I've never ownend an 870. I know they are great shotguns
If not, get moving!
I had one just a little older than that, bought new in '80, it was stolen in '84. I've have many since, but never as nice.
Will post pics soon
Good for you...enjoy it and use it!
That price is BEYOND good if the gun really is in great condition. If you haven’t already bought it, consider that a failure on your part.
Those older barrels CAN be threaded for some aftermarket tubes, but the steel isn't thick enough to be modified for Remington factory tubes. And going that route is almost as expensive as just buying a new barrel, or new shotgun.
It is smooth as glass and really reliable.
(I have an 870 20 Ga Ducks Unlimited banquet gun, but that’s a safe queen.) That extra-long barrel is a bit much for most use, you may want to get it shortened a bit and have choke tubes installed, then you’ve got a true do-everything shotgun for sure!
