What are your thoughts on the the 870? I am just looking for a cheap reliable shotgun and I'd like to hear what you have to say.

Knight-
Seems the 870 is the shotgun of choice among the operators out there. Look at Scattergun Technologies for tactical refinements; Vang Comp Technologies for recoil reduction and group size reduction.

I've got a 20 ga. 870 that I use for grouse hunting. Great gun. Never had any problems and love it.

I've got a 12 ga. 870 magnum express with a 18" vent rib barrel. It's a nice defensive weapon.
