Big Green has released further details on the six new 12 gauge additions to their 870 shotgun line, each featuring a detachable magazine system.
As part of the above backgrounder on how the 870 DM series was developed, Remington says the line is not simply a kit that converts a plain Jane pump into accepting a detachable magazine, but an evolution brought about after years of experimentation. During the process, over 100,000 shells of more than 25 different types in both 2.75 and 3-inch were fired to ensure compatability.
“The 870DM is a concept that came about during a discussion as a group when we started talking about how can we advance the pump-action shotgun in some way,” says Daniel Cox, product manager for shotguns for Remington, going on explain that a quicker reload via box magazine was a logical progression. This translated to a gun that uses several unique components compared to legacy 870s to include a different receiver and breech bolt as well as a proprietary magazine well.
The below video, highlighting features, give a brief rundown of the six diverse models and shows off the differences between the two magazine sizes (three and six-shot).
