the model 870 is a Remington. Even after a lot of use by the police, the Remingtons still function great. As far as the model 12 Winchesters go, I can't help you there.

I don't know what the difference would be between 00 buck and other shot. But, I have a Win. Model 1912 (made in 1918) that has had hundreds of rounds shot through it by my grandfather, father, and myself, with no malfunction. Still pumps smoothly and has never failed to fire, extract or eject the shells.

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?

It doesnt matter what size shot is used. I would guess you could shoot either one for the rest of your life and not break it.

I was an armorer in the USMC for 6yrs. In my humble opinion both the model 12 and and mod 870 are superbly built shotguns. I have never witnessed a catastrophic. failure in an 870. That being said any and all mechanical actions will fail. eventually. In terms of bow many? Well, that is a number for either model or manufacturer I have yet to encounter.

ps: 150 double odd? 870's are far superior than that number.

pps: I have encountered a catastrophic failure in a mossberg 500... took 6 rounds of 2 3/4" #5 shot. My friend survived. The shotgun did not. He got the rabbit.

I agree with the 1,500,000 rounds. I think that on the 1,500,001st shot, the Model 12 disintegrates. So, it's best to accurately count the shots fired. When you reach the 1,500,000 mark, let someone else fire the next round. Wink

My borther has a Westernfield 16ga pump that was our grandfathers duck gun bought right after Korea. Grandpa wasn't the best duck hunter so that thing got a chance to shoot a LOT of ammo. When my brother received it in 1978 when grandpa passed away the gun was so well worn you could hold it by the wrist and shake it getting a round to chamber out of the magazine and for it to then lock up ready to fire.

I can't imagine how many thousands of rounds of shot has gone through that gun but my brothers and his buddies use to go out and in an afternoon bust a case of clays with it almost every Sat during the summer.

Shotguns last a long time
