Yes, the owner's manual is wrong for 11-87 20 gauges. You should remove it for heavy loads. I would only put it in if I was having issues with light loads. You can usually get an O ring at any...

I have never seen an 1100 or 11-87 that needed or benefited from any break in in 52 years. I dare say I have seen more than whoever is answering the phone at Remington. The preservative they use on...

A GOOD repeater is better than a cheap O/U. You do not need an O/U to shoot clays. They are more popular with the hard core because a) you don't have to pick up empties, and B) they are the...

The 11-87 likely has a barrel date code on the left side just in front of the receiver. But, if it looks good it probably is good.

I had a '74 Wingmaster Magnum, bought brand new for $150, that I shot better than any other gun I have ever owned. I sold it in the early '80s in a blinding flash of stupidity. Six tries later I...

Sorry to be cynical, but I can't think of anything easier than shooting a bird on the ground with a shotgun. The actual shooting is the easiest part of turkey hunting. And, you are shooting it like...

Well, the accountants are running everything. One of my daughters is an accountant, licensed CPA, and the other is a licensed architect. I was shocked at how much the accountant made.

It does explain why Ruger couldn't solve their O/U issues. They set a cost ceiling and they just couldn't do it under that ceiling. I don't get it. With the way everyone was jumping up and down...

Wipe it off and don't put dings that go through the finish on it. And don't get some bore cleaners, or naptha, MEK, or lacquer thinner on it. It's polyurethane.

I'd go with the 12 gauge 11-87. They are solid guns and Remington customer service is excellent if you ever should need it. True, some 11-87s don't like light loads, BUT there's an easy and...

I wouldn't swap a Mossberg 500 or an 870 Express even for a 1400. The 1400 guy would have to pony up some bucks.
