Which Is Faster – Old School Remington 870 Or New Remington 870 DM?

In an amusing – and incredibly well edited video – photographer Yamil Sued compares which Remington shotgun is faster in sending 10 rounds down range – the 870 or the new box mag-fed 870 DM.

Obviously, the Remington 870 DM is quicker to reload for the average person. However, if you look at the video, the old school Remington 870 is quicker to get off the first five shots. I wonder what the difference would have been if Yamil had used one of those loading devices for use in 3-gun competition.

Remington 870 On Gun Stories

The Outdoor Channel’s Gun Stories returns to discuss the Remington 870 pump shotgun. It is the best selling shotgun in history with over 10 million sold.

In the battle over which modern pump shotgun is better, I am torn between the 870 and the Mossberg 500/590. With its twin rails, the 870 is smoother and probably more reliable. However, I find the tang safety on the Mossberg more user friendly. My first shotgun, a 12-gauge full choked shotgun made by Savage for a hardware chain, had the tang safety and it could be I just got used to that.

UPDATE: I can’t get the embedded video to play and I’m working on that.
