Clutch, give Jamie a call @ Boltworks Tactical Firearms in Dryden, NY (they have a fb page and a website) I'll bet he will fix you up! Great guy, great gun shop, tell him I sent you.
870, don't base your opinion of auto loaders on an 1187, my opinion is that they were the "K" car of guns......cheap price, cheap built! They helped Remington out of a slump in sales but I feel it hurt their reputation. I own a 1100 that I have owned since the late 1970's it has NEVER failed me. Remington has now stepped up to compete with Benilii and Beretta, you might want to look at the new Browning A-5 (Browning went through their own slump when they moved production to Japan) I had one that was worthless! They're back in Belgium now and quality is back.
