Funny you ask about this rifle. I just finished reading an article in Guns and Weapons for Law Enforcement (getting ideas for a build and learning) about this rifle. It was designed to mimic an 870 in just about every way. The rifle looks almost exactly like an 870 including the location of the safety. The sights are XS Sight ghost ring sights. The author stated these rifles were designed for agencies that could not afford the cost of training officers on a "black rifle" or wanted to be more PC and not "scare the public with military looking weapons". I think that last section is a crock of *****. Accuracy was between 1.75 and 2.68 at 50 yards. The rifle was designed for close quarters and not distances greater then 100.

Seems like it would make a decent home defence gun if you can use 870 parts like a surefire lighted forend.

I got one of them! Actually I really like mine alot, it even came with Wilson Combat(Scattergun Technologies)ghost ring sights. It was my only CA legal mag fed .223 for awhile until I built an AR. I still shoot it all the time when we go rabbit shootin.

I just wonder if the mag well could be adapted to the 7600 (or whatever Rems semi is). That might be worthwhile, but this... :rolleyes:

For 2" at 50 yards, I'll take something gas operated, thankyouverymuch. I would be so pissed off if I was an LEO and asked for a .223 and got one of these as a patrol rifle. I'm loathe to say it, but mini14 would even be better!

For the asking price of $689.90, that's damn close to a starter AR.

Yeah I personally would get the AR but for the few people that are still leary about getting an AR this will work with you pre ban hi-caps and no chance of getting bothered while out shooting it.

Thats the main problem. Remington sold these to dealers for about that price. We are blowing those out at cost :eek:
When I first saw one on the shelf I was excited, then my buddy came walking up with the price tag for it, I put it down real fast. I dont understand how remington could market this gun as a tacticool rifle when you can go and get AR-15s for that price.

I'd prefer the 16" Mini-14.

I know I will get flamed for this, but I still think it would be cool if this rifle had a selector switch so that you could just hold the trigger and pump away.

For the same money go get a crossfire.. Just as 'alternative lifestyle' AND you get a 12 gauge option!!!!

I've seen them on the Turners discontinued list for around the same $689 price. Anyone interested may want to give CDNN a call and see if they have any left. I bought one direct from them about 8 months ago for about $480 shipped after they removed the factory supplied 30 rnd mag. Complete total after transfer at my local dealer was less than $550.
