887 12 gauage..Thoughts?

Postby hunthard2 » Tue Mar 18, 2014 1:56 pm

Hey all, I posted a thread similar to this in the Guns and Ammo section but due to a time sensitive matter I wanted to get your insight as soon as possible. Has anyone every owned a Remington 887? Love it? Hate it? I read reviews about problems with misfiring and shell jamming but many absolutely loved the gun. I should mention it is used. Thanks for any thoughts you share!

Sorry, wish I could help you, but I have no first hand knowledge with an 887.

I'm with Ohio...I've never actually heard of a Rem 887... I love my 870 pump though

Basically the 887 is a souped up version of the 870, with a higher price tag to match the camo, hi-viz sites, and the added gimmick features such as the "Nitro" and the "Bone Collector" name tags attached. It is only available in 3" and 3 1/2" chamberings. I haven't personally shot one, but according to what I've heard they aren't any better or worse than an 870, just overpriced.

From what I've seen in the Blue Book of Gun Values, since the model was introduced in 2010, it's comparative used values are about the same as the 3 1/2" model 870, which isn't so good when considering the difference in the new gun price between the two models. If I were considering purchasing a used one, I'd negotiate for a price more in line with a used model 870 and if I were buying a new one, I'd try to get it for about the same price as a new 870 rather than the MSRP.
