Giving you the same precision, performance, and dependability as the proven 870 Wingmaster, the Remington 870 Express 12 Gauge w/28" Barrel Shotgun is a value-priced workhorse. This durable gun pairs the proven 870 action with a receiver milled from a solid billet of steel for maximum strength and reliability. The silky smooth twin action bars prevent binding and twisting so that you'll always have the chance to get off a second shot. This pump action sports non-reflective black matte metalwork and a no-frills satin finish hardwood stock and forend. Comes with a 3" chamber and 4 + 1 capacity. The 28'' vent rib barrel features a Rem choke and front bead sight. Black finish. Wood stock.
Rated 5 out of 5 by gunman88 great first gun
bought this as my first gun. i wanted something to shoot trap/skeet with and didn't want to spend too much. remington 870 is one of the most popular guns and most reliable so i thought i'd give it a go. i've shot hundreds of rounds through it and not a single problem. easy to clean and simple. a great gun for trap. i haven't shot anyshotgun before this purchase so i didn't know too much about recoil. recoil wasn't bad being a younger guy. took some friends shooting and they got a bit bruised up after 50 something rounds but i've shot over a hundred in a day and nothing. just depends on the person i guess. overall great gun and i'd recommend it

Rated 5 out of 5 by thatguy2 real nice
Picked this up a few weeks ago and I am happy. Works great no problems at all. Have run a few hundred shells through it. Only thing is that the recoil pad is real hard so I swapped it out. Other than that it is one great shotgun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by QuackQuack not true checkering
The Remington 870 is a great gun. I just picked up one a few weeks ago. Overall its a fantastic gun only reason I gave it a 4 star rating and not a 5 star is that the checkering is not even true checkering. Its a stamped checker pattern with very little grip. Other than that the shotgun is awesome. Havent had any trouble with it so far.

I purchased one in Jan 2013n and was given a $30.00 rebate cupon to send to remington. 2 months later I ger a letter from remington that they are no longer giving a repate on the 870 express. I have been looking at a remingtom 1911 r 1 .45 cal and was going to purchase one but will now buy now from a honest company not remington.

Yes and no. Slugs you can't use a tight constriction. Turkey shot you need a tight constriction. Anything in between just try out different chokes with different shot to see what your gun patters the best with.
