I remember Tron doing a review of modifications he would make also on these pages and he did make them on one gun

I think H&R meant well? I also think they meant to get in on the action of supplying the youngins with cheap single barrel guns so popular in trap. Trouble is, I seriously doubt the designers and engineers ever shot more than a few clays with those lightweight mules if at all? Those things will ruin more kids spirit for shooting competition than about any shotgun I've ever seen! Bad idea from the start in the name of "CHEAP"!!

Gary, you're so right guy!!

I thought the review was rather funny....."The auto ejector was located at 6 o'clock behind the chamber mouth."......really? Geez why would they put it there????

It's chambered for 3", but I don't think I'd dare shoot one.

We've had a couple of them at our club. They are light and kick, but not only that they are hard to cock for some one with small hands. The trigger pulls are terrible. I loaded some 3/4 loads for them to tame them a little and the kids shot better.

My buddy and I were out playing with my plain Jane NewEngland 12 mod choke today with a back yard thrower we had a blast. We didnt shoot a whole round each but man it was busting them good.

Perhaps fill the stock with some weight, a dead mule or something I think it could be tolerable.

Unfortunately you can buy a 870 express for $250 BUT if its a trap model well then its $600

Remington why not a plain Jane 870 trap matte finish birch Monte carlo stock pressed checkering something easy something inexpensive(not cheap

I bought one just for shits and giggles. It shoots pretty darn good. I bought it just to prove I can shoot about any gun someone gives me. I broke a 46 of 50 this winter from the 20yd and hit them good. They do kick with factory loads but with some lighter reloads kick was normal and not too bad. I agree for a young shooter the hammer is stiff but I had gloves on as it was 17 degress when I shot it so it didnt hurt my thumb.

Seems these are out of production and word is they're not going to make more. We were looking to get some as loaners on our range, but reconsidered as they are tough to cock and even harder to uncock if you have to unload for any reason. Hard for kids to open too.
