I have posted an instructions and video on How to Change a Safety on a Remington 870 Shotgun some time ago: Remington 870 Safety Replacement.
This is updated video in HD format.
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.
I have received new safety from S&J Hardware, it is more rounded and low profile. Previous model of safety for Remington 870 was the best on the market. This time it is even better. I really like that S&J enhances products and develops new upgraded versions.
Remington 870 Jumbo Safety from S&J Hardware is highly recommended! I use it personally and really like it.
Standard safety button on Remington 870 is too small. It is difficult to find it under stress or wearing shooting gloves. But this problem is very easy to fix. There are several alternative oversized safety buttons on the market. I have tried all of them and want to tell you about the one I like most.
