The Remington Model 870™ Pump-Action Shotgun is one of the most proven firearm’s designs in history. The 870 Express Compact is a rugged, value-priced workhorse, making it an extremely useful firearm for young people looking for their first gun, or experienced shooters of smaller stature. The versatile hunting shotgun can be used for hunting upland game, turkey, and deer, as well as a home defense shotgun, and informal clay pigeon shooting. At the heart of the ultra reliable 870 Remington is a receiver milled from a solid billet of steel for maximum strength, and twin action bars that prevent binding and twisting while cycling the action.
They come to the shooter’s shoulder and acquire targets instinctively, and handle well in the field. The Remington Model 870 Express Pump-Action Shotgun comes with a durable, checkered hardwood stock and fore-end with a non-reflective finish, and a matte blue/black, bead-blasted finish on the receiver and barrel. The butt-stock and barrel on the Compact model are slightly shorter than standard length to accommodate shooters of smaller stature. The barrel has a vent rib and a bead sight, and uses standard Rem™ Choke screw-in choke tubes. A durable, rubber recoil pad dampens recoil and helps shooter to stay on target for faster follow up shots. All 870 Express shotguns function with either 2-3/4″ or 3″ shotgun shells interchangeably. A myriad of aftermarket Remington 870 accessories enables owners to customize the 870 Express for specific purposes.
