Default Just picked up a Remington 870 magnum

As you know i asked around a few days ago for a shotgun in the $300 range. Went to a gun show today and looked around at the mossbergs and 870 and they were way overpriced. Found a casual Remington 870 in the back for $345 but got it down to $320. It doesn't have any tactical accessories but I will add a few. Wood is amazing. It is used but looks awesome and the seller said only a box was put through it. Pictures to come.

I've had my 870 since '92. Love it. Mainly use it with the 20" barrell. So far I have resisted my son's opinions that it needs a black buttstock and foregrip. I have my share of black rifles and this lady just looks good the way she is.
