    Anyone have experience with a BPS Trap----How does it compare with 870 Trap?

    Thanks Joe McKinney

    If you are comparing to what's being made today, I'd give the nod to the Browning. It has a better stock and better barrel.

    On the other hand, the BPS won't compare with an older TB/TC in smoothness.

    i am a remington 870 collector. recently i acquired two browning bps trap guns. one was made in the 70's the other recently. the monte carlo stocks seem to fit just about everyone. the barrels are fantastic, hit targets with absolute authority. the guns i have were flat shooters, but recently i traded trap barrels with a league shooter, mine shot flat, his was shooting high. these guns are smoke poles. i am left handed, and i really like the bottom ejection. most trap shooters do not like bottom ejection, they feel they are more difficult to load the shell. once you get use to it, there is no problem. the bps triggers are better than the 870's, and the gun when pumped is smoother. the price on a new bps trap is now around $600.00 compared to $900.00 for a 870 trap. the bps is more difficult to sell or trade, especially to a dealer, and you will probably get less money trading a bps trap gun. i have had two dealers who refuse to take a bps on trade. they say a bottom ejection gun is hard to sell.

    the 870-
    the 870 is a great gun, millions of hunters, shooters have them. if there was one gun i could use to protect my life it would be the 870. i prefer the older ta's, tb's tc's, compared to the newer choke tube models. to keep cost down the newer 870's are not built as well as the older 870's, (my opinion). out of the box, i have had some 870 triggers with some creep to them. a gunsmith can usually fix this. years ago, remington tb's and tc's had some of the nicest trap wood you could possibly get. i feel most people can shoot the 870 easier than the bps. you can always resell or trade in an 870 . parts are readily available, if ever needed, which is rare. now the question is what gun would i choose a bps or 870? the bps is a good gun well worth the money. the 870 is a great gun well worth the money. 870 wins in my opinion.

    My 16 year old son shoots the BPS trap. It was made into a fabulous trap gun the day I had the adjustable comb added. That's when he really started to knock em dead.He likes the BPS so well he made me buy him a 3.5" camo BPS. I will add that the BPS trap is a flat shooter out of the box.
