870's are known for their reliability. Lots of aftermarket support. Ghost ring sights provide more accuracy, and the rail adds another option for optics. All around great shotgun.

wanted a home defense shotgun
Alexander on Feb 20, 2019
I’m law enforcement and I can carry it in my vehicle at work. It met the specifications required by my department (Remington 870 with a 18”-20” barrel with rifle or ghost ring sights).
Brian S on Feb 20, 2019
I have other Remington 870 shotguns and wanted the tactical version. Been looking for the Ghost Ring sight version and this is an excellent price so I "pulled the trigger" on it.

Is the action on the pump smooth?
Gene on Jan 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It's quite smooth. (I'm a 5.5, 115 lb female, so I tend to be "too gentle" with my guns and my standard for "smooth and easy to operate" is high :) I don't run it dry though, I always put a drop of lube on the gun. Haven't had any issues short-stroking it, however, I had to install different sling attachment points, because I'd get the sling tangled / interfering while operating the pump.
With Magpul stock (right LOP for me) and forend, better located sling mounts and a red dot, this is one mean home defense rig. Handles well, you'll find tons of after-market products for it and yes, runs smooth.
Does this come with the shell side saddle?
David on Jul 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: nope...but i added one from mesa tactical (sureshell v3)...easy enough

Changed the stock over to the Mag Pul drop stock and for end. After completely and thoroughly cleaning the gun, both inside and out the action worked very smoothly. Initially you could feel that the action was sluggish and gritty. Clearly the dirtiest new gun I ever received. However, it did clean up well after saturating all disassembled parts, allowing them to sit for several minutes, wiping them clean and then using my favorite synthetic lubricant all is good. One note, the aftermarket for end will rub slightly when racking shells. This will cause some wear on the mag tube. Additionally, the rear ghost ring site has an elevation adjustment if necessary, great feature if accuracy for slug shells is important. The Rem Choke system allows for any of a wide variety of chokes to be purchased and used including aftermarket, great feature. Most importantly, Remington has sold over 11 million of the 780 shotguns for a reason...THEY JUST WORK. Also the receivers are actually steel not aluminum like the Mossberg's. Get ya one, you'll not regret it. Great price from GAG.

Fantastic as expected
Awesome gun. When shooting slugs, its more pleasant to shoot then my mossberg 500 because its heavier and more solid. The ghost rings sights pick up nicely but I will upgrade to the tritium front sight sometime in the future. The muzzle break screws in like a choke so you can remove it if you want to. It holds 6 + 1 and all the magazine tube is, is an extension that screws into the part at the end of front grip. There is no plug to remove. Just a spring. When loading the magnum slugs into the magazine, the don't fit as good for some reason but you just have to ram it in and it works fine. Regular cheap bird shot loads easier, but the slugs really aren't a problem. I was hitting a steel plate at a hundred yards, iron sights with slugs. Its plenty accurate with standard store bought slugs. Do recommend, very sturdy and fun gun to shoot.
