Remington 870 shotgun is used for target practice, hunting, competitive shooting, and home defense. Although there are many different versions of the Remington 870, one of the most popular versions is the Remington 870 Express Combo. This shotgun is suitable for virtually all kinds of shooting.
The forend and stock are made of weather resistant synthetic material. The grip panels on the stock are textured to make gripping easier.
The interesting feature of the Remington 870 Express Combo is its two barrels, which is why it is called a “Combo” shotgun. If you’re interested in hunting with this weapon, you can use the 26-inch long vent rib field barrel that comes with it. If you simply want to use the weapon for home defense, then you can use the basic 18.5-inch long barrel. Since the shotgun has 3-inch chambers, this allows you to use the weapon for defending your home, sports shooting, or hunting game in the woods. That is why it is often called a multi-purpose shotgun.
The price of the Remington 870 Express Combo is $379.44. It comes with one Modified Choke Tube from Remington. The weapon weighs a total of 7.5 pounds and its total length is 46.5 inches or 38.5 inches, depending on which barrel you have installed. The weapon has a black matte finish and the length of pull is 14 inches. This should be long enough to accommodate the average shooter’s size.
If you wish to add any additional accessories like a scope, it will need to be mounted on the receiver. The barrels don’t have any place available for accessories to be mounted on it. There are instructions that come with the weapon which can advise you on this. Otherwise, just hire a gunsmith or gun shop professional to do it for you.
