My FIL and son both have the 870. One is a youth model 20 and my FIL keeps his deer barrel on fulltime. Not a big fan of the 870 because it recoils significantly harder than my 1300 used to with the same slugs.
Well im not going to use slugs in my shotgun its going to be for small game like birds and rabbits

The Mosberg Maverick I also heard was a pretty good gun don't know have not owned one but it like 180 dollars but you can get chokes pretty easy for the Mosberg or the Remington so if want to hunt duck you will have to change your choke our for one you can shoot steel thru also change it out for skeet my Mosberg 835 don't kick near as much as my buddy's 870 does

I have a used '76 Wingmaster Magnum, in cherry condition, I bought for $240. Came with a 28" fixed Full. I installed a 30" Light Contour with Remchokes. I wasn't really concerned about the money, just wanted to get exactly what I wanted. It's my 6th 870. Five Wingmasters and one early Express. All 12s.
My other Remingtons are all 1100s. 20,28, 12, and 3"- 12.

. Sorry for the late response, I'm pretty sure I got it while on sale, but finding one for around $300 is not rare. As fir it's reliability, I have had no issues with mine, and I'm sure it will outlast you, as they have been making it's twin, the wingmaster for 50 years. (The wingmaster is just a prettier version of the express, the one I have. The express is made of much less expensive wood, making it the cheaper if the two.) I would definitely recommend getting one.

let's put it this way, it certainly isn't Remington (the new company) or Mossberg. Favorite!?! - The B-guns...

Sounds like you want to keep cost low and want to hunt birds and rabbits. I would go with an auto loader. Check out Mossberg and Stoeger. You can also look at used Remington and Winchester.
