Remington® Redefines Pump Shotgun Technology with Introduction of the Model 887™ – The Most Durable and Reliable Shotgun Ever Made!

January 05 2009

Madison, N.C. – It’s safe to say that Remington knows a thing or two about building pump shotguns. After all, the Model 870™ is the best-selling, most trusted shotgun of all time and has been the standard for slide-action performance for over 58 years!  With this type of excellence, it’s not everyday that a new pump shotgun is introduced by Remington. For 2009, Remington is excited to announce the Model 887 Nitro Mag; an armor-clad workhorse, designed to handle the most extreme hunting conditions on the planet.

Remington redefines pump shotgun technology with the 12 gauge Model 887 Nitro Mag.  The most durable and reliable shotgun ever built; it has minimal external surfaces to rust. Our exclusive ArmorLokt™ construction process seals the receiver and barrel in a vault of weather-impervious polymer material. Its overmolded surface is built to withstand abrasion and hard-core hunting abuse whether that’s barbed wire, gnarly thorns or the bottom of a Jon boat. And when it’s time for action, our revolutionary new SuperCell™ Recoil Pad so effectively reduces rearward force that it makes a magnum 12 gauge feel like a light field load. The Model 887 Nitro Mag is our softest-shooting pump gun ever. That means enhanced confidence on the first shot and smoother, faster follow-ups.

Designed for Rugged Dependability

Because the Model 887 Nitro Mag’s design is inspired by the strength and dependability of our Model 870, you can count on it to cycle flawlessly and stand up to abuse like no other. Similar to the Model 870, its receiver is manufactured from solid steel and the barrel is hammer-forged. Our ArmorLokt process packages it all under a weather-impermeable outer shell. Twin steel action bars ensure smooth, positive chambering and ejection for the long haul. And the sleek receiver design, awesome balance and natural pointing characteristics spell trouble for any bird within reach of its 12-gauge 3 ½-inch Super Magnum capability. The extremely rugged synthetic stock and fore-end are ergonomically contoured to offer a positive grip and comfortable handling while the built-in swivel studs insure a solid attachment for adding slings.

For 2009, the Model 887 Nitro Mag will be available in two introductory models; Black Synthetic and Realtree® Advantage MAX-4 HD® camouflage.   Both versions feature a versatile 28-inch barrel with solid rib and HiViz® front sight with interchangeable fiber-optic light tubes. The Model 887 Nitro Mag Synthetic is supplied with a Modified Rem™ Choke, while the Model 887 Nitro Mag Waterfowl Camo comes with an Extended Over Decoys Rem Choke that’s optimized for non-toxic waterfowl loads.
