I am going to change out the bolt when I do the new trigger plate.
All of the older 870s I have seen are good guns but since about the last 5-6 years they are junk

Nobody told you to I'm just saying what I know and I know the new 870 express' and new basic cheap 1187s are both junk and from what I've read there are a lot of people that agree with me...it don't matter I just traded mine off today anyway

There's a difference between the express and the super mag combo. Flat finish okay, but pay a bit more and you get a flat finish

And two barrels that will treat you right. I love mine... Wouldn't trade it. Had a bit of a jamming issue in the beginning but I'll chalk that up to breaking her in cuz she's the best interchangeable reliable shotty.
