Remington® 11-87 Sportsman Black Shotgun
Great all around gun
First I would like to say this gun is amazing. It cycles everything from 2 3/4 to 3 inch shells. It shoots a great pattern also. I ise this gun for hunting everying from birds to deer to coyotes. Though there are a lot of reviews saying that it doesn't cycle shells and stuff ot is probably because they did not take the time to read the manual which states that it cannot cycle shells lighter than 1 1/8 ounces. That is actually really good considering most benellis can't even cycle that light of shells. Also people say that the gun is very heavy, which in fact it is but it is better because it gives you a nice steady hold and reduces recoil. Which brings me to felt recoil, this gun reduces recoil to that of a 20 ga. The gas system that they put in is better in my mind than the Benelli inertia systems. I hope this helps.

Not even a good single shot! Jams up when loading and very heavy. You would stand a better chance of getting the birds if you used this frustrating piece of junk for a club. Remington pump I tried worked way better and got the birds. Buy something else with your hard earned money instead of the 11-87. I gave it one star cause you could always throw it.

Very poor quality
I bought this gun because I have always trusted Remington and the gun was on sale. I got a great price but I guess you get what you pay for, sometimes...
About one out of five shots jam. Called Remington, they said use only Remington ammo. With Remington ammo I get about six shots before it jams.
Sent it back to the factory, they said it works as designed.
I am an experienced shooter and have cleaned and oiled the gun many times, same results.
The inner workings of the gun look like they were made from crushed up beers cans and a rusty hammer, very poor design and workmanship.
Most of my buddies shoot Beretta, I wish I had spent the extra money and bought a better quality gun. I would not recommend this gun and I will probably never buy another Remington.

Ive had the 1187 for three years now and I love it. Takes a little while to break in but after a few hundred shells it cycles flawlessly. Great gun for the $. I know one day when I'm dead and gone my son will be dropping ducks with it. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.
