They both will work I like the 870s I like where the safty is located other than than that they are both good working guns. Do not think the 500 was made when i got my 870. You can get good deals on both.

I like the Rem 870 too. They are definitely built to last and are an excellent choice.

They are both well made guns and are still around for a reason. But the 870 is definitely mo' betta. Haha. You made a good choice.
