What is the difference between a Remington 870 Wingmaster and an Express?
There are all kinds of shotguns you can choose from when it comes to self defense or hunting. The only thing shotguns have in common is they do a lot more damage to your target than traditional handguns. Most people these days use shotguns more for hunting rather than self defense, but there are still some old school gun enthusiasts who use shotguns for both. You might think that it doesn’t matter which shotgun you use for self defense, but there are some differences between certain shotgun types that could affect your decision.
The Remington 870 Express Magnum shotgun one of their more popular pump-action shotguns and is used primarily for hunting, self defense and sport shooting. In addition, it is a very common weapon used by the military and law enforcement organizations.
The Remington 870 Express Youth Pump Action shotgun is a 20-gauge special that not too many people know about. Of course, most people are familiar with the Remington 870 shotgun model because it has been around for roughly 60 years. The 12-gauge Express, however, is what most people are familiar with. The Express Youth Pump Action is a 20-gauge with a design that’s proved reliability over the years. It has great versatility and shooting characteristics. The slide-action performance of the 870 Express Youth gives you fantastic reliability and dependability while you’re shooting the weapon. If you’ve ever used a Remington 870 before, then you’ll love the look and feel of the Remington 870 Express Youth because they are very similar in both design and quality.
