    Anybody know whether this gun is for real? Never heard of a Remington factory single shot 870 with recoil reducer but this sure looks like a nice piece. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks, Art G.

    It's called an 870 Comp, and they made for a couple of three years in the early 80's. I've owned a few and still have one. Very nice soft shooters. Some parts these days are made of 100% unobtainium.

    A few of them got cracked receivers, our club had one. don't know if it was a manufacturing issue or how it was resolved. this one cracked at the bottom where the magazine tube goes in.

    Good soft shooters, Rudy Etchen had one and loved it.

    Halfmile,

    The one I have used to belong to Rudy. I just smile everytime I pull the trigger.

    The cracked recievers were mainly caused by shooting the gun without the barrel being suffeciently tightened.

    Pretty simple and anyone that can operate a lathe should be able to turn the parts.
