H&R Pardner is a Remington 870 copy and all parts interchange including the barrel with a spacer. It has a better fit and finish than the current production Remington 870 Express and is ironically imported by Remington which bought Marlin whcih bought H&R. For $200.00 it cannot be beat. Has universal owner satisfaction for quality and reliability. My gun store told me they have "sold hundreds" and have never had one returned for any reason. Check it out.
