Articles on the Remington 870
Combining the latest, most sophisticated technology available for combat weaponry in 2001 on an “old fashioned” Remington pump shotgun may seem like putting a turbocharger on a Model T, but the tried-and-tine Model 870 is so fundamentally sound that it easily adapts to these ultra-modern enhancements.
To me the test of time is one of the most important measures of the success or failure of any firearm. When we work within a field where the technology is very mature, truly new stuff is hard to find. Often we see the same basic action adapted to fill different roles. That is how it is with the Remington 870 pump. Since it has been in continuous production since 1950, I guess we’d have to call it a success. More than 7 million sold removes the guesswork.
If you’ve been waiting for a dedicated, “purpose-built” light and laser unit for the Remington 870 12 gauge, send a thank you note to LaserMax. Their new LMS-1202 combo is light, tough, effective and very user friendly.
