if you scroll down the page you will see a post that says Remington 887 issues and one that says Remington 887 nitro those should give you the information your looking for.
if you can read this your almost as smart as a dolphin.

buy a NOVA the 887 is a nightmare.. Mine was bought back buy remington. Why would you buy a plastic piece of junk? Dont make the mistake I did... I now own a Benelli Nova which is ten times the gun for the same price..

i have been looking at several different brands i wont buy a mossberg or a stoeger. had a stoger p-350 but i never patterned cuz of the barrel being bent. dont like the mossbergs cuz i have had them bottom eject and jam. I dont like the feel of brownings. im looking at a winchester sxp a nova was looking at a weatherby but i want a 3.5 inch gun. I know i dont need one but i want one.

I had a nova and super nova loved those guns. let my brother and his friend borrow them a couple years ago while i deer hunted and they got stolen out of there truck. I cried damn near because those were going to be my daughters guns when she got old enough.

Im dead accurate with the 887, sadly had a decent amount of malfunctions with it though.

stoger m3500, buy one. trust me.

I have a 887 nitro mag in duck blind camo.. this is going on season 3 for ducks.. The first season the safety pushed right out brought it back to gander Mtn and the said that there was no safety spring in it so they fixed it.. Then last year season 2 it was acting up and keep jamming on me so I brought it back to gander with a free clean Coupon that I got when I bought the gun thinking that there was loon crap and bog crap in it... A month goes by and never Hurd anything Rome gander so I called and they said they had to ship it off to Remington to be fixed finally got it back a month and a half later, the put a new Mechanism on it so it changed the Serial number so when I went to pick it up I had to go through the whole Process of buying a new gun just to get mine back... I'm thinking awesome I got a new gun but still has the old stock and Barrel on it but everything else was new... Then about a week ago I thought I would go brush up on my shooting first time shooting it after I got it back and got about 13 rounds through it and it locked up Tighter then a Moose's ass during fly season... So now I had to bring it back again and duck season is two weeks away.. Call Remington to see what there turn around time was and it was 16 days from the time they get it plus 6 days of shipping there and back.. To anyone looking at buying one I say no way.. I keep falling back to my 870 super mag express that I bought 8 years ago and it has never let me down. (Anyone else have this many problems in this short amount of time with this gun?) I say get a 870 or a versa max..

An 870 express SM would cover all your needs and judging by it's track record, would be more reliable than the 887. I hunt with several fellas that use SM's and these guns have had very few issues. And the few issues they had have been easy fixes or due to lack of maintenance. I own only one 3.5" gun which is a VM and it's only because they don't make em in 3". The only benefit to a 3.5" gun IMO is that if you run out of shells and your buddy is using 3.5s you can use his and keep shooting. I would suggest considering a 3" gun and gain some reliability... I own two 3" express 870s that have been flawless. Much like my Versamax and Wingmaster. :biggrin:

Go to the store and hold one and cycle it a few times, be careful not to cut your finger off. My buddy has one and I think it is garbage. I really wanted one when they came out but I'm glad I didn't get one and stuck with my 870. I think someone said this already but you can pick up the waterfowl version of the 870 at Walmart for about $350. It shoots 3 1/2s and will be camo. For that price there are much better options.

Dad won a 887 at a du dinner. Jammed on the first 2 boxes of shells. Sent it back to Remington. They sent it back and said it was fixed. Nope. Sent it back to Remington. They sent pops a new versa max. I loved it so munched I upgraded from old faithful 870 wing master and got a new versa max now. Love it. Not a single problem

Be sure and take a look at the H&R 1871. I think its the best pump gun on the market today. $174 at Walmart for the black synthetic stocked version.
