Remington Model 870 Express Pump Synthetic 7-Round 3-inch 20 gauge

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

This is a very fast-handling gun. Some of our testers wondered why it wouldn't be a better defense choice for most households, given that dad, mom, or a properly trained teenager could wield it more easily than a bigger 12 gauge.

The 870’s checkering on the grip and forearm made it easier to hold with sweaty hands.
The Mossberg and Remington buttstocks included molded-in studs for rear sling swivels, and the Remington also included a swivel stud on its barrel clamp. The Mossberg was threaded to accept a stud in its cap, but the screw-in stud itself (part no. 36) wasn’t included.
The Remington trigger broke at 5.5 pounds. We liked the Mossberg’s wider trigger shoe better.
