Is the H&R pardner pump protector reliable as the Remington 870
 
is it worth the extra 200$ for the 870 than the Pardner Pump Protector is the H&R as reliable as the 870?

I would take the Pardner over the 870 Express FOR THE SAME PRICE as the 870! I believe it is MORE reliable...

the H&R is that cheap because it is made in china, & by all accounts, most parts are interchangeable between an 870 & a Pardner pump. I've handled a few of them & they feel like solid guns & most reports I've read say they will anything an 870 will.

I'm sure H&R (oddly enough Remington/marlin owns them) had them made overseas to try & compete & maybe get a leg up in the pump shotgun game

I would skip them both and get a mossberg 500 or maverick 88 for a lot less.

I have sold several H&R's and have shot them. When I tore them down it appeared the parts were interchangeable with the 870. They are a GREAT value! :)

I don't know where you get a Maverick for less than the Partner???
My cost on the Partner is 165 and the Maverick is 190!!!!:confused:

i could depend on my H&R like if it were an 870?

The h&r is the most reliable gun I've ever owner shot around 2000 rounds and she still loves to chew up bird loads buckshot and turkey loads! Best 180 I have ever spent

I have a Pardner Protector, and I love it. It is extremely well built, and it shoots very well. The quality for the price is very, very good. Its not cheaply built, it's simply a well built gun at a good price. It's considered to be considerably better than the current Remington 870 Express as far as steel used, reliability, etc. Google it. I debated over whether to go with the Maverick 88 or H&R, and after doing a lot of reading, I decided to get the H&R. It's solid steel, and it will accept all aftermarket parts from the 870 except the barrel... different barrel lug placement makes them incompatible. Also, as far as price, the Pardner is priced about the same, or cheaper, as the Maverick 88 (at least in my area). I got mine for $179 new, and the cheapest Maverick 88 I've seen in my area was $199. My recommendation is read some reviews online and try to find one to handle in a store to see if you like it. Check out the Maverick 88 also, you might like that as well.
