I need a new shotgun for the police academy, i'm looking for one with about an 18 inch barrel, composite stocks, and a mag extension or at least one available for it. i'm leaning towards the remington 870 any other suggestions for less than $500

I second the mossberg or even a Win 1200/1300 since they have a faster ability to cycle than Remington and Mossberg due. However Mossberg and Reminton are a bit tougher.

I'm sure both the Remington or Mossberg would be a good choice. Personally, I have the 870 and love it, plus there are tons of accessories for both of them.

u cant go wrong with any of the suggestions listed above.


if you want to "build" one go Remy or Mossy - if you want an "outa da box" solution go Win Defender 1300.

One note - if you "build" make sure its a magnum so you can use ALL of the available ammo (flares, bean bags, plastic, ect)

For the money, I'd say the 870 is your best bet. I've seen 870's go through just about anything and still work every time.

If you're looking for something a little prettier (also a lot pricier), I'd go with a Browning BPS 12.

I have a remington 870 magnum and two Mossberg 500's there both about equal but the mossbergs foregrip is lose because only one connecting bar where as the Remington feels solid as a rock, I dont like lose guns.

Me? I would go with a remington 870 magnum, you can add more stuff to it and its easy to work on and clean.

870 is def the answer. The Mossy 500 is a good shotty but it feels so crappy... The 870 feels like a sold rock.

For my money I would go with the Remington 870... Oh wait, I already did!

The Mossberg 500 is a fine shotgun, don't get me wrong, but the "Feng Shuei" or whatever just didn't do it for me. [Of course, my brother is getting a pistol-grip 500 that is damned near changing my mind on that!] Mossbergs are less expensive around here, if that is a factor [damn near half the price!]

Filthy Rich :twisted:
