I have a win 1300. I have been very happy with it but today went out and put a box of shells through it and the noticed the safety pin wouldn't full push in. trigger would fire with it in and out . So this might be a excuse to buy a new shotgun. I was thinking about a new rem 870 12 ga 26 or 28 inch premier. I was wondering if these 870s today are as good or worse than the guns made like 10 or 20 yrs ago ?
