About 5 years ago I bought an 870 express 20 gauge combo with the bird barrel and rifled slug barrel for like $475 out the door. I've taken quite a few deer with the slug barrel and rabbits with the bird barrel, even a couple turkeys. The action might be a tad rough out of the box but it smooths up real quick. Usually when people say that shells stick in the chamber there is a burr. I didn't have that problem but I've read about it, it would be an easy fix so it doesn't really bother me. It's a great shotgun.
