What are considered the best 870's and why?

Post by frankhenrylee » Sun Apr 08, 2012 6:21 pm

Hey folks. I'm looking at doing another 870 build, but want to start with the best.
2.75" and 3"
vent rib barrel( prefer 21", but can modify)
Remchoke(not absolute on this)

I know the Wingmasters are considered to be the best, but what makes em better? Can I just hone and polish an express model and have the same thing? The original "Special Purpose" models are supposed to be a higher grade too, but I haven't been able to find out much about either. Any help is much appreciated, thanks!

I have an 870 Police and love it. I think they might be the best platform to build from. Here's a thread you may find interesting that explains the differences between the Police and the Express:

Good luck on your build Frank!

Truly if i could have any 870 for free it would be an MARINE MAGNUM. You can make an express feel better than an Wingmaster at least that is what I did with my express magnum. But if you are looking for a sweet action 870s are not an m37....
