Model 870 Special Purpose Marine Magnum

The Remington Model 870 Special Purpose Marine Magnum is a pump-action hunting shotgun chambered in 12 gauge. The M870 is a family of pump-action shotguns with a variety of hunting and tactical models. However, the Marine Magnum is one of the most unique. It is resistant to corrosion and water because the 18″ barrel’s finish is electroless nickel plated inside and out.

In a nutshell, electroless nickel plating deposits a nickel finish on the metal’s surface without using an electric current. This procedure deposits the finish evenly as opposed to an electroplating nickel finish. However, it doesn’t have as long of a lifespan.

Otherwise the Marine Magnum features a black synthetic stock with checkered grips. A single bead front sight and it comes with a padded Cordura shell bag. It is also available with a black TriNyte finish even though Remington has discontinued production of that model. Remington recommends the Marine Magnum for hunting small or any winged game.
