The only shotgun I ever carried in combat was a 590A1. They made us start carrying them after some dip**** ran up an one of our vehicles w/ a grenade. Just one more piece of issued gear to clean and keep track of.

870 Tactical (no mods). It is my only shotgun, so I guess that makes it my favorite.

My favorite 'fighting' shotgunS (yes, plural!) are Remington 870s.

The 870 Wingmaster "Police" that I got at a gunshow. (LNIB)
The day I got it:
Tactical Shotguns
Tactical Shotguns


I removed the 20" 'cyl' barrel and put an 18-1/2" 'IC' barrel on it, plus a Wilson +2 extenstion.
The 870 Express has an 18-1/2" barrel w/+2 Wilson Extension.

All are stoked full of Federal 00B w/flite control wad.
(Patterns real nice at 21'!)

I guess I have, Rooster. The first shotgun the Army gave me was a Winchester M-12 with the perforated handguard and bayonet lug. Great gun...but the extractor eventually broke. They gave me a rickety Savage-Steven pump...an M-77 maybe? Then I went on an R&R and when I got back I drew an Ithaca 37, and it was flat-out the best of all. Light, easy-to-carry and quick to shoot and reload.

After I got back home and became a cop, I bought an Ithaca 37 LAPD contract over-run, 18.5-inch barrel, rifle sights with a Ray-Bar orange pyramid on the front. Carried it for 27 years through thick and thin. I retired it and replaced it with an 18.5-inch 590-A1 a few years before I retired. Still use the Ithaca during deer season. The 590-A1 is resting comfortably in a corner a few feet away loaded with low-recoil Federal Tru-Ball slugs.

I have heard this so many times on the internet, I have yet to have any issues with mine. I must have got a super special one.

I have heard that there is a possibility that older ones were finished better and that Remington quality control may have slipped. Things might be a bit spotty or there could be some out there from a bad patch in QC.

Do you think that just might be possible?

The overall quality has went down at least comparing the two I've owned

Used the 870 with the dept, but liked the action of my personel M500 better at the time. I probably took better care and lubed mine more than the dept did theirs, so that might have been the reason.

I like the position of the safety with the M500 better. We trained to shoot either L or R to maintain the best cover...both pistol and SG.
