Re: Remington 1187
I own 2, the first one is just about "wore out" after 20 some years, the second one is a newer model. Both these guns are the 3" magnum-SP. I did hear the first couple years they make the Super Mag, they had some issues, but I think they have been resolved.
I don't know how they are now, as I now shoot the Versa Max, which is a wonderful gun. One thing for sure, don't buy the "sportsman" version of the 11-87. Have had two buddies get them, and they are bad. The sportsmans are cheaper guns, available for about $550, the SP version is a much nicer gun, and will run about 8-900.
I would not complain a bit about the 2 11-87's I own.
