Remington 870 12 ga.

Postby patinlouisiana » Fri Mar 18, 2016 8:53 am

Anyone have an idea what a used 870 is worth?
Thinking about getting one for the house as I can't find a tactical bbl for my Moss 835.

I keep the Rossi double barrel 12 loaded with the Remington #4, 41 pellet buck shot. It will put 36 pellets in a 14 inch square at 20 yds. He may walk in on me. But he will never leave.

Had a friend that was the local law in this small town that had a Rossi overland nickle plated.
He said the way it glowed in the light of the bar room he never had to fire it ;-)

That's funny Pat, I love it and can't believe the tight pattern it holds with all rounds. The Remington 41 pellet, is not a round you want to be hit with. On a human, it is deep penetration with massive bone damage. At close range, may God rest his soul.

Just buy a used Mosseberg 500, and cut the barrel to 18 1/2"
You can buy all kinds of accessories for it
I have one that holds 8 rounds of 2 3/4" 00 buckshot
Has a red laser and a tactical light mounted and have about $400 in it with my add on's
