Better than expected, a Remington Model 887, 12 gauge
pump action shotgun, Black Synthetic, 28” bbl.
Basically the Glock of the shotgun world.

Remington’s finish on the M887 is their proprietary polymer
finish “ArmorLokt“ over metal. The M887 looks big and bulky,
very utilitarian. Weighs 7.5 pounds. Also is easy to use and
safe in handling, which I liked.

Prior to the Pheasant hunt, I field stripped it to clean it.
Even took the Trigger Group out. All was easy to do.
After re- assembly, all worked smoothly as before.

For the Pheasant hunt I became the caretaker of the
M887. Even though I didn’t have to worry about
scratching it, I treated it as if it was the last one on

The reason I ended up borrowing the M887 was that
steel shot had to be used, and my vintage shotguns
we’re a no go.
