    Thinking of picking up a used one for a build. What is a reasonable price?

    Depends on which 870. I paid $225 for one of my WM's and $190 for the other that needed a little work. I wouldn't pay much for an express model.

    I paid $350 for an 870 Magnum lightly used, but it came with original & Hogue furniture, mag extension, side saddle, 150+ #00 shells, hard case, and multiple barrels.

    Because everything included was stuff I would've bought for it myself(aside from the case perhaps), I considered it a good buy.

    I picked up 2 used 870's from pawn shops last month. One was a super mag with 2 barrels for 215.00 but the stock had some scratches which I am refinishing. But otherwise flawless. The second was a 870 Turkey gun with a 21 inch barrel and the receiver is tapped for a rail for 220.00 in flawless condition. The deals on them are out there, just have to look around.

    The past two used ones I have paid $120 for each. Now, they needed a new follower, a spring or two and heavy cleaning. I am looking for another one now and being patient. Need another 20" barreled car gun.

    $190 for the Walmart Magnum Express in a bank parking lot. Sat much, shot little... About 10 rounds through it. The famous rust prone finish responded well to a Corrosion X rubdown. It's got a smooth action for a newer one.

    I recently paid $260.00 OTD for a 1989 made Remington 870 Express with an 18'' barrel. The gun is mechanically like new. He previous own, who is a big shotgun shooter, bought it as a HD gun. This gun "may" have had 20 rounds fired thru it.

    It has a metal trigger guard, detent ball on the barrel, and no dipples on the mag tube.

    Good find! Two items that I like are the Vang Stainless follower as the Remington plastic can scratch and hang up as well as the Big Head Safety. Good additions for not much $.

    Update, I started the wait yesterday for a PD trade in 870 and it turns out its a Magnum too! Cant beat the price it has wood furniture for now. I will try to post pics when I get it home.

    Police trade in for $100 is a good price.

    Local shop has 2 with rifle sights for $200 each.

    Are they still letting law abiding citizens buy guns down there in the Peoples Republic of Illinois?

    Yes they are. And if it was not for my job we would have moved years ago.

    Pics I have to figure out how to with my new Mac.
