I was at wal mart the other day and saw an all camo 1187, 3 inch for under $600. I looked on gun broker and I have access to see some guns' wholesale price and I don't see anything in camo from the 11-87 line that even comes close to this. Is this because wally world buys large amounts or should I be skeptical for some reason.

Don't be skeptical. It is the same gun that you will pay 1/3 more for anywhere else. WM buys these by the boxcar load. I have one of them and it is great. The 11-87 is a little heavy for upland hunting but it is a great, reliable shooter that will cycle anything you feed it.

Don't be skeptical about WM guns. They had better be top quality or WM will cancel their contract.

That's within $50 of what an nice used Premier goes for around here. That's a good price, especially if you're looking for camo.

My brother can get me an SX2 winchester 3.5shells for about $600. He is a cop and can get some stuff wholesale. I have a bunch of chokes and scope mounts for remington, anybody have an opinion on this. I don't think I need 2 guns that can shoot 3.5 but I guess it would be nice.
Thoughts?

Personally I would rather have the Remington 11-87. I can foresee that Winchester is going to be rather rare in the future. I know that Browning bought the rights to the Super X but Browning is the dominant brand. Remington parts will always be available. Winchester? Maybe, maybe not.

Browning changes manufacturers from time to time so I think I will stay with Remington.

A good used Remington 11-87 can be had for between $300-400 and will last forever if taken care of. All guns usually need a part now and again. That is why I prefer Remington.

Also, I doubt that you will ever need 3 1/2" loads. They are not used much in the real world. They make for good advertising but I have never seen a 3 1/2" shell. I have had great luck with 2 3/4" for my shooting needs. I have shot 3" but not any more.

I have an 870 that shoots 3.5 shells and I have used them for geese. But stopped buying them because fo the price and I agree the 3 inch do just fine. I am just wanted an auto for dove and for duck and goose when I have my 870 scoped for deer.

Does anyone know if they still make 11-87s with wood stocks?

Remington's website confuses me. Unless I am missing something, every model 11-87 they list only comes in synthetic or camo. And yet, they have a picture of an 11-87 with a wood stock on the same page as the model list! So what's the deal?

My son's 11-87 doesn't cycle low based shells. He has to use hi-based shells for it to work properly. My 1100 shoots anything in 2 3/4 length from low base to magnum.
