Remington® 870 Marine Magnum 12 Gauge Shotgun
A Terrific Weapon
Choices in an environment-proof 12 gauge pump are basically limited to the Mossberg 500 Mariner and the Remington 870 Marine. After reviewing and inspecting both guns, I chose the Remington. The fit of the stock and recoil pad as well as the the texture of the synthetic stock and forearm are, in my opinion, better on the Remington. The nickel finish on the Remington is listed by Remington as complete, covering all inside and outside metal, Mossberg does not say if that is the case with their gun. The nickel finish seems smoother as well on the Remington. The 870 in any of it's configurations is a world-class shotgun and the Marine Magnum is no exception. The Remington does cost more than the Mossberg, but in my opinion, you get more gun for your money.

Remington 870 12 gague Marine Magnum
An excellent choice as a home or personal defense
shotgun. The electroless nickel finish resist rust an
corrison very well; even in hot and humid climates.
Shooting the 2-3/4 " or 3" magnum shells is simply
enjoyable; when fired from a Remington 870 Marine
Magnum. I highly recommend this weapon to all of
my friends, and or associates.

Remington Marine Magnum
I shot a friends Marine Magnum and put about 100 rounds thru it. It is a very sold shooting gun. I compared this to the Mossberg 500 and found that the 830 felt much more substantial. For me the fit was perfect as I have average arm length for the pump action. It is hard to explain but the 830 just felt like it was put together much tighter and solid.

Simply the Best !
Probably , one of the hardest of the Remington 870's to find, but well worth the search. I was able to get mine at the Grand Opening of the Palm Bay , Florida Bass Pro Shop . I believe as of this writing there are 2 left in stock. So if you got the desire, I would hurry over before they are gone.
