Remington 870 Express Tactical Video Review

Tactical Shotguns
Since this is the "Tactical" shotgun forum, I figure this is the right place!

I was looking for a shotgun that I could use for HD/SD that would also have the ability to get consistent hits on a man size target at 50-75 meters; all while not breaking the bank. The Remington 870 Express Tactical has filled that role and done it well.

I didn't bring any slugs for this video but have shot them out of this gun in since and it easily does what I've asked of it (hits on a man size target at 50-75m). Every shotgun barrel shoots different loads differently and this gun is no exception. I've tried two brands of slugs and both shoot high (about 8'' at 50m) while the buckshot loads pattern at point of aim. I don't think it's an issue as long as the shooter is aware and holds low appropriately.

Initially I planned on only posting the shooting portion of this video but I received a lot of negative comments about the Express line of 870 line on the forums when I said I was going to review this gun so I added some content about the differences. I've heard on the forums that Remington's QC has been a little spotty of late but I haven't experienced that myself all....

Anyway, here's the video:

Thanks. I went out yesterday to do a review of the new Bushnell First Strike red dot on this shotgun and it was a catastrophic failure. I'll probably get it all edited and up tomorrow or Tuesday.....

Edit--here it is:
