My wife bought me one for Christmas last year and I love it! I have taken it goose and turkey hunting so far with only one issue. Don't use Fiocchi ammo! My jamed off one shell. Shoots 3 1/2 with no issues, only part I hate it getting the bolt back on the rails when you clean it.

Shot mine yesterday. 20 rounds of 2 3/4 target loads and 5 of military grade 3" 00 buckshot. Haven't tried the 3 1/2, not sure I want to. Great, no probs, reasembly is a bit tricky, but not too bad Its easy compared to a ruger mark ii.

Bump. Old thread I know, new issue. Anyone know if there is an extended mag tube available for the 887?
I picked up one today, and shot 25 rounds flawlessly through it. Mine is the tactical model which has the 2 round factory extension screwed in so I can fit 7 rounds in the tube, and one in the chamber.

bumping this one up, i'm looking for a 887 mag extension. anyone have any suppliers? finding one online is about as hard as pulling a grown man's teeth!

870 mag extensions wont work, right?

I'm not sure about going larger than the factory tube but you can google the Remington parts list and get the part # from that then order through Remington. I haven't been able to find any third party aftermarket options for the 887.
