Remington 870 ShurShot Synthetic Turkey

posted on June 3, 2013

Remington introduced its venerable Model 870 Pump in 1950 and has since produced over 10 million of them, making it the world’s most popular shotgun, if not one of the world’s most popular guns of any variety.

Since then dozens of models have been rolled out, including the Super Magnum, first offered in 1999, that holds 2¾, 3-inch, and mighty 3½-inch magnum shells.

Our latest Gun of the Week is a member of the 870 family, and one that probably saw its fair share of action in recent months, as hunters ventured into the woods in search of a spring turkey.

You can get a closer look at the Remington 870 ShurShot Synthetic Turkey below, in a video hosted by American Hunter's Jeff Johnston.
