Hi everybody,
What would you recommend me getting between those two shotguns, when it comes to quality, maintinance, etc?

12 ga. blued finish, wood stock, 28" VR barrel with white front bead, Mod, Full and IC Accu-choke tubes., everything from light 2 3/4-inch loads to heavy 3 1/2-inch., and you can install a scope on it if you want also.
Price $235 brand new.


Remington Express 870 (but it says Magnum on it as well)
12 ga. non-reflective black matte metalwork and a no-frills satin finish hardwood stock and fore-end., 28" barrel, everything from light 2 3/4-inch loads to heavy 3 inch., can't install scope on it. And why it says Magnum on it if it doesn't take 3 1/2-inch. loads?
Price $235 brand new.

Which one it's my best buy here?

Thank you

I think that mossburg is a single rail design- even if it isnt for sheer versatilty you cannot beat an 870. I own two, with #3 on its way...
