Stock Configuration & Condition: The stocks are walnut with impressed checkering and fleur de lis pattern at the pistol grip, which has a black grip cap and white line spacer. The most notable mark on the butt stock is a 3/8” long compression mark on the left side of the pistol grip above the checkering. The forearm has matching checkering and several small compression marks on the underside along with some spots where the high gloss finish has worn. The LOP measures 11 1/2” from the front of the trigger to the rear of the black rubber White Line recoil pad, so obviously the stock has been shortened. The stocks rate in about Fine overall condition.
Type of Finish: Blue
Finish Originality: All Original
Bore Condition: The bore is bright with some straight line scoring ahead of the chamber. The forcing cone has been lengthened.
Overall Condition: This shotgun retains about 90% of its metal finish. The balance of the finish shows some wear at the receiver under the ejection port and has a scratch on each side of the receiver above the trigger. The barrel has a line along the area where the forearm rubs during use. The markings are clear except as noted. Overall, this shotgun rates in about Very Good to Fine condition.
Mechanics: The action functions correctly. We have not fired this gun.
Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None
Our Assessment: This Remington Model 870 has been cut down to fit someone of smaller stature. If you are looking for a “youth” or “ladies” shotgun this may well fit the bill. With the purchase of another stock you could have your cake and eat it too. This is perhaps the most prolific pump action shotgun in history. A solid quality shotgun with parts and accessories readily available.
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This shotgun can be transferred in California.
