    Three weeks ago I bought an 870 Express Synthetic with Remington factory installed +2 tube extender (no dimples on this model), with 18″ barrel and front bead sight.

    $380US from Gander Mountain.

    Yesterday I was given one from a family member – go figure. It’s a 1970’s model with vented rib long barrel and wood stock/forend, standard capacity. Only shot about 6 times. Looks like I’ll have twins real soon. New barrrel is on the way along with a Choate tube extender (half the price of a Remington) and follower from Brownells. I’m going to try the Knoxx on one before I buy a second tactical stock.

      Thomas, thanks for your comment. Are there any differences between 1970’s model and 870 Express?

    I bought an 870 express from a local dealer (simmonssportinggoods.com) for $289.99. After tax it was a total of 318.99. They had a rebate for $30 going on too. So after I get that back, I will have paid $288.99 for it.

    I purchased a used Remington 870 tactical at a pawn shop in Fort Smith, Arkansas, for $279. I often see Remington 870 police models on AuctionArms.com. If you are successful in winning the auction, you should be able to get one at a cost below retail. Sometimes, these models have accessories, too. I’ve purchased a couple under $250.

    No major differences that I can immediately tell, beyond the obvious trimmings. The first that I looked for was the trigger assembly – looks to still be plastic. I’m also going on word that this is a 1970’s era gun.The follower is a gray plastic rather than orange. I’ll be examining it more as I begin rebuilding it into a HD version.

    Thomas, thanks. By the way, is it true that 1970’s receiver is little heavier than the 870 Express receiver?

    Vitaly, how would I check that? Wall thickness? Or just general feel? I know weighing them is the obvious answer, but I’ll need to disassemble them both down to matching stock parts (remove barrels, aftermarket followers, stocks and foreneds, etc.) to do that. That may happen soon. I’ll also try to photo document all the before and after pics of my rebuilds and send them to you.

    Here in Sweden a new 870 Express with vented rib long barrel cost $710 US from torsbohandels.com, one of the major gun dealers.

    I bought a used 1974 870 Wingmaster in good condition, I payed $217 US.

    Thanks Vitaly for this site, I like it a lot.

    The 1970s 870 will have an aluminum Trigger plate assembly while the newer Express models have trigger plate assemblies made form polymer. Additionally, the older 870 most likely will not have the flexitab carrier kit which consists of the U-notched flexitab carrier assembly (elevator), and modified slide and breech block assemblies. The older 870 will have a milled extractor, whereas the Express models have MIM extractors.

    Milled extractors are relatively inexpensive, while the flexitab conversion kit is somewhat expensive.

    Polymer trigger plate assemblies may be better than the aluminum part, and MIM extractors appear to hold up just fine. The flexitab carrier system makes it easier to correct a double-feed situation where a shell slips back out of the magazine and between the carrier and bolt, although not totally necessary as there is a satisfactory procedure for 870s without flexitabs: engage the safety; point the shotgun muzzle up with the offhand firmly grasping the forend and the other the grip of the butt stock; and then firmly drive the butt of the weapon against the ground or other solid object while simultaneously depressing the action bar release. This action will bring the action safely to the rear and clear the double feed.

    I believe this “1970s” era gun was in fact made closer to 1999 due to the polymer injection stamp on the trigger assembly saying “99” and pointing to 2.

    I used the barrel code to date my 870 Wingmaster since all indicates my barrel is the same as when it left the factory. Information on how to find out the month and year of manufacture of your barrel can be found at the Remington Society of America website

    The question of the price of a new 870 here in the US is a little bit like the question of the price of a new Chevrolet or Honda; there are so many models and options that prices can range widely. As I said in my introduction I got interested in 870s researching the Norinco 982 Hawk shotgun for a friend. It’s a high quality 870 copy with an 18.5 inch barrel, synthetic stock, 5 +1 capacity, ghost ring sights, milled extractor and metal trigger guard. I wound up buying one at Big 5 for $199.97. I will be getting better sight screws, a Wilson one round extension with sling swivel, S&J follower, Wolff magazine spring, rear sling swivel and a Remington 870 Police forend. These parts are going to cost me another $90 or so.
    The two genuine Remingtons most similar to my lightly modified Hawk are the 870 Express Tactical Model 81198 and the 870 Police Magnum Model 24421. They both have 18.5 inch barrels, synthetic stocks, 6+1 capacity, a Parkerized finish and rifle (or ghost ring) sights. The Police Magnum also has a metal trigger guard and a milled extractor, like my Hawk, while the Express does not. Buds Guns listed the 870 Express Tactical for $469 recently and a number of internet gun shops have priced the Police Magnum for around $650-700. I would want to upgrade either Remington with an S&J follower and Wolff spring; which would add another $20 to their cost.

    New 870 Express Home Defense models here in Texas run around $280 for 5 shot model without magazine extension and $330 for 7 shot with +2 factory magazine extension. Express tactical models are between $400-$600 depending on sights, stocks, barrels, choked andfinishes. Police models are $600 and up. I’ve had good luck finding used 870P agency trade-ins condition “carried much, fired little” for well under $300 and they make great project shotguns. I’m kicking myself for passing up a parkerized Police Magnum in used but like new condition for $300 with 18.5″ improved cylinder with rifle sights and meprolight night sights factory installed. I was looking for something else at the time and was more focused on that! Interestingly enough I just saw a brand new Express Tactical model with the latest Blackhawk knoxx stock design stock installed an sporting a newly designed FIXED 6 shot magazine tube! It was about $519.

    I have bought several used 870 express shotguns for between $165-260.00 in Colorado. They’re very common in pawn shops and the used section of gun stores. Walmart sells a tactical version (synthetic furniture, +2 extension, 18″ barrel, bead sight) for around 600.

    I do the same thing as above and look locally for police trade in guns. These are great project guns and when I get through with it it is better than new.

    I detail stripped the entire shotgun, its in rough shape, but nothing a good cleaning won’t clear up (I hope).

    Vitaly,
    In the past few weeks, a local farm store in Fort Smith, Arkansas, began advertising the Remington Model 870™ Express® Synthetic 7-Round shotgun for $373.95. That’s about what I paid for my first one back in 2009 in San Antonio, Texas, at a gun show. The MSRP off the Remington.com Web site is $443. If you look around on some gun auction sites, you can find the same shotgun, usually in decent shape, for much less. Right out of the box, the Express 7-rounder is a good home-defense shotgun, but it’s also a great platform for customizing.

    Price Drop. I cannot post the actual advertisement, but Atwood’s, a farm-and-ranch store in Fort Smith, Arkansas, now is advertising the Remington 870 Tactical 12 gauge Express pump for $359.99. This is a drop from $379.99 from a few weeks ago. Vitaly, how many do you want me to send you?
