Remington Offers Versatile Model 870™ Express® 12-gauge Combo with Fully-Rifled Cantilever and Vent Rib Barrels

February 02, 2008

Madison, N.C. – The Remington® Model 870 pump-action has long been a favorite of bird and small game hunters and slug hunters have found the rifled-barrel version to be deadly accurate and dependable. Remington offers hunters who pursue multiple species of game the best of both worlds with the new Model 870 Express Synthetic Combo in a 12-gauge magnum offering. This reliable and versatile shotgun comes with a 23-inch fully-rifled cantilever barrel and a 28-inch vent rib barrel with a Modified Rem® Choke. (Note: The Model 870 Express Synthetic Combo is an exclusive firearm offering available only from select wholesalers through independent Remington Premier dealers).

The 23-inch fully rifled cantilever barrel has long been popular with deer hunters because of its tremendous accuracy potential with the newest generation of sabot slug ammunition, like our new Premier® AccuTip polymer-tipped slug. Mounting an optic is a cinch on the rock-solid Weaver-style base that is integral with the barrel. The 28-inch vent rib Rem Choke barrel handles both 2 3/4 and 3-inch loads and is supplied with a Modified choke tube. Both barrels and the receiver are finished in a black-oxide coating that provides a durable nonreflective matte finish.

This all-purpose shotgun can switch from a goose gun to a deer gun in just seconds and offers a great value for the sportsman on a budget. This complete package sells for just $585.
