Big Green’s new 870 DM series has a little something for everyone in a range that includes tactical and home defense models, a boar blaster, and a Tac-14 Shockwave firearm.

Announced Tuesday, Remington‘s fresh take on the tried-and-true 870 pump brings a three- or six-shell detachable magazine to the mix on each of a half-dozen new variants. Each 12-gauge ships with a single proprietary six-shot mag with the exception of the 870 DM Tactical /Predator — which sports Kryptek Highlander camo and is billed as a turkey and hog gun– that includes both a three and a six-shot detachable box, though Remington advises additional magazines will be available for purchase.

The 870 DM Magpul, the model first to hit the market, includes a Magpul SGA stock and MOE M-Lok forend with a Super Cell recoil pad. The 18.5-inch Rem Choke barrel includes an extended ported tactical choke and is equipped with XS steel front and ghost ring rear sights, the latter mounted on a Picatinny rail section. MSRP is $799.
