    Stick with an 870, parts may be an issue in the long run.

    Love my 870 but I have to say the Escorts look cool; I would say stick with what is tried and true though.

    A happy owner of the semi-auto version here. About 400 rounds through it without a single issue. 2.75" and 3" both have fed/fired/extracted as expected. Chrome lined chamber and barrel, hi-vis sights and a price that made an auto shotgun available to me. I had my eye on the Weatherby SA-459 and once I found out this was the exact same gun without the extra $100 for the Weatherby name stamped on it, I went out on that limb. Glad I did. One of the main reasons for looking at this was that I plan to share this gun with the wife and daughters. For them, a standard 14.5" LOP was too much and the Escort comes standard with 13.5" LOP. Add to that the recoil absorbing SA action, and this is now our primary HD weapon.
