I like the Remington 870's, and have had one since the mid 70's, (Wingmaster). With that said I prefer the Mossberg 500 or 590 Models for a home defense shotgun. I just think they are better suited for the task. I like the steel receiver of the 870, but I wish they would get away from that cheesy, cheap, stamped metal, double C-Clamp for attaching the barrel to the magazine tube. Especially on the Police Models. When you're paying that much for a self defense, Hi-Cap shotgun, it should have better manufacturing than that. If Mossberg can supply brazed, machined steel, double attachment points, a bayonet lug, and dual extractors for under $500.00, (590 A-1 Series), Remington should be able to for almost $200.00 more, (870 Police).

Billt, I think the 500/590 is a much more reliable gun than the more recent 870's. As for the price (given the shortcuts in features and finish) of the 870, SOMEONE has to pay for the Remington Racing Team, ads, etc...!
