The Remington 870 is an adored pump-action shotgun that is used by hunters, police officers, target shooters, competitive shooters, and military officers. But like any good weapon, it needs to have a suitable safety button that someone can switch on and off in a moment’s notice. You don’t want to have the risk of not being able to push the button fast enough when you’re in a hurry or desperate situation. The factory safety button that comes with the Remington 870 is a perfect example of this. A lot of owners claim this factory safety button is too small for their fingers, which causes them to waste precious time by having to bring the button close to them and push down hard on it. If you’re in a combat situation or need to shoot something quickly, you must be able to keep your hand on the handle while disengaging the safety at the same time. This can be done with your thumb if the safety button on the weapon is big enough.
All of the available oversized safety buttons are made for right-handed shooters only, check following article if you are left-handed: Left Hand Safety for Remington 870
Tip: Add some oil on the new safety button for smoother work when replacing factory safety button.

Now I can tell you more about this product because I finally had a chance to test it on the range. Small advice – try to shoot from the hip level first, this way you understand what recoil you need to control and will not smash your teeth with pistol grip as some guys on YouTube do.
I didn’t have a special tool to remove receiver pins for a long time. In the beginning it seemed like there was nothing wrong with pushing out pins with a screwdriver or allen key. After several years, however, I now see scratches on my receiver and am not happy about it.
