What the heck is this?!

I thought the 870 Marine Magnum ($450) was the only one available with the factory 7-shot magazine. And that PC crap about 870's not accepting LE accessories.

But what did I find at the local shop... an 18" parkerized 870 ($289) with the same mag extension as the Marine Magnum!

I can't remember correctly, but I think it also read "Super Magnum" on the left side of the reciever. Maybe, it just read "Express Magnum". Didn't think much of it when I saw it. But now, I can't remember.

Oh well, I guess I'll find out for sure when I pick it up.

The Super Magnum is the 870 chambered for 3.5" shotshells.

I just bought one and it is a great looking gun. Exactly like the Marine Magnum except not nickel. It says 870 EXPRESS MAGNUM on the side. You can't beat the price, I paid $280.00. It is basically the Home Defense shotgun with an extended mag. I guess since the extended mag is installed at the factory, you don't have to worry about a PC dimpled mag tube. The shop I bought it at also had an 1100 decked out the same way except it was $640.00! I'll stick with the 870.
