there are several good choices.
dont rule out the functionality of the factory stock.
Alot of people will go with a short LOP stock to allow them to square up more.
the pistol grip only is a bad idea. they cannot be shot accurately and they cannot be controlled properly.

the 870 is a good gun. Im more of a mossberg fan myself. I dont way the loading gate is on the 870.
agreed. I went to the store with the intention of purchasing an 870, but just did not like the controls. None of it made sense to me. Safety location, action release location, and I don't like the loading gate. Great shotguns with great reputations, but just not for me.

Bought a mossberg. Safety location, action release,and loading tray make much more sense, to me at least. That and I read too many things about the QC of the newer 870 expresses. Maybe i'll give an older used wingmaster a try.

Congrats on the new shotty. Just purchased one myself (a mossy). Was going to do a dual purpose type gun but then thought I'll get the HD shotty now and I'll have an excuse to buy another shotty when and if I get into hunting. Enjoy and happy shooting

I have the same, got it about 3 years ago for 500 something bucks. I have no issues with the grip and its as accurate as anything else. The only issues is that the 870 Express Super Magnum has issues shucking at times. But you may have gotten a lucky one. Did yours come with a full choke?
