    dDI bought one last year. This gun takes some time to brake. The biggest thing is you can not short shuck it like the Wingmaster or Express. The more I use the gun the better I like it and do not have the rust problem I had before hunting the Gulf Coast a gun can rust on the boat ramp down here.

    The 887 got very bad write ups in Gun Test.

    Porc, I'm a pretty big die-hard Remington guy when it comes to hunting. 1100'S, older Wingmasters, and 11-87's. Love to hunt squirrels, ducks, turkeys, pheasants and rabbits as much as the next guy. I would stay away from that 887. But, it's only my opinion. The only reason I'd ever consider one is if I were hunting in saltwater and needed something in a pinch and didn't want to ruin a classic.

    I never thought I'd own, shoot and even like a plastic gun until I bought my Benelli Super Nova. My not a real young guy but it only took about 15 seconds to get over the Terminator look of it after I shouldered it. Handles fantastic and a great shooter. Doesn't rattle either. I picked up an 11-87 SPS SuperMag for a steal. It handles 2 3/4" dove, trap and skeet loads, 2 3/4" heavy field loads, 3" & 3 1/2" steel and turkey loads without cycling problems. What a bum wrap this gun got/gets. Either I'm lucky or other guys don't know how to use theirs. I havn't been shooting my older Remmys that much over the last few years, took a liking to the composites in the field.

    Look around if you have time and don't rush. There is alot of composite stuff out there.
