Hello GT,

I have been contemplating the purchase of a nighthawk shotgun, the already adds accessories justify the cost in my eyes so I don't need convincing on that end.

I am just stuck between the 870 & the 1100 that nighthawk offers. Issues such as reliability, practicality, the ability to change out a buckshot shell for a slug from the chamber are all factors that will sway my decision. The use for my shotgun will be HD, and training courses that will involve 350+ shells fired in one day, and this will be done numerous times.

Please opine on what tactical advantages either of these SG's have over each other. And also which would u prefer ur self based on what I want (870/1100)

Thanks in advance.s

Normally the correct answer is to get both but at that MSRP you may not have that option!

The edge in shooting comfort has to go to the auto and the pump probably gets the edge is pure keep it simple reliability. You can learn either platform, be it pump or auto, with all the various ways to load/unload and change rounds. It's your coin but if it were me, I'd opt for the 1100.

I own both an 870P and an 1187P.

The 1187P comes out sometimes for competition.

The 870P is what I would take to a fight.

I completely agree with bc
I have a few nice semi automatic shotguns and a nice Colt 6920 (another semi auto). But when it comes time to fight it will be the 870 and the Glock.
