I have a chance to buy a Rem. 870 express,it has the checkered forend. I really want a ribbed forend, can I buy one? If not, I plan on going with a new Maverick88. The Rem.870 is used by the way. This will be my first shotgun.

Man....I think I'd bet the farm you can find a ribbed forend for your 870.......they made a real lot of em :lol: .....If it were me I'd do a lot of searching before I'd settle for a Maverick 88....I don't really have anything against Mossberg products as such...I had a 500 for quite a few years...it worked fine...used it as a swamp creeper...It's just that going for the extra lower priced version of the lowest priced bargin maker model seems like underkill.......hell...look around for the ribbed forend.....Art

thanks Art, I can get the used express or the new Maverick for the same price. I've been really checking out and researching the Maverick, and most of the talk seems positive on it. I haven't paid any attention to the Remingtons because I figured they were way out of my price range. I like the looks of the Maverick, something about the ribbed forend. I may go check out the Remington tomorrow, they'll have to order the maverick if I want it.
