    Just wondering if anyone has shot one yet? Thinking about picking on up or should I go with the 870?

    I was talking to a dealer the other day and heard nothing but good things about it. People told him it is a new and improved 870.

    I've heard the same thing about the 887. I just haven't seen one in person yet. It's definitely a gun that I'd consider buying. I'm just hesitant with all things that are relatively new. There always seem to be small kinks that didn't get worked out in product testing.

    I love shooting my setup. It's hard to go back to anything else now.

    The 887 is designed for 3 1/2 inch shells. One thing that duck hunters might appreciate about the 887 is that it is supposed to be more rust resistant than the 870. That said, my 870 express is chambered for 3 1/2 inch shells and is parkerized and pretty rust resistant too. I've shot 870s for nearly for nearly forty years and have no complaints about them. I've stepped into holes and dunked my Wingmaster into the water, gotten it covered with mud and sand, and all the maintenance it ever needs is a hose down and a spray with WD-40 -- and that's the old blued one with the wood stock. However, if you want to spend an extra hundred bucks for a specialty waterproof duck gun then go for it -- that's what keeps companies in business.

    Soo I shot it today, finally!!
    I LOVED IT!!!!!

    1) 12 gauge 2 3/4 shells. Really, basically no Recoil what's sooo ever

    2) 3 inch shells. Basically half the recoil as my buddy's 870 express!!

    Only drawback. Bolt release. If you aren't careful, you will pinch your finger!! Did it three times!!!

    Oh as for the 3 1/2 shells, I am not sure how they shoot because I couldn't find a box of them anywhere!! As soon as I get my hands on them; I will let you know

    The release is the only thing I don't like about the 887, I almost picked on up earlier this year but after that I decided I would just stick with mu 870, be safe with it and if it flies it dies!
