Dave, there's a difference between "low bid" and the cheapest gun available. If you've been around government procurement procedures, you know that an invitation to bid can be tailored to favor a specific model and disqualify others (Mavericks). IMHO, being a popular cruiser gun doesn't make the R-870 the best choice as a sporting gun. And, I like to think, neglect, zero maintenance and abuse typically aren't problems with sporting arms. But, on the other hand, we have a thread about a poorly functioning R-870 that has a mysteriously dented receiver.
