REMINGTON 887 PUMP
« on: August 29, 2011, 07:54:07 PM »
I was just wondering if anyone has any reviews on this gun. I was just on the Remington site and it is one sweet looking gun.

One word...GARBAGE.  What you didn't see were all of the horrible, scathing reviews that remturd got.

If your gonna go with remington get the 870 or 1187.

I know I have two 870 and there great. I guess that's why I assumed that this 887 would be great gun. The way the Remington site sells it it sounds better than the 870. Go figure.

They're probably trying to get rid of the stock that they have on hand.  I can't imagine that they are still in production.

The guys are right, I would not buy a 887.  I have delt with 2 of them. Point of aim and point of of impact was way off like a foot or more at 30-40 yards. Action was very rough and shells would stick in the chamber and the finish wasn't all  that good. This gun is no where nearas good as the old 870's, which I think was one of the best pumps ever made.

Go screwing with a good thing like the 870 its gonna bite em in the rear. whomever is running the marketing campaign over there for shotguns must have a part time job with Peta. The first step they took to losing face is dropping the sps-t line and making that 887. I wont buy any more new remington shotguns. I love my older ones and will hang onto those and pick up a few more.

Run a "search" on  "Remington 887" .  I don't think I've heard anything good about the shotgun from anyone who has had any experience with the firearm except the reviews in the "glossies" who advertise Remington products.

Remington {and others} has been under pressure from Nova sales for quite some time - the 887 looks to be Remington's answer to that market share that would like look at the Super Nova - Remington has a good thing going on with the 870 , perhaps the firearms equivalent of the Ford Model T -

 I think looking at that they would have been best suited making  a refined and more modernized version of the 870 making good use of polymer's and CNC , with backwards compatible component s - like the stock, barrel, and trigger assembly that could be swapped from both models - that way they could tap into the vast aftermarket potential that the 870 has

The over all looks and the feel of the 887 is wonderful.I liked that part of it.It was a sharp looking gun with that armour they put on it but performance isnt there.
