The Remington Camo seams to hold up as good as others. Same with pattern, the 1187 will pattern as good as most any if you take the time to pattern it and find the choke that works best with the load you are using in your gun.
By the way coots don't count, even if your 15.

Good luck,

I shot an 11-87 for 6 years, it should work fine for what you are going to use it for. Keep it clean and whatever you do don't over lube it. Very light lubrication on the mag tube, make sure the gas collar moves freely and that your O-ring doesn't get any cracks or tears in it.

Let me start out by saying I'm a Browning Guy I have 8 shot guns from a 4.10 ou to a 10 ga auto loader.
It's one thing to get a recommendation from a guy who shoots the gun he's recommending , obviously he's bias.
But I think for the money spent the Remington 1187 is the best thing going.
You get the most gun for your money.
My son shot one so long and so often when I took it in for repair the smithy came out from the back room and shook my hand.
Well I'll tell you he said , you should be proud there's not a moving part left on this thing that's not worn out.
I informed him it was my son who had unlimited access to my ammo stash and shot it every day after school.
In fact when we first moved to my ranch in 1991 it was a natural crow flight day after day , after ten years of being pounded by my son they quit flying over all together. He moved out in 2002 and they still fly around the property.
Long story short it's a great gun.

I shot a Remington 870 for well over 30 years and said I would NEVER own a semi-automatic. Well, old age and arthritis changed my mind. I've shot a Remington 11-87 now for 6 years and many thousands of rounds later, it's my go-to shotgun....

Loved mine, but I think there are better guns in that price range. Beretta A300, stoeger M3500. You can get the older beretta 391 or a SX2 for the same price.

The 3.5" 11-87 was very well known for having problems the 3" are ok, if you are buying used see if you can try it out first just to be sure you are not buying somebody's head ach.

Hat's right. The 3" 11-87 is darn near bullet-proof. The Super Mag (3.5") seems to have more issues.
Get the 3". It's all you need, and you should be very happy with it.
