October 17, 2006

Madison, N.C. – Turkey hunting will never be the same with the introduction of the Model 870 Special Purpose Synthetic (SPS) Super Magnum MAX Gobbler shotgun. This heavy-hitting 12 gauge pump action will interchangeably handle 2 3/4, 3 and 3 1/2-inch magnum shells and with its Realtree® AP Green camo package, adjustable Knoxx SpecOps™ recoil-reducing stock, Williams® FireSights® system and additional enhancements from Remington, this Model 870 delivers maximum gobbler-stomping power and performance.

This featured-packed, Super Magnum pump action starts with the ultra reliable and smooth-operating twin-action bar design; solid-steel milled receiver and superior handling properties of the legendary Model 870. Key features
that optimize this pump action for the hardcore turkey hunter include a Knoxx SpecOps synthetic stock, designed for instant length of pull adjustment from 12 to 16 inches and incorporates a patented recoil compensating system which provides significant recoil reduction. The pistol grip design also allows for solid-handling and exceptional pinpoint accuracy. The 23-inch rifle-sighted, Rem™Choke barrel is topped with Williams FireSights front and adjustable rear fiber optic sights for quick target acquisition in low light conditions. For the option of adding an optics system, the receiver has been drilled and tapped for a Weaver-style rail mount. High performance turkey guns require full camouflage and this Model 870 wears the latest camo pattern from Realtree– All-Purpose™ Green HD™ designed for concealment in the spring turkey woods. The MAX Gobbler also comes with a Super Full Turkey choke tube for optimum patterns with today’s high performance turkey loads and a padded camo sling.
