Remington manufactured at least seven different semiauto shotguns from 1905 to 1963, when the Model 1100 was introduced. Approximately 62,000 Model 878 Automasters were made between 1959 and 1962.
The Remington Automaster shotgun was available in 12 gauge only with a 26-, 28- or 30-inch barrel (a vent rib was optional). In average condition, a Model 878 Automaster will retail in the $150 to $175 range. You can add 15 percent if it has a 26- or 28-vent-rib barrel with modified choke.
