Remington 870 the world record holder

Post by Niner » Sat Oct 17, 2020 3:11 pm

As of 2009 and made from 1950 by Remington over 10 million 870's in slightly different purpose built forms have been made. The military, the police, the hunter, the skeet shooter all have slightly dressed versions. Mine is my heavy artillery home defense weapon of choice with buckshot. Mine is a standard Express which is probably the cheapest version.

Here is the other popular 12ga shotgun, Mossberg claims to have sold over 12 million of
their Mossberg 500 line. I have this one for home defense, 8-shot (7+1 using 2 ¾" shells) with the collapsible
stock. Loaded with 00 buck. It does have a scope rail for those long range sniper shots...... :lol:
Only keep 4+1 in it to protect the spring from compression. I figure if I need more than 5 rounds, it has gone
from home defense to a firefight, then it's time for my 7.62 AR or .308 HK91...... :mrgreen:
Of course I'm kidding, am just too old for that kind of shit.

Peace is that brief, quiet moment in history.......... when everybody stands around reloading.

My favourite was an Ithica M37 with a 20-inch barrel and a full magazine; when we were allowed such things.

Remington is going bankrupt again and their home plant in Ilion NY is on the block. However, there is some talk of opening that plant up again. And what are they going to produce? Not Bushmaster black guns that got them in a bind over crazy people doing mass murder.
One likely product would be Remington’s Model 870 shotguns, said Jamie Rudwall, a district representative for the union. He said the new owners can rely on a trained workforce to produce shotguns for a hot market.

The FBI reports that it has processed more background checks to purchase or possess a firearm in the first nine months of 2020 than any previous year.

“We certainly have that capability of putting every single person back to work at 870s making literally between 1,200 and 1,800 every day. And every one of them will be sold,” said Rudwall, who once worked at the plant.
