    Seems to be a pretty fair trade. I wouldn't pay 550 for a used 870 or a used g26.

    If you feel good about the deal then do it. I find recent production 870's to be just as good as anything else. I don't buy into the "early production is the best" policy but hey, that's just me. I'm no expert. IMHO, if it goes boom when needed, its a good shotgun.

    Yea my 26 is NIB. Tough to let that go for a shotgun I may be able to find for much much cheaper.

    Just my .02 here....

    None of the "tactical" crapola on that 870 is likely to make any difference if your plan is to just stick it in a closet and rely upon on it for home defense. You will be just as well protected by a plain-jane 870 Express like mine; wooden furniture, the standard 4 round magazine, an 18.5" barrel and a $5.99 Uncle Mikes elastic sleeve on the buttstock to hold extra shells. Were it me, I would keep the G26 and save up my pennies for a more affordable, no-frills shotgun.
