I recommend the Remington 870 express

The Remington 870 express is available in both 12 and 20 gauge. It goes on sale at 299.xx. My Son has one in 12 gauge that he loves. The 26 inch barrel worked fine for his high school trap team. He is now using it for turkeys with a special extra full choke. You can get a rifled choke for the barrel that will help with accuracy shooting the sabot slugs. The problem that you may have is sighting down the vent rib is not as precise as using front and rear fixed sights. My Son has no problems sighting down the rib at 30 to 40 yards for Turkey, you are talking about 100 yard shots. There is a company that makes sights that attach to the vent rib of a shotgun, that will give you a more accurate sight picture for shooting at 100 yards. The shotgun can group slugs at 100 yards, the only question is can the shooter.

here is what I use in shotgun only areas. Remington 870 3" express, Redfield 1.5x5. I know what's with the Browning sling on a Remington? I just like sling!

From my experienced I will like to suggest that you will get slug guns from Safford Sporting Goods at an affordable range. Here you will able to get other products like gun slings, gun safety, choke tubes and many more.

What kind of accuracy do you get from this mount? In my humble experience these squeeze too much and cause the groups to spread or cause the guns action to stop working.

My 870 express will shoot 2" groups at 70 yds using 3" Remington sabots and shooting off the bench. I have a 1.75 X 5 Redfield scope on it. I would have no problem shooting out to 125yds with if a good shot was at hand.

Hello, friends! was in Russia on hunting in this year. Used the Agency POWERINHUNT. No problem! I brought home a bear! Tell me, did someone address them?
