Hey guys, I am considering getting a Remington 887, anyone have one or shoot one. I found one brand new at Cabelas on sale for $319 is that a good deal and is this pump worth it for turkey, deer, and waterfowl??? Thanks

I own the Rem 887 Nitro Mag Tactical as one of my home defence weapons and I love it. Sounds like you have an opportunity to get a good deal.

Here is 10 pages on it. I have only handed one. Not my cup of tea but I can see a place for it.

Hmm I heard those 'nitro mags' (or at least the nitro mag tactical) Had a plastic barrel with a metal sheet? I understand how the rest of the gun is made, with the steel body and the ArmorLokt molded over it. Just wondering if the barrel is more plastic than metal?

Not sure about that, I don't have the tactical model I have the 26" barrel on it. In comparison when looking at where the actual barrel shows, on the muzzle end and the reciever end, the thickness is comparable to that of my Mossberg 535. I am not convinced that it is a plastic barrell layered upon a sheet of metal as the thickness at both end where the metal does show proves that theory to be miscontrued to say the least. One can argue all day long the they do not like the 887 for whatever reasons, but IMO it seems to be just what I was looking for in a second shotty and the characteristics of it are appealing to me in every aspect. I am proud to say I am a new owner of an M887, cant wait to bag a turkey and a few ducks with it this season.

Well I was curious, because when I bought my Mossberg500 a few months back, I actually went to get a Remington Nitro Mag tactical. I told the guy at the gun shop what I was looking for and he pretty much turned me away from the Remington (which was about $500) and gladly sold me the cheaper ($300) Mossberg 500. Maybe this guy just didn't like them to much, because he had other 870's and Remington on the wall.
I really like the Nitro mags 'futuristic' and agressive look. I might still be int he market for one. When I heard 'plastic barrel' and 'metal sheet' it just deferred me.

Blasted it off today, put 250 rounds through it shooting skeets and another box of 3 1/2 " mags to pattern it for turkey, not one single jam and she shoots and handles like a charm. I also fitted a limbsaver on it for those heavy turkey loads I use. All in All this shotgun is great not sure where the negative hype comes from, but I can tell you this, its just that, all hype from a bunch of people with only opinions and more than likely never even fired one. Like the saying goes about opinions, everbody's got one, indeed the ones who have clue are those aholes. Glad you like the 500 I had one when I was a kid and hunted the **** out of it, the tactical mossy 500 is a great firearm, enjoy!!!
