From what I posted on one of my web pages....
Remington introduced the 50thAnniversary Model 870 Classic Trap Gun as a tribute to the world's best selling pump shotgun! This 12-gauge gun featured a 30-inch vent rib barrel with RemChoke barrel and semi-fancy American walnut stock and forend. Remington also began making the Model 870 Wingmaster Super Magnum with 28-inch vent rib barrel with RemChoke, chambered for 2¾-inch, 3-inch and 3½-inch shells. The company also manufactured the Model 870 SPS-T RS/TG Shotgun with fully adjustable Truglo rifle sights, 20-inch RemChoke barrel, black matte finish on metal parts and black synthetic stock and forend. Remington also made a Model 870 SPS-T Super Magnum Camo CL/RD Shotgun, with a 23-inch barrel with RemChoke and Leupold/Gilmore Red Dot sights, a Mossy Oak Break-up camo finish on metal parts and on the synthetic stock and forend.
The 870 Remington shotgun used to be a popular candidate for a "release" trigger.
No requirement that it has to be.
It is the 100th Anniversary Edition for Remington's making of the 870 pump shotgun. It runs for around $1200 and is a limited edition item. The Premier Dealer Wingmaster also has engravings on each side and a gold trigger. It has semi-fancy claro walnut stock and forearm.
The Remington 870 is a type of shotgun which is known as "pump action". The Remington 870 requires the individual to "pump" the shotgun following each pull of the trigger. It is considered to have a slow rate of fire due to the pump action which is required.
Open the action. KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER WHILE YOU DO THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Remington does not show a 870 rifle on their web site. Do you mean the 870 Shotgun? the Remington 870 is one of the most popular shotguns in the us. this shotgun ranges from $300 for the basic model to $1000 for the fancy Wingmaster edition
Serial numbers by year for the 870 Remington Model.
The serial number is located on the left side of the receiver, towards the rear, just above the trigger.
