    so i just checked big 5's website and they have whats called the Remingon 870 Security shotgun on sale this week. i believe it has a 20.5" barrel and holds 8 rounds.

    how does the "security model" differ from the 18" express synthetic? it's on sale through tomorrow so i'd like to know if i should jump on it :hs:

    Hmm never heard of that one. If its blued and has a plastic trigger guard I'd say its an express with a mag tube. If its parked and has a metal trigger guard I'd say its more of a police model varient. Those are just guesses though.

    i'll go in tonight to check it out. i asked on the phone how it differed from the 18" model and the guy said it was a bit longer because of the extra shell :dunno:

    after more searching on google and finding only one link that mentioned a "security" model 870 (thread on The High Road), i have come to the following conclusions:

    1) big 5 gave it the name "security" as an advertising campaign, its not named that by remington
    2) its almost identicle to the 18" express synthetic except ~2 inches longer and +1 capacity

    :dunno:

    sale price: $289
    reg price: $399

    whats funny is that the 18" express synthetic is $10 more than this (while on sale) and it holds 1 less round :dunno:

    probably the same save for a longer barrel & longer extension (not being a smartass :o)
