Ten Million Remington Model 870s
Madison, NC - Remington Arms Company, Inc. is acknowledging a milestone of an American classic, the Model 870 pump-action, in the September 24, 2009, edition of USA Today® with a full-page ad thanking America and the millions of Model 870 owners for making it possible to reach the 10,000,000th production mark. In honor of this historic achievement, Remington is also sponsoring the "10 Millionth Model 870 Shotgun" Sweepstakes.

With its beginnings 193 years ago, Remington is America's oldest gunmaker and has proudly manufactured the Model 870 since its introduction in 1950 and every year since then. Although Remington introduced many variations of the Model 870 throughout the years to suit the specific needs of a wide variety of users including hunters, trap shooters, left-handers and youth as well as platforms designed for use by law enforcement agencies and military worldwide; the Model 870 has remained true to its original design. Gun owners everywhere appreciate the value and quality of the Model 870, making it the shotgun of choice in gun cabinets across the country.

To enter the "10 Millionth Model 870 Shotgun" Sweepstakes and view entry guidelines, log on at www.remington.com/10milu. Entries will be accepted online from 9/24/09 - 12/31/09 with ten eligible adult winners selected to receive a commemorative Model 870 pump-action shotgun, recognizing this milestone.

Legendary for its reliability, durability and smooth pump action, the Model 870 is the shotgun of choice for many hunters, target shooters, law enforcement personnel, conservationists and our armed forces. And today, thanks to the millions of Model 870 owners across America, it's the best-selling shotgun of all time.

Thanks, Chris!
 
I have tried and/or owned just about every major brand and type of shotgun (i.e, autos, over-unders, side-by-sides, and pumps). 
 
The two that I've found most reliable are sitting in my gun safe now.  They are Remington 870s in 12 gauge and 20 gauge.  These two shotguns will do (and have done) everything I ever needed or wanted from a shotgun.

I'm more familiar with the 870 than any other shotgun, yet I don't own one. I think it is one of the best and most versatile shotguns ever made. I never thought I would need one until I shot a match using a semi-auto shotgun. It's very hard to beat simplicity, and familiarity.

That is the key to being a good shot.  Most think they can spend their way into being a good shooter.  I've seen and heard of old farmers with beat up model 70's and old Leupolds or Redfield that do amazing things but to them its just old hat cause they do it all day every day.

+1  Before Dad had eye surgery (2 detached retinas), he was pure hell on wheels with his shotgun.  It is an old Savage Stevens.  No vent rib, Mod fixed choke and a single brass bead on the end.  When we first started hunting, he said, "Go ahead and shoot first, I get what you miss", and he did.  He had that gun since he was a senior in high school, 1969.

I've also owned a few through the years, I either sold or traded them away for no good reason other than having something different.

 I've owned a couple and they were always absolutely reliable.
I love 870s.
 Should get another one.
