    the wife has one, so does her dad. no issues at all
    it wont win any beauty contests or be the sort of firearm that gets handed down through generations but they are happy with theirs

    I've had a couple of the 870's, they are a little heavy but honestly the one I have now is probably my favourite gun, put hundreds of rounds through it, gets thrown in sand water etc never cleaned and it's never had a single fault...

    if its the remy 870 true but those gun city rip offs are heafty pieces of chinese made shite with dubious reliability.

    if they made a lefty 20 gauge fabarm id buy it.
    im seriously eye balling the akkar triple barrel 26 inch barrelled 20 gauge but i want to heft one before pushin the button
    it would solve any future mag plugin law problems at three shots dubious if over three are good anyway for me.
    [ATTACH]95179[/ATTACH ]in due course i shall feed it some of this starting with summer paries and maybe mallards.
    it only took 9 months to get here
    still it wont/dont kick as much as the full ounce load.

    It's a ranger, no issue the weight doesn't really bother me either..no reliability issues at all.

    A fabarm is way out of my budget...

    I did have a GC 870 as my first shottie and have to say that once I got it's initial feeding issues sorted (about 10 minutes with a gunsmith) it worked flawlessly and pointed extremely well. I did very well with it. The second owner liked it so much he bought the short barrel version as well. I liked the weight as it reduced recoil, conservation of momentum and all that.

    Just man up and buy a 12gu Fabarm. With their gas system and compressible piston they are very soft shooting and quite light. I've seen a few pop up in leftie config, been tempted to get one for the girl.

    Look at second hand. I bought a Fabarm that had already had many 10's of thousands of rounds through it. Looks rough but functions extremely well. Only time I've had an issue was foliage from the maimai getting caught in the action. That would have to go into the operator error category though.

    my fabarm was $850 c/w mag extension. camo finish on the stock was worn but apart from that its mint. shoots any weight projectile and is also rated full choke with steel.
