Anybody have any experience with these shotguns? I seen one at a pawnshop today for $359 looked brand new not a scratch on it!!!! Any pros and cons of this shotgun? Thinking about going back and getting it!!!

Hey there Cajun.I did some google search reviews on this shotgun,and recommend you do the same before plunking down the cash.
If it is a Camo version,there are a lot of bad reviews about it peeling off.Also reviews of the bolt not closing completely while trying to load a round.just looking out for you brother.
Do yourself a favor,buy an 870.

I'm not a die hard Remington guy. But the Remington guys I know, I mean the guys who think the last shotgun ever made was a 1100, wouldn't touch a 887 with a 10 ft pole. They were bad.

They were so bad Remington threw in the towel pretty quick.

Thank you brother I appreciate it it was the black synthetic!!! I did a little researching on it earlier before I posted but figured I would ask you guys because I'm gonna surely trust what you guys say before anybody else!!! I might just have to keep looking!!!
