If you own a Remington 870, Remington 11-87, or Remington 1100, and you want better accuracy when shooting slugs, then you will want to upgrade your weapon’s factory sear spring with the lighter spring. You can read about Remington factory sear springs available in previous review: Remington 870 Sear Springs (Light Pull, Standard, Police (Heavy))

The Remington 870 shotgun has three types of sear springs including the standard, competition, and police. The standard sear spring gives a trigger pull of between 4 to 5 pounds. You will find this spring inside all Remington 870 Express shotguns. If you just use your shotgun occasionally for hunting or home protection then the standard should be fine. But if you are a competitive shooter or want to shoot fast then the competition sear spring will provide a much lighter pull at about 3 pounds. As for the police sear spring, it is a heavy duty sear spring with a trigger pull of up to 8 pounds. This is the safest and most reliable trigger pull because of all the effort needed to pull the trigger.

Remington 3 Pound Competition Sear Spring and Non-MIM Extractor

Here are two more updates from J.R.:

I installed a Remington competition sear spring and non MIM extractor. The Remington 3 pound competition sear spring has quite a noticeable difference on trigger pull and the non MIM extractor is a must since my factory extractor was in very poor condition from break in. Be careful when removing and installing the extractor because the plunger & spring will go flying.
