Remington Arms Company, LLC., (“Remington”), is pleased to announce that the Mississippi Highway Patrol again chose the Remington Model 870 Police Magnum as their department-issued shotgun.

“The Remington Model 870 is rugged, reliable, easy to operate and accurate. We are proud to say that all of our 600 troopers now have a Model 870 shotgun in their patrol car and everybody is certified with it. No need for cross training, since every trooper now has the same shotgun,” said Phillip Hemphill of the Mississippi Highway Patrol.

“When the situation turns bad, our troopers don’t have to worry about their shotgun not performing. That is why we chose the Model 870.”

Since its introduction in 1950, nearly 10 million Model 870 shotguns have been produced. It remains the overwhelming choice for law enforcement divisions due to its historical dependability. Through numerous configurations and variants, the Model 870 platform is used for law enforcement, military applications and sporting purposes in more than 50 countries, including the United States.

You are all probably familiar with the standard Remington 870 shotgun. But there are also other versions of the shotgun model including the Remington 870 Express and the Remington 870 Police. The main differences between these two shotguns have to do with the parts that they’re comprised of and how they’re assembled. Remington 870 Police shotguns go through a more thorough quality control inspection before they are released. Aside from a visual inspection, the functionality of the shotguns is tested along with their firing capabilities. Once that is done, they go through one more final inspection before they get approved. The 870 Police shotguns are built in a highly secured area of a weapons plant located in Ilion, New York. This is an area that only creates military and law enforcement shotguns.

As I wrote earlier, Mesa Tactical Shotshell Carrier doesn’t work with long forends, so I had to choose the shorter one.

I have planned to use Hogue forend but when I have tested it on the shooting range it turned out that it is not a good idea to use Hogue forend and Knoxx stock. When shotgun moves backward after the shot Hogue forend moves together with your skin and it hurts. This happens because Hogue forend is overmolded and allows very good grip. It is fantastic but not with Knoxx stock.
