Remington Model 887 Nitro Mag Tactical Shotgun Wins NRA Golden Bullseye
Madison, NC –-(Ammoland.com)- Now in their ninth year, the National Rifle Association (NRA) Publications Golden Bullseye Awards acknowledge the finest products available in the shooting sports.
The winners are selected by a seven-member committee consisting of editors, graphic designers and veteran NRA Publications staff, representing more than a century of collective experience in the shooting and hunting industry. Remington is proud to announce that the 887 Nitro Mag Tactical has been selected as the 2011 Shooting Illustrated Shotgun of the Year.
The new Model 887 Nitro Mag Tactical combines supreme toughness and dependability with a handy 18 1/2″ barrel, a 2-shot magazine extension and a barrel clamp with integral Picatinny rails for mounting flashlights or other accessories. It also includes a ported, extended tactical Rem™ Choke and receiver mounted on Picatinny rail.
The Remington 887 Nitro Mag is the most durable shotgun on the planet. Born of the gunmaking expertise that brought you the best-selling, most trusted shotgun of all time, the Model 870, the Model 887 Nitro Mag is an armor-clad warrior here to carry the torch of our great pump-gun legacy through the most extreme conditions on earth.
Our Exclusive ArmorLokt process seal the receiver and barrel in a vault of weather-impervious synthetic armor that’s both completely rustproof and tough as nails. Similar to the Model 870, its receiver is crafted of solid steel and the barrel is hammer forged to last a lifetime. Twin steel action bars ensure smooth, positive chambering and ejection. The extremely rugged synthetic stock and fore-end are ergonomically contoured to offer a positive grip and comfortable handling.
NRA Publications will present its annual Golden Bullseye Awards during a special breakfast at the 2011 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania held on Friday, April 29, 2011.
