    Picked up a compact Remington 1187 Sportsman in 20 gauge for my wife today. Walmart was clearing them out for $250! I know folks say that Big Green's quality has slipped, but I'll take a chance at that price.

    I was interested in those way back when. I think they are pretty good stuff. Twenty gauge too! Sounds like you did good!

    When Walmart did that with AR-type rifles a few years ago, it meant they were done selling them. Same deal now on all semi-auto actions?

    Congrats! Was it already rusting?

    No, this is just their annual clearance. They told me that they had a couple of 1187s and a Savage 17HMR that were clearance at that particular location.

    Can’t beat that.

    I have a Cerberus 870 and 700 varminter .223. Both are very well made and work fine. The 870 will get surface rust if it gets wet and I don’t wipe it off. But that’s my only complaint. A blued 1911 will do the same thing.

    The problems are overblown in my opinion. You only ever hear about the duds. It’s like Exeter Sigs. 99 percent of them are high quality, well made and have no issues. But every person that gets a bad one posts about it online.

    I don't know, but I checked a few different SKUs for Ruger 10/22s, and one of them came up at 50% off (but sold-out) at a few stores, but other stores in the same area still showed them at normal price.

    EDITED TO ADD:

    Well, that explains the price difference between stores. Thanks.

    Awesome. Oil it up quick, probably dry as bone if it's like the ones we get in.

    Some are reporting that the 870 Express is being cleared out at $139 at their local Walmart. Add the $50 mail in rebate from Remington and you can get in for less than $100!

    Unfortunately for me, the $50 rebate doesn't apply to the 1187 models...

    I bought my Colt 6920 on sale at Walmart.

    I still buy Remingtons higher end models such as the Premiere, Police, and Wingmaster models as the quality of those is just as good as ever IMO.

    It’s the Express line that I don’t buy any longer, but I have also heard they have improved them recently.

    I would be curious to hear how it shoots.

    My Remington 1187 Premiere in 20g is my favorite shotgun. Soft shooting, reliable, and absolutely beautiful blued finish and wood.

    I can hang with the Beretta Silver Pigeon crowd at any shoot.

    Score! I love my 1100’s which I think are the same thing just less fancy.

    Glad you posted this.I was curious if the 1187 was the equivalent of the 870 express just in an automatic.The reason being I had 3 Remington 870 express guns that all rusted in just a few years and 2 of them were never even shot and oiled every 2 or 3 months.My 40 year old wingmaster doesn't have any rust and it was in the rain on quite a few hunts.

    Nothing fancy about these... matte black finish with black synthetic stock.

    I would say these are similar to the Express finish. It is a matte black, but much smoother. For the price paid, I'm not too concerned. It won't be a hard use gun, a weekend now and then shooting clays. If it becomes an issue, I can get it cerakoted or dipped.

    Use brickseek.com... you can find deals on there, just need the UPC or SKU of the item you are interested in.
