Why does the Remington Model 887 Nitro Mag have the word mag at the end? I know it stands for magnum. But why put it in the name?

Just want to know because it takes all loads including the 3 1/2 magnum turkey loads. So why put magnum in the name when all shotguns practically can.

Well no there are quite a few shotgun models won't chamber 3 1/2 rounds.

Which sounds more manly, "357" or "357 magnum"? "Condom" or "magnum condom"?

The simple answer is market research has found that the name of the product plus the word magnum make it more appealing either due to size or power assumptions based on the addition of "magnum".

Funny but incorrect. It means the gun will chamber the 3 1/2 rounds.

A good chunk of the shotguns out there won't digest those 3 1/2" mag shells quite so nicely. But, on your behalf, yes, nearly EVERY newer Remington 870 (an 887 is pretty much an 870 covered in bedliner) series shotgun has a 3 1/2" chamber. And they sell really well, so i can really see where you're coming from.
