My son and I both have the long barrel Remington 870 and love hunting with it. Reply Alexander Brown21.06.2014 at 07:03 I personally like the short barrel Remington 870. I’m not that knowledgeable with weapons but I think that you can use the short one for close range hunting, can’t you? I’m actually curios: what range does the short barrel Remington have? It seems great for home defense especially after you add a 6 shell holder (that would make it look so awesome). Reply Collins Bruer24.06.2014 at 15:13 I recently added a plus 2 magazine extension to my 870. Is there anything available to reduce this to a 3 shell limit if I should want to hunt with it? Reply Vitaly Pedchenko25.06.2014 at 00:06 You just need to remove magazine extension and insert magazine plug: http://tinyurl.com/max9do4 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
