The Remington® Model 870™ Pump-Action Shotgun is one of the most proven firearm's designs in history. The 870 Express® Compact is a rugged, value-priced workhorse, making it an extremely useful firearm for young people looking for their first gun, or experienced shooters of smaller stature. The versatile, no-nonsense 870 Express Compact can be used for hunting upland game, turkey, and deer, as well as a home defense shotgun, and informal clay pigeon shooting. At the heart of the ultra reliable 870 Remington is a receiver milled from a solid billet of steel for maximum strength, and twin action bars that prevent binding and twisting while cycling the action. 870 pump shotguns have great pointing characteristics. They come to the shooter's shoulder and acquire targets instinctively, and handle well in the field. The Remington Model 870 Express Pump-Action Shotgun comes with a durable, checkered hardwood stock and fore-end with a non-reflective finish, and a matte blue/black, bead-blasted finish on the receiver and barrel. The butt-stock and barrel on the Compact model are slightly shorter than standard length to accommodate shooters of smaller stature. The barrel has a vent rib and a bead sight, and uses standard Rem™ Choke screw-in choke tubes (comes with 1 modified tube). A durable, rubber recoil pad dampens recoil and helps shooter to stay on target for faster follow up shots. All 870 Express shotguns function with either 2-3/4" or 3" shotgun shells interchangeably. A myriad of aftermarket Remington 870 accessories enables owners to customize the 870 Express for specific purposes.

Look No Farther for a First Gun I cannot say enough about this gun. So many years ago, my uncle (a Legend waterfowl hunter in my area) offered to take me shooting for the first time- I used an old 410 gauge and was instantly hooked. He promised me my first hunt after Christmas and I asked my parents, with doubt of success, for my first shotgun. Well, I was wrong. My uncle told my parents exactly what to get me, a Remington 870 Express Youth. I opened up the box on Christmas morning and fell in love. The classic wood-finish and the unmistakable sound of pumping it gave me chills. What I didn't know was how beneficial this gun would be for my hunting, and shooting as a whole future. The gun is extremely easy to operate, clean, and repair. I was taking this gun apart and putting it back together almost immediately after reading the manual. I used this gun on countless hunts (duck, geese, quail, dove) and for countless hours on the local skeet range. I was young, and naturally I abused this gun; from being out in freezing rain for hours to shooting hundreds of rounds on the range on a sweltering summer day, but through everything this bad boy held through. The worst problem I had with this gun was some rust on the outside of the barrel (which quickly came off with some steel wool and elbow grease). I cannot recommend this gun enough for any youth entering the shooting world. My gun is now getting old, I take care of it and plan on passing it on to my son when he is ready. I loved this gun so much, I own a few different 870s which I currently shoot, though none come close to beating my good old 870 Youth. The only downside I can give: it is extremely addicting to shoot, you will be spending a lot on ammunition to fuel the new passion this gun will spark. If you are looking for a first gun for a special kid in your life (please ensure they are mature enough to handle the FIREARM and ensure you teach them gun safety and maintenance techniques) then look no farther than the Remington 870 Express Youth, it is nothing less than perfect.

870 20 ga youth best purchase yet!! I am having trouble keeping squirrels out of my pecan trees and wanted a shotgun to help me out. Went to Wal Mart looking for a 20 ga shotgun. All they had was this little youth model. I bought it just because that`s all they had. I got it home and the next day walked down in the woods behind my house and the first 5 shots killed 4 squirrels!! Devastating on them, man I love this shotgun. I never dreamed it would be so accurate and hold a pattern up to 40 yards and kill them dead. Best shotgun I ever bought, and I own 3 other 20 ga`s and a 12 ga, nothing will outshoot this little rascal!! Very light compact and versatile, little or no kick with high brass # 6 shot, just love it. Would highly recommend it to anyone!! Thanks Remington!! Joe October 16, 2013
easy for arthritic old timers to shoot clays My wife and I are slowing down, and this light shotgun is easier to shoulder and track clays than some of the others we checked. We both enjoy shooting it. It came with a removable choke, and there are several size chokes available. I now have three, the original modified, a cylinder and a full. It is a shotgun, so it can be used for hunting, targets, trap and clays. It’s a Remington 870, so there are plenty of instructional videos, local experts, etc. In a year, we’ve put at least 800 rounds through it, most #8 lead shot at clays, but also some buckshot and a few slugs, just to see what that did to pumpkins. We have had no problems. Field stripping and cleaning is easy, reassembly was a bit of work the first couple times, but I did see a few videos that were a bit better than the printed instruction. Now, it’s about 40 seconds to reassemble. I also like the trigger and pump release cover lock that came with the shotgun. A nice touch. I’d recommend the usual accessories, cleaning tools, brushes, bore snake, solvent and oil when purchasing. Don’t shoot slugs through the choke it comes with, get either a cylinder or skeet choke for slugs. January 31, 2015
awesome purchase I love this gun I bought it for my 13 year old shes had it for 2 years now and absolutely loves it it shoots nice and is perfect for her to carry around the woods. Great gun! July 24, 2013

A: 
The 870 Express comes with a modified choke only, Remington tells me. They quoted $39 for the IC choke and $69 for the FC. Retail stores have them for around $35 each. Be sure to get the right chokes for the shot shells you are going to use. The alternative is to buy the Remington model 870 Sportsman which comes with these 2 extra chokes for the same price as the Express plus after market chokes. The Sportsman comes with some bling on it too.

it depends on how much they have shot guns in the prior years. At fist for new comers maybe a little but will get use to it quickly, and if they have shot guns in prior years then they will most of the time have no problem

At 6 pounds you are going to be hard pressed to beat this great gun for your pre-teen. Even if it is troublesome to use this year, your child will have grown into it by next hunting season. Go for it!

A: 
Yes, this was my first gun and I used it on duck hunts and other waterfowl hunts for years. I even used it on dove hunts (extremely difficult with a pump I learned). The fact is, this is a learning gun for youths. Another answer explained that they prefer a semi-auto or over-under, which I do as well, but you don't want to give a youth (for their first shotgun at least) a semi-auto. Their natural instinct is to fire as quickly as possible at the bird until the gun is empty. By doing this "spray and pray" method they learn nothing. You want them to use a pump to learn to take slow, controlled shots which will improve their aim. Once they get their aim down you can go out and by them a good semi-auto (might I suggest the Beretta Silver Mallard?- it is my favorite gun and at a reasonable price at that). I would definitely say this is a good bird gun though, I killed a lot of ducks, geese, quail, and dove with this exact gun and never had a single problem with it.

Yes, go to the range first though. If you think you got a good score, then you should duck hunt.

A: 
Sure if you don't mind using a pump. I would use an over under, side by side or semi auto personally but a pump is fine if you're good at using it. Younger shooters are generally better with pumps as they are learning control.
