Remington 870P: LE Model 24417 or 25047?

Post by ron4735 » Wed Mar 11, 2015 1:52 pm

I have decided to purchase either of these guns and need to know: 1) if viewers would choose the Parkerized/24417 or Marine finish/25047 if they wanted this 12 gauge only for home defense and occasional indoor range practice (I don't hunt); and 2) recommended reputable online dealers from which to purchase. I live near Louisville, KY and am thinking I should start my purchase options with a local volume dealer to support the local economy first. Thoughts, comments & suggestion very welcome! Thanks in advance.

I've been very happy with the durability of the parkerized finish on my 870P. Almost three years on, and not a single scratch after lots of shooting - and no babying of any sort. The Police Marine Magnum looks great, but I'd probably only go that route if I actually lived on/near the coast.

I ordered mine through Gallery of Guns, mostly because my LGS, at the time, waived their transfer fee for that particular dealer. No complaints on my end.
