I have owned a number of 870's and the one I have now is an 870 Express Mag and it was made in 1996 and it has a Walnut stock. You should consider what you plan on using it for and go from there but I will say the camo versions are sharp looking. And do you want to shoot 2 3/4, 3 inch or even the 3 1/2 mags ?? And if you want to customize it the choices are almost endless.There are several models. Which one suggested without the camo or other weird designs?
