    depends what 870 tc's you are taling about. in the milwaukee wisconsin area, a new 870 tc with choke tubes are selling at gander mountain anywhere from $889.00 to 999.00 depending on how much figure is in the wood. i feel they are very overpriced. use tc with choke tubes going for $650-750.00. now if you can find an old tc with the red pad and no choke tubes, i feel that is a better gun. a used one i saw, like new was going for $650.00.

    I would look for an older one with fixed choke they were made better and the old barrels are said to be truer. I have seen them go for 500.00 to 650.00 condition and wood being the difference some of the old TC's had great wood.

    There are no new production TC's...the 870 trap model is called the Classic. Still one of the best bang-for-the buck guns out there. However, an older TB or TC with fixed choke would be my first choice...with 5 of these in the safe, I know what my weakness is when I come across a nice one.
    I'm still lusting after the All American that MIA posted last month.

    My first trap gun was an 870TC. It was made I believe around 1960. It had beautiful wood and in my opinion; a lot better built than the newer 870's. When you pumped the gun it was solid, (similiar to the Model 12). The newer ones feel like they were made out of "tin cans". I too, would look around for an older model. Remington seemed to have cheapened all their products as the years went by. If they continue with this trend they will end up like Winchester. My opinion. Ed

    I have a 1969 model. It is the first trap gun I owned. I think it is an over priced 870 nothing more...........Roger

    Roger, may the ghost of Fred Etchen visit you at midnight....lol. Over priced 870? That gun will be shooting long after most any trap gun made. Granted they may not be as "smooth" as the Model 31 or a Model 12, but if there ever was a pump that is pretty much indestructable, it's the 870. Now go to church and repent for your blasphemy...

    Saw a couple on gunsamerica and gunbroker within the past month for $375-$450 range. They were actual TCs with lots of photos

    In August of 2006, I paid $525 plus shipping for a NIB TC from another poster on here. I've owned one for about 25 years but my son didn't have one - I believe that every trapshooter ought to have at least one 870 trap model!

    Jimx200, It's still an 870.....and I still shoot it once in a while, by the way, I saw a guy shooting doubles with an 870 this fall. He had a blue laminated stock and forend and was the quickest pump gun doubles shooter I have ever seen ............Roger
