I also have the Remington 870 Express Super Mag in Full Camo, New England Firearms and Remington share the same exact design so somewhere along the Way I'm certain Harrington and Richardson must have paid a fee to share the Remington 870 patent.

The only differences I see between the 2 shotguns is the New England Firearms has a longer Magazine Tube and it also utilizes the winchoke, Mossberg chokes while the Remington uses strictly Remington chokes.. other then that the only other difference is U.S. Dollars...

if your wanting to clays and birds I would suggest you find a good used 1100 in 20g.
around here you can find one for around 500$.
I like the older guns with a wood stock and nice finish.
Mine has amost no recoil and if your lucky you can find it in a lite weight 20.

I like Remingtons for the money. I just picked up a new 12 Ga express with the laminated wood, came with a rifled barrel and a chocked barrel, will shoot 3" mags for 350.00. Like I posted earlier I still have my 16 ga 870 that I got for Christmas in 1966.

I'm looking for a 12 ga and although I understand that realiability of the pump shotguns I think I'm leaning towards a semi-auto. The Remington seems to be the definent choice for a pump but I'm unsure with an auto. Any suggestions here? I've shouldered the 870 pump and would go this route if I was sold on pump.

a pump is more reliable cuz there are less parts and you can use them for waterfowling and get them dirty.autos have to be kept CLEAN the extra parts can cause problems.however the semi auto has less kick. my 2 cents

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

mrsracing, here's a link to seven of today's most popular auto shotgun makers. <-Click

That Article should give you some insight on the 7 most popular Semi-Automatic shotguns.
Now, After looking into it myself I would personally go with the Winchester Super X2.
but whichever you decide on Good Luck to you.

I like the Super X2 as well. Nice shotgun! I have a Super X and the X2 is even faster and better. Cannot go wrong there.

Is there a semi-auto within $500 or so? Eveyrthing I see looks great but the prices are a bit much.
