    Hello...

    What are the differences between a Remington 870 Trap TC & TB ?

    Thanks

    The TC was a wood upgrade but actually there is very little difference as I have seen some really nice TB's

    all the TC's that I have seen also had cut checkering, where the tb's have had pressed checkering.

    They both are upgraded wood as has been mentioned, and in several cases the tb wood has been as nice as some of the tc wood.

    Older...newer... just wondering...some research found, mentions that the TC has a polisher action and is really smooth...so I've read...

    Thanks for the response

    I have an older TB and have had it since 1980, not sure when it was made but the blueing and wood is far superior to any TC I have seen to date

    If you can find an older TC (60's) and the barrel doesn't have any production stamps on it near the breech end then you have a better barrel than the standard barrels on the older TB's. I agree that some of the guns made in the late 7o's and early 80's had great metal finishing. They called it "RotoHoned". Very dark and shiny.

    If the barrel does have production stamps it's just a regular 870 barrel with a rib and a center bead.

    In 1972 my brother bought a TC and I bought a TB. His had wood about thirteen times nicer than mine, cut checkering and in the literature was said to have a honed action. Mine has nice wood, standard action, pressed checkering. Both had 30 inch barrels, mine full, his mod trap. His was monte carlo, mine straight. His was used very little and I now have it. Mine was used enough to cause a crack in the receiver. I wish I could shoot his. The monte slams me. Maybe I could liposuction my cheek. (on my face).
