870's

Hey y'all. Just getting back into firearms. Not sure if this topic has been covered or not, but can anyone explain any major differences between the Remington 870 marine magnum & 870 police magnum, aside from the obvious finish? Also, which, if either, would you recommend and why, and what should I expect to pay for it? Thanks in advance!

Thanks Nick! I had forgotten about this. I wound up buying the police magnum several firearms ago. That marine magnum still looks pretty B.A. though!

Sweet! I'm thinking about an affordable trap gun one of these days. Got any recommendations?

I always liked the semi-autos for trap, skeet and sporting clays. I have an old Remington 1100 that I use, but my buddy just bought a Stoeger for like $250 . Real nice gun, made by Benelli

I know this is old but for trap I love my 870 wingmaster. I got a 20 gauge years ago and still shoot it. I just found a 12 gauge wingmaster for $140 at a pawn shop I think I'll pick up tomorrow.

I've had bad luck with the maverick. Jammed up alot on me. It was to unreliable for me so I got rid of it. Dont know how the new ones are though

I figure for the price, it's worth the gamble. I'm not planning on needing to do any battle with it, so 100% reliability isn't a deal breaker. More than likely, my wife will probably loose interest in it within a week of me buying it anyway and I'll be glad that I didn't spend more.
