My 870 Police

Post by XTrooper » Sat Oct 19, 2019 2:29 am

Here are a few pics of my 870 Police SKU # 82760 and some target photos of my latest range time with it. It has an 18" barrel with improved cylinder choke, parkerized finish, 6+1 shell capacity, and low-profile rifle sights. The two loads I was testing this week were Federal Premium LE 1oz Maximum Hydra-Shok HP rifled slugs (LE127 RS) and Federal Premium LE Flitecontrol 9 pellet 00 buckshot (LE127 00). They both performed very well. The 25-yard shots were from the bench, the shots at 15 yards were shot offhand.

Nice rig. Simple yet lethal.

Thanks, amigo! I've since added a Vang Comp Dome Head safety, an S&J Hardware Type 2 follower, then called it a day.

There aren't many mods that you need to make to one of these, in truth. Very nice.
