Remington 870 Police, description, price, advantages, differences
The Remington 870 is a pump action shotgun model that is one of the best in the world. There are many different versions of the Remington 870 and each version is made for different purposes with different accessories and upgrades. The Remington 870 Police version is based off the Remington 870 Express model. The Express was always considered an important shotgun in the sporting market. But despite the cosmetic differences of the various Remington 870 shotguns, they all have very similar parts inside of them. The Remington 870 Police uses the same platform as the 870 Express because they are both suitable for the streets. However the functionality of the 870 Police version is superior to that of any other Remington 870 version. They are made to be superior because they are used by the military, law enforcement, security guards and correction officers. These aren’t jobs where people would use their shotguns just to go hunting with. These jobs require shotguns with the best speed, balance and accuracy. Otherwise the person’s own life could be at risk from the dangerous person they are trying to stop.
There are Remington 870 Police shotguns with different stocks (including recoil-reducing stocks), sights (including ghost ring sights) forends, flashlights and other upgrades available from the market.
The Remington 870 Police pump shotguns are put through a vigorous inspection of 23 different attributes before they are issued to authorities. These inspections include visual inspections, test firing, functionality testing, pump testing, and more. The 870 Police shotguns are not assembled in the same area of the commercial plant as the other Remington weapons. All police issued weapons are assembled in a special building area of the plant that is secured for factory personnel only. When shotgun parts enter this special building area, they are visually inspected by hand in order to make sure they are good quality and completely functional. These inspections reduce the chances of an assembled gun malfunctioning later on when they are being used by the authorities. Since shotguns have a lot of recoil, the Remington 870 Police and Remington 870 Police Magnum shotguns use longer magazine springs to help increase its function and feed ability. Most importantly, these shotguns have no special safety system built into them like some other 870 models. This safety system is a locking mechanism used in some commercial shotguns. So naturally, this feature was taken out of the police issued shotguns because it could delay the officer’s ability to defend themselves against a suspect.
Overall, the 870 Police shotgun is the perfect weapon for any law enforcement official who has to go up against dangerous people on the streets or in the battlefield. Yon can find new and used Remington 870 Police for sale for about $500.
