Short SHOT: [More later.] Remington has taken a leaf from its handgun counterparts, introducing a shotgun with polymer frame and other components. Called the “887 Nitro Magnum,” this 12-ga. pump still has a steel barrel and receiver, but that’s where the similarities to the reliable 870 end.
The external polymer shell protects the guts of the gun from corrosion. Ditto for the trigger plate, made from the same polymer. And though the TPA contains the fire control and carrier – similar to the 870 fire control – it also, uniquely, contains the right and left shell latches.
Gotta go! More to come from Orlando, FL.
