Remington® Introduces the Model 870™ Express® Compact Line of 20 Gauge Shotguns

Madison, N.C. – Young shooters are more likely to become stewards of the shooting sports if they are initiated with a gun that fits properly.  Remington is proud to introduce three versions of the Model 870 Express Compact pump action shotgun in 20 gauge and a shorter Model 870 Express Compact Jr. in 20 gauge. All four feature durable synthetic fore-ends and stocks with a shorter length of pull than our standard Model 870; our new Adjustable Length of Pull (LOP) System which easily adjusts LOP incrementally up to one inch; the world’s most effective recoil pad, SuperCellTM, which soaks up reward force to create the most comfortable shooting experience possible; and shorter barrel lengths for proper balance.

The Express Compact is available in the following versions – Black Synthetic, Realtree Hardwoods HD® and Remington’s exclusive, Mossy Oak® Blaze Pink Camo. The Express Compact Jr. is available in a Black Synthetic version.

Remington’s new Adjustable Length of Pull system is comprised of two 1/4-inch and one 1/2-inch length spacers and corresponding screws; allowing both youth and small-stature shooters the ability to personalize each gun to their individual shooting preference and dimensions.  Young shooters now have the capability to “custom fit” their shotgun as they grow. 

America’s most popular pump action, the long-lasting Model 870, features twin-action bars and ultra-reliable feeding, extraction and ejection. All metal surfaces feature a non-glare, matte finish. The hammer-forged, carbon steel Rem™ Choke barrel features a vented rib with single bead sight and a Modified choke tube (Full choke tube with Compact Jr.) is included. All models have rugged synthetic stocks and fore-ends with sling swivel studs.
