Unfortunately the ignorant fail to realize the H&R Pardner is "made" by Remmington but why let facts get in the way. The 870 Express is not as reliable as the "Remmington Pardner" - if you want a "real Remmington" you should have purchased an used 870 Wingmaster. The new express is crude by comparison. Lack of quality control has made the Express subject to jamming. You will not find someone who owns a "Remmington Pardner" that does not like the gun - it is well made and reliable. That it costs at least 25% less is an added bonus.
