In 1950, Remington introduced a modern, streamlined, rugged, reliable, and relatively inexpensive shotgun – the 870. They reached two million guns by 1973 (ten times the number of Model 31 shotguns it replaced). As of 1983, the 870 held the record for the best-selling shotgun in history with three million sold. The model 870 has been put to the test by militaries and law enforcement agencies all over the world and has performed time and time again. This example displays honest use and has a long life ahead of it. This would be an excellent choice as a home defense or duty shotgun and is capable of performing in demanding conditions!
