M887 Remington 12 ga. ???

5 posts in this topic

Well, i've been hearing a lot about this new Remington 12ga and yesterday i finally got the chance to look, hold & feel one at Gander Mountain, with the intention of purchasing one. The gun feels and holds comfortablly for me, but maybe not for the people with a smaller grip, well i thought the whole gun was bigger in thickness compare to normal Remington guns (i own 6 remington shotguns), but i thought i was light.

The reason why i decided to hold up on purchasing one was because the whole gun feels and looks like it's made entirely out of plastic, this was the only thing that worried me. The price at $375.00 for a 3 1/2 inch Remington 12ga was like candies to my eyes at that price.

Has anyone have had the chance to shoot one or tested one? I kind of would like more review on this gun before purchasing one. Thanks!

Check out the Remington HSOforum for more info on what it is made out of and what the benefits are. We have some on order but they haven't come in yet.

The little bit of internet research I have done has produced some pretty good reviews. I don't put a lot of stock in magazine reviews as they are paid to review the guns and I think are biased.

Ugly gun for sure, in the line of the Nova. It's a pump so chances are there won't be a whole lot of issues.

Not much help, I know, but I felt like typing something. wink

Thanks for the reply Koonie!

Yeah, i've read as much as i could of the reviews i could find online, but i was more looking at the average joe's point of view and first hand experience. Since i know that the guns given out for the sole purpose of a magazine review aren't 100% the same make and model as those sold at the store. I was hoping someone had recently purchased one and went through some rounds in it.

Any thoughts are more then welcome also.

    • It is summer bacon season, plus they have gotten trendy on their own.  
    • Fletcher must really like these guys that are small and quick.  I don't understand why they are trying so hard to keep the team intact.  They haven't made it past the 2nd round for the 5-6 years.  We've had this discussion before, but at what point do you say this just isn't working as is?   They have to move good players to get good players.  
    • I look at it like cast iron....numerous cookings give 'em a perfect seasoning. Gotta leave some residue on IMO.
    • No butcher buddy? They can order one for ya....be advised they have taken a huge leap in prices. Ask a butcher about that. Mine (who's also a good friend) said it's the highest he's ever seen 'em at right now.
    • jhust find a locker plant that smokes their own bellies and buy one from them.
    • I have seen it in Costco quite often.  Didn't look last time.    Or call around, often the meat markets will special order if desired.   Seems it was in the 3 buck a pound area if I remember right.     I don't know how far from a Costco you are, but they are a good place to buy meat.   Sams Club might work also. 
    • Pretty hard to tell. Is this on a TWSP, County or State road? You will need to get a permit from them and build it to their standards if approved. Will you need a culvert? Probably will unless you locate it at a highpoint. Will you have to remove any trees? How much fill is needed? is the ditch deep or shallow? How long do you want it? Hopefully you are not impacting any wetlands... It use to be simple, but now it is much more complicated. Could get spendy...
    • Since my smoker is new for now I throw them in the big wash sinks in the basement with some Dawn and hot water to soak. Then rinse them with more hot water. I'm sure in time once they get more "purplefloyd seasoned". I'll rub them a bit with a grill brush and hit them with a garden hose! 
    • Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
    • Anyone know where I can find it?  Checked a couple grocery stores and even a butcher and nobody has it?  Also what's a decent price if I do find any?
