I had high hopes for this book, or at the very least, an expectation that it would be useful and informative.The Gun Digest Book of the Remington 870 would be better titled "Remington Ads and catalogs since 1951". There is very little, if any, original photography or illustrations in the book, and this lack of originality carries over to the writing, which varies between anecdotal and uninteresting, to needlessly detailed and uninteresting. There's just not a lot of meat on these bones.That said, this collection of Remington promotional photography is very attractive. If that's what you want, look no further.
Fantastic! This book is chocked full of useful information on the Remington 870. I could have shot this gun for years without knowing half of what is contained in these pages. I would recommend this for anyone who wants and needs information on the Remington 870. Mr. Hahn certainly knows what he is talking about in regards to this gun.
More information about 870 advertising than I was expecting. Thought it would have more technical content. Let the buyer beware they say !
I purchased this book (The Gun Digest Book of the Remington 870) on .com. It is filled with a lot of nice photographs and a little bit of interesting history. The book is primarily a coffee table book. It contains photographs of all of the brochures and advertisements on the 870 since it was first offered. I was hoping for more of an educational shop manual but it's not there. You may like it.
Great illustrations, specifications, and company history. Covered a wide range of models, their history, along with historic advertising. Cover depicts Remington's 10 millionth model 870 manufactured 13 April 2009.
I'm already trying to sell it, since I don't love 870's THAT much. It is well done, although, and generally worthy of a coffee table (wife won't allow that!).
This is an excellent reference book for any 870 owner or one just interested in good shotguns. The material presented was extensive making it valuable for thosewho ask "why" about this gun. I actually enjoyed the pictures and reprints a bit more than anything else.I loaned it to two friends. The first one really spoke highly of itwhen he returned it. I haven't been able to get the second fellow to bring it back yet.
