Remington Model 870 Desert Recon

Remington Model 870 Desert Recon – Tactical Performance from America’s Most Dependable Pump ShotgunMadison, NC – For nearly sixty years, whether serving duty with the nation’s military, law enforcement or with millions of hunters in the field, the Model 870 has stood the test of time with absolute reliability and rugged durability. New for 2008, Remington is excited to announce the Model 870 Tactical Desert Recon.

The Tactical Desert Recon comes “ready for action”, straight out of the box. This Model 870 series is equipped with Tiger Stripe Products Digital Tiger™ TSP Desert camo stocks and fore-ends in both SPEEDFEED I (shell holding) or SPEEDFEED IV (pistol grip) configurations. For a distinctive, functional appearance, both versions feature durable military-style olive drab powder-coated barrels and receivers.

To round out this unique tactical package, the Desert Recon Series provides a choice of 18 or 20-inch barrels and two- or three-shot magazine-tube extensions. To reduce muzzle jump and recoil, both Desert Recon models are fitted with our new ported Tactical Extended Rem Choke tube.
