Different chokes for different applications.the new remington 870 express tactical has a choke on it. what is the real point of this? and if u take it off will it still shoot fine? would there be better chokes to replace it with?
i'm curious and would appreciate some info on this, thanks!
Or buy one of the many mossbergs that do have their barrel threaded for choke tubes, like the 500, 535, 835, 930, and 935.the major upside of the 870 (over say the mossberg 590a1, which is a fantastic gun) is that it uses all rem chokes. so, you can use the 870 for home defense one day, and pheasant hunting the next. To have similar flexibility on the 590a1, you would have to get the barrel threaded.
You know, Im a big fan of Rem. I have a 870, 1100 and 11-87..but for the safety switch, I love my M500A1 over the Rem because Im a lefty and I can use my thumb to switch it to "fire" when I need to instead of go under the trigger gaurd to switch to fire. Thats one of the main reason why I have the M500 as my HD gun and the others as my hunting.And have the plastic safety break off when you need it most? No thanks. There's a good reason why Remington has sold over 10 million 870's!
Blah blah blah... I have a 500 12ga that finally (after almost 20 years) got the safety button broken. It took years (decades) of hard field use, two trips to the bottom of a lake and finally knocking it out of a gun rack onto a concrete walk between rounds of trap. But even with only half a button, it still works just fine.And have the plastic safety break off when you need it most? No thanks. There's a good reason why Remington has sold over 10 million 870's!
Yes. But you must've missed the part where I said that even with half a btton missing, the safety still operates just fine and has for a couple cases of shells since. So I guess it wouldn't really matter when it broke.Hooz, it broke, bottom line. It could happen anywhere, even at the worst possible moment. Perhaps newer models fixed the problem, don't know.
