Anyone here have an 870 with the ISS (J-lock safety)?

Post by Synchronizor » Sun Mar 31, 2013 8:50 am

I'm working on a video that goes over the various gun lock options for the 870. One thing I'll be mentioning is the J-lock ISS that used to come on some 870 models.

I had a friend who was going to let me do some filming with one of her ISS-equipped 870s, but our planned meet-up next week got canceled, and the two of us won't be in the same state for awhile after that.

So, is there anyone here with an ISS-equipped 870 who wouldn't mind uploading some images? I'd like to have something more to show than one bit from the owner's manual, but haven't had much luck finding decent images on the internet.

I've got an ISS trigger group that I replaced with a police model. It's just sitting in my parts bin. Would that help you out?

Yeah, that would be fine. I'm just looking for some good-quality images of the trigger guard showing the safety switch and indicator dots, preferably against a white background (nothing fancy, just a sheet of paper or something). Some shots of the key would be nice if you still have it, but images of that are easy to find elsewhere on the internet.

I can do that. Still got the key, so i can get pics of that, too. Can you PM me with an email address?

I can if you want to do it that way, or you could just post the images in this thread. Either way is fine with me, so whatever you want to do.

I was planning on taking a dozen or so pics so you could choose which ones you wanted to use. And they will be pretty big images.

Probably best to send them via email.

I will try to get them to you tomorrow evening.

Please post one pic here, I have never seen that type of safety.

Here ya go. As shown, with the pointer aligned with the white dot, the safety cannot be moved to the "fire" position. You have to insert the key (the green thing) into the "J" shaped opening and rotate the pointer to the red dot. You can then take the safety off.

Excellent video! You did a great job presenting a number of ideas for safe firearm storage.

Congrats on a job well done!
