For those looking for that "one shotgun to do it all," you'd be hard pressed to find a more affordable, all-purpose, high performance option than the Remington 870 Express Super Magnum 12 Gauge w/28" Barrel Shotgun. Capable of digesting 2-3/4", 3", and 3-1/2" shells without a hiccup, the 870 Express Super Magnum is as at home in the dove field as it is in the duck blind or on the skeet field. This pump action features a 3-1/2" chamber, 3 + 1 capacity, and proven, smooth operating 870 action. The 28'' vent rib barrel features a modified Rem choke and bead sight. Wood stock and forearm. Black finish.

I got this gun before last waterfowl hunting season and I love it! I love that it comes with 3 and a half inch chamber, those shells knock ducks and geese outta the sky like nothing, Comes with the flat finish so its not shiny so ducks and geese cant spot it. Overall great gun couldn't ask for a better one. Can't wait till this season to slaughter again!!

I just bought this shotgun today and it is unbelieveable for the price. The gun is just as solid as ever and I shot 100 rounds through it without a single problem. In my opinion this is the best shotgun for the price. I highly reccomend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HavocTec Most reliable shotgun ever
I've had an 870 in hand from age 7 until now (25). I've shot everything from 1187s to Browning 425s and 525s, and I always choose my 870 for hunting and clays. I've used it for rabbit, dove, waterfowl, turkey. deer, pheasant and quail hunting, as well as trap, skeet and even sporting clays shooting and I can't see myself going to another shotgun.
I know its reputation speaks for itself, I just thought I'd add yet another ringing endorsement to the 870's resume. You simply cannot find a more reliable shotgun that can be put to so many uses with this low of a pricetag.

If it is your first waterfowl gun, go with this (the Remington). I cannot say enough about the 870. I like the Mossberg as well, but you cannot go wrong with a Remington and it will be a great starting point to learn about shotguns.
Is a Chevy or Ford better? Same question. Some people swear by Remington, I happen to be a Mossberg fan. Each is going to last basically forever.
My favorite thing about Mossy's are the controls with the slide release behind the trigger guard instead of reaching in front and the safety being ambidextrous on top instead of a cross bar safety on the Remington.
You just have to handle them both and see which one talks to you.
