Would you buy a "new" 870? I have never owned an 870. However I qualified on them many times before the Mossberg came around. I have a Mossberg 590A1.
Are the quality issues with Rem enough to waylay a good deal?

The 870 and 590 are both basic and reliable tools. I donít see quality issues with either.

Remingtonís customer service is atrocious, and I wonít ever buy another one of their products for myself.

Eager to see who says what as I haven't read about any 870 production issues - but I haven't looked, I know the early marlins took a huge hit.

love my 870

I own 3 Mossberg which are great, however I would buy an 870 without concern.

I have an older model 12 gauge 870 (metal trigger group) and two 20 Gauge 870s less than 2 years old. No problems with any of them. In fact I want to add a 870DM to the collection. I would buy without hesitation

If I were to get one, it be one of the used police models. Better quality than the basic non-le models.

If you have a 590 then you don't gain much with an 870 unless you just want something with good aftermarket parts. Both are run of the mill pump shotguns.

Funny enough the Chinese clones of the 870 are built better in some ways. I had a H&R Pardner Protector that was such a clone and it had a beefier receiver with a metal trigger guard. I was able to swap out the stock for a speedfeed for an 870 and it fit fine. Barrels were the only proprietary part.

I've moved onto autoloaders now though.

I would not hesitate to purchase a new Remington 870. That said I would limit my choice to one of the Police or Wingmaster Models. They receive a bit more quality built into their construction. And are worth the extra money.

I would not buy any newer Remington product.

If cheap is what you want, the Mossberg maverick is the AK of cheap shotguns.

My truck and bike gun have been completely submerged and coated in mud more times than I can count. Zero rust. No loss of function.

I don't buy new weapons very often. I like the fit and finish of the older stuff. I'd buy a used one if was in the market smile
