Madison, N.C. – Remington has created two of the world’s toughest pump-action shotguns to survive in the most extreme hunting conditions associated with waterfowl hunting - the Model 870 XCS Super Magnum and Model 870 XCS Super Magnum-Waterfowl. These 12 gauge, 3 1/2-inch workhorses feature our durable TriNyte® Corrosion Control System and many other premium features, making them the ultimate pump shotguns for the waterfowl fanatic. (Note: The Model 870 XCS Super Magnum shotguns are exclusive firearm offerings available only from select wholesalers through independent Remington Premier dealers.)
Both guns are based on the venerable Model 870 twin-action bar design and feature our patented, armor-like TriNyte PVD (Physical Vapor Disposition) coating on external metal parts for unrivaled corrosion and abrasion resistance. Strenuous scientific testing has proven the TriNyte Corrosion Control System to be the toughest, most durable firearms finish on the market today. So don’t worry about salt spray, mud or cornfield stubble – they’re no match for these extreme conditions guns. Unlike most other shotguns, all internal components on these shotguns are nickel plated to add another level of rust resistance, including the bore and magazine tube. Both the XCS Super Magnum and XCS Super Magnum-Waterfowl handle the full range of 12-gauge shotshell sizes from 2 3/4 to 3 1/2-inches and are proofed for steel shot and the newest non-toxic loads like our heavier-than-lead, high density Wingmaster HD™ loads.
These XCS shotguns feature the convenient SpeedFeed® I stocks with spring-loaded compartments on each side, making extra shells handy for quicker reloads. This well-designed stock can hold up to four 2 3/4-inch shells or two 3 or 3 1/2-inch shells and the addition of a patented Remington recoil pad helps tame the recoil of stout 3 1/2-inch waterfowl loads. Both versions come equipped with hammer-forged, carbon steel 28-inch vent rib Rem® Choke barrels and the inclusion of three chokes - Improved Cylinder, Modified and Full, allow waterfowl hunters to match their patterns to the hunting conditions. Twin beads allow quick and accurate sighting.
The Model 870 XCS Super Magnum has an “Overcast Gray” TriNyte finish on the receiver and barrel and comes equipped with durable, non-reflective matte black synthetic stock and fore-end. The Model 870 XCS Super Magnum-Waterfowl features an “Olive Drab” finish on external parts and the stock and fore-end are clad in Mossy Oak® Duck Blind® camo, providing ultimate concealment. This extremely effective camo layers wet and dry-ground tones with native grasses, crops and marsh plants for maximum concealment in any hunting environment. A light-gathering, fiber optic TRUGLO® front sight completes this hardcore waterfowl version. Sling swivel studs are also standard on both models and a padded, black sling is included.
Whether you are hunting the Atlantic flyway, hunkered down in a goose blind in the snowy Midwest or standing in the flooded timbers of Stuttgart, Arkansas, the Model 870 Xtreme Conditions Super Mag shotguns can live up to the task.
