From the fields and waterways of America, to the front lines of law enforcement, Remington shotguns continue to lead the way for the American way of life. Year after year, decade after decade, they withstand the test of time and conquer all rivals. Whether it’s the most popular and enduring pump action of all-time, or autoloading innovation that sets the new standard for reliability, they all share the same legacy – the reliable Remington name.
The MODEL 870 is a workhorse with a heart of steel.
Starting with a receiver machined from an 8 1/2-pound billet of steel might not be the easiest way to build a shotgun, but the end result is well worth the extra effort. No other pump shotgun can match the Model 870's strength and smooth, effortless operation.
Its legendary reliability is the heart of its popularity, as evidenced by the more than 13 million outdoorsmen, law enforcement officers, competitive shooters and home defenders who have chosen the never-say-die pump gun since its introduction in 1950. That same reliability has made the Model 870 one of the most adaptable shotgun designs ever, and the best-selling shotgun of all time.
