Default Remington 887 Nitromag

Been looking at getting a pump shotgun to do some Dove hunting and skeet shooting. Saw an ad in American Rifleman about the 887 so I took a look at Remington's website to read up on it. Seems to be a pretty solid shotgun. Anyone heard anything about it, shot one, know someone who has one? Any information would be appreciated.

Here are a couple of links:

I've held one and I have to say its a wee bit sloppy on the forearm. and the forearm is also pretty big.(keep in mind 16 year old hands...not full grown) I was really looking to get it for hunting/skeet use as well but decided I will take care of my gun to much so i really dont need the ruggedness of it and its just really not a gun thats meant for skeet/trap.

It's a cool looking gun, but I have a few 870's already. Besides, I feel like I would be cheating on them if I strayed into the 887 line.

I have heard mixed reports from actual shooters so far. Keep in mind a gun writer never met a gun (made by an advertiser) that he didn't like. I haven't even seen one yet. They made it to appeal to the black plastic gun lover crowd, and it appears to be working well in that regard.
I have a blued steel and walnut Wingmaster so I don't need one.

I went to bass pro the other day and held one. The first thing I noticed was that it was REALLY light, much lighter than my Mossberg 500, which only has an 18.5 barrel and a top folding stock. One thing that I really like is that it has a fluorescent green front bead, and a fluorescent orange mid bead that is slightly lower than the front bead, makes for a nice sight. The only thing I didn't like, is when pushing the slide release, if you don't get your finger out of the way, the slide will pin it between the slide and trigger guard. But overall I like it, and it was only $339.99. I might head back over there tomorrow and pick it up depending on how my bank account looks.
