I bought a new 870 Express HD several weeks ago and have put about 175 rounds through it. I bought it for HD and target shooting with my kids. Here are some things that I really don't like about the gun: -- I hate the trigger. I don't like the feel of it on my finger. Basically it's a crappy trigger compared to other guns I've shot. Not a comfortable trigger at all. It seems rough on the trigger edges and it feels too small. Also it doesn't have a smooth action to it. -- I don't like the almost sharp edges on the sides of where you insert the shells into the magazine. I guess I'll have to fine-sand or steel wool or dremel the edges to smooth them out but don't know how to do it without messing it up. It feels like I'm going to get a cut on the sides of my thumb when I insert shells. -- I don't like the sight. I guess I can switch the out but not sure how to do it. -- I don't like the matte finish on the gun. Feels like it could scratch easier or even wear-off easily than a smooth finish -- maybe I'm wrong. Please tell me I am. Other than these things, I totally love the gun. I'm now hooked on shotguns. It's operated like it should without a hitch. Other than the things mentioned above, it's a solid gun and fun to shoot. Just my thoughts.
