Older Rems, yes, I have two, and would buy another, if it was about 10 years old or so. Don't buy a "sportsman" model, what every you do, if you do go with a 11-87. I love remingtons, but in the rush to compete with companies making "cheap" guns, they did the same thing, offered a "cheap" gun, that is ruining their reputation.
I shoot a Versa Max now for waterfowl, and have had a few issues. As many stated, the 11-87 is good for waterfowl, but if your going to "really" hunt waterfowl, the 11-87 is going to take a beating, and will have some issues with it. The Versa max is made similar to the Benelli/Beretta Waterfowl guns, not a ton of moving parts to make the gun go bang, less to break. Waterfowl hunting guns are used from everything from a piece of precision shooting equipment, to a cane, to a boat oar., to a decoy retriever, to a smack a runaway goose in the head with the stock, to a help me get unstuck outta the mud thing....so they have to be touch, plus it's pretty common for them to at least once in their life, get totally submerged in water.
