View Full Version : Price check for NIB Rem 870?

February 22, 2002, 05:51 PM
I've got an opportunity to pick up a NIB Remington 870 for $200. Is this a decent price? This is one of those deals that even though I don't really 'need' another shotgun, I've always kind of wanted either a Moss 500 or Rem 870... So, whadya think?

Oh my gosh, that's a terrible price. He's trying to rip you off. Give me his number and I'll save you from this purchase. ;)

Actually, that's a very good price. The cheapest I've ever seen them here was just before deer season and they were $210. I'd jump on that bargain. You can never have too many guns.:D

I bought a 12ga. 870 Express Magnum on sale for $199.95 marked down from $229.95

In 1993.

I've been shopping around for one in central NC and am not able to find one for less than 270 or so.

Thanks guys! I'll try to let you know how it turns out. Should be picking it up in the next week. :)

Good price. I paid $195 ($210 with tax) and thought I got a great deal.

NC-VT, try a Wal-Mart for an Express..

Gizmo, why do you say east coast only, are the priced different that the rest of the chain? I know around here (WA) the express at Wally costs $300 for 12 ga. and $250 for 20 ga.

Adam, the poster in North Carolina has NC-VT as his handle...


BTW, those prices are a bit high for South Carolina.. Here, most 870 expresses are in the $244.00 and up range..

I just bought an NIB Rem 870 Express from Sports Authority for $239 before tax and background check here in Florida. That was the best price I could find on a new one. Walmart had them for $244. Mine came with a 28" barrel with a replacable modified choke. It also has the new lockable safety and the dimples in the magazine tube (since dremeled off for the addition of an extended magazine).

Well I'll be. I guess we all have to feel stupid at least once a day :). It is a dececptive name though, you've at least got to give me that.

In the Pacific Northwest the Bi-Mart chain has the Express models on sale until the 27th.

3" Chamber = $219
3.5" = $259

These are the standard models with the wood stocks. Not sure how many choke tubes they come with. Good price though. They also have 10/22's for $129

I don't work there, but I do like the store. They have helpful salespeople that know their stuff. Too bad they don't sell handguns anymore (they used to).
