With continually evolving designs, rugged dependability, great pointing characteristics and versatility, the Model 870 has been the standard for slide-action performance for almost 60 years. Beneath the no-nonsense, ready-for-work exterior of the Model 870 Express lies the same quality, precision, and dependability that you'll find in Remington's legendary Model 870 Wingmaster, but at a much more affordable price. Like all Model 870 shotguns, this workhorse features a receiver milled from a solid billet of steel for maximum strength and reliability. The silky-smooth twin action bars prevent binding and twisting so that you'll always have the chance to get off a second shot. The virtually indestructible synthetic version of the 870 Express has a butt stock and forend that stay dimensionally stable, and won't swell or crack due to weather extremes. The stock and all metalwork have a black matte non-glare finish. This 12-gauge model features an 18" barrel with a fixed cylinder choke and a single bead sight and holds up to 7 rounds of ammunition.
