    Trying to pick up a HD shotgun. These are about the same price, <300

    The Nova is only 4+1 and the extension tube is ~100 bucks.

    for the same price the 870 is 7+1, I guess modability goes to the 870 plus the Nova is kind of funky looking.

    Well, yeah. What he said.

    Having a firearm with a shitty aftermarket blows. You don't want to find this out the hard way. 870.

    nova is the biggest piece of shit shotgun in my opinion. it is also the gun that was brought in the most and shipped back to the company for repair issues.

    Remington 870 ftw. If you want to save a few bucks you can get a Mossberg 500 but if I were going to buy one new I'd get the 870.

    I don't have an 870, but I love my nova. Never had a problem with it.

    No experience with the Nova so I can't say if its good or not but as others said not much of an aftermarket for it so let your future plans determine which one to go with, if you want to tactical it out go with the remmy or a mossy.

    I've had both and I like the 870 more. Plus like everyone says, the aftermarket for the 870 so much better. I couldn't find anything for the Nova.
