Re: Remington 1187

I bought when they were a new model, there are many more variations now. I have nothing bad to say. Two observations from 20 years of toting one around:
They are heavy
You need to clean the O ring and gas tube after use or it will get gunked up.

Re: Remington 1187

Don't have a semi yet? If not, remember, you can/do kill your prey on the first shot. The 2nd & 3rd shot are not always necessary!!!
Awesome gun! Know how it works, clean it every so often, it'll take care of ya.

I've got the super mag, only shotgun I've ever owned to be honest, can do anything you need a shotgun to do.

Re: Remington 1187

I've had one for about 15 years. The only time it has ever failed to cycle on my was opening day of duck when I did a face plant into the swamp. I was holding it in my hand and it went fully into the mud. I washed it out as well as I could and started shooting. For the first hour or so it was a single shot, but then it blew all the junk out and cycled fine. Other than that I clean it once a year and change the o-ring.

Last few years though I have switched to a double, started with a SxS and now a dedicated O/U. Like Wadman said, that third shot is mostly just a hail mary. Even with switching guns for waterfowl I'll never get rid of it.

I do have a warning, a bunch of people I know or hunt with went out and picked up the Supermag when they first came out. They all ended up getting rid of them because they kept breaking. Not sure what the quality is like today though.

Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.
Good... Bad... I'm the guy with the gun.

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.
