I own a Mossberg 500, but the next shotgun I buy will

probably be an 870. I'll be interested to see if the 500

has truly earned it's rep for bad recoil . . .

When i say hand made i mean somebody took the time to hand fit the pieces into the weapon. For a true fit to each individual firearm. If you wanna be smart about it.

I wasn't really asking for an explanation sense none was needed. Besides, I have enough common since than to argue.

New Remington 870's really do suck wind though. And I'd be happy to stop posting this picture if it weren't simply the answer to so many direct questions asked here.

Best generic all-around shotgun offering on the market today. Bar none. And that includes it having a questionable resin safety switch...

Lotta people other than Remington's 870 engineers and assembly-line workers seem to get it right. I'd buy and rely on the Norinco copy or any Made in Mexico shotgun before I'd accept a USA-made Remington 870 Express.

without concrete proof or evidence, simply saying Remington 870's suck wind is simply an unsupported statement and an opinion of yours. it's not based on anything but your opinions of Remingtons products.

as before, i have asked you several times to show some credible facts to support your statements, but as usual, you either ignore the truth or avoid facing facts. typical internet rumors and myths that you seem to want to advance for your own reasons, whatever they may be. hmmmm........

maybe other than spouting rumors and feeding internet hype and hoopla, maybe try proving your point. when you can't prove your statements, they tend to lack credibility. but you knew that didn't you?
