870 or Supernova

Postby MarkM » September 17th, 2009, 7:15 am

Looking to buy a new shotgun that will do double duty as a turkey/waterfowl gun. I have narrowed it down to a 870 or the Supernova. I like how the 870 feels but I have heard that there has been some isssues with some of the new ones. What whould you guys pick between these two guns?

For me the 870.  I would be interested in the 870 issues, I have not heard of any.  The new 870's I have looked at and handled are pretty much the same as my 20+ YO Special Field and my buddies 40+ Wingmaster.  I see more accesories for the 870 in shops and online than any other shotgun.  I will stick with my 870 and recomend them.
Steve, I love "smoked" turkey

You'll never go wrong with a 870.I've shot one for years never had the first problem.

Hey Mark,

Welcome to the T&TH forum. Glad to have you here.

It's just hard to beat the Remington 870! It's a time proven gun and has been pointed out, there are so many ways to "customize" it to meet your needs.

I'm also a Benelli Nova fan. I've owned one since they came out and found it to be a very reliable shotgun that needs little in the way of maintenance. The bore is chrome-lined and most of the exterior is plastic coated, so rust is not a problem.

I'd go with whichever gun feels the best to you. You won't go wrong with either.

Thanks,
Clark
