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.

    • I do all of my hunting with a 20ga
    • I blame the Republicans National Committee for not grooming better candidates.     Are you "Pro-Life" or "Pro-choice" ?  
    • Neighbor Guy, you shoot a 20 gauge for smaller birds like bufflehead and teal?
    • Wasn't that about the time of the split and reorganization?   I would bet that the file hierarchy changed so the link is broken.       You can use the date on there as a guide and look back in the topics list by selecting old pages.  For example the "smoked duck marinade" thread is on page 152.    Here is the broken link And here is the working link I don't see any obvious way to convert the links so if there is one that you want to read, make note of the date and make a few tries in the topic list.  It only took me like three or four to find the duck one.     Shack seems to have found better stuff to do than hang around here..   Someone with nothing to do could redo the list.      Be a good day's work to go through the 158 pages.   Maybe after snow flies.  
    • You might try calling shorelandr.   When I called them (some years ago) they were very helpful.   Second choice would be take it to a good auto parts store.  I bet they can tell you what it is and sell you another.

    • The first hand report from LOW is its very quiet up here. I was told there were redheads and cans on the bay last weekend. Not much moving here at all today. The marina mallards and even a few bluewings are still hanging around. But most of what was tolling the decoys this morning was buffleheads. Most birds in pairs or singles. No real flocks. Very little in the way of shooting by me or anyone else. 
    • might be the worst "tailgate shot" ever. 4-buffleheads and a ringer in there all cozied up together. 
    • Specks showed up on the the sodak border this morning. Wind forecast to turn north. Could bring some fun and be one of the first real duck migration days.
