 and a 20" 870P I have. Anyone need a 1300 or a 870P?
