Here is the list of the most affordable yet really important upgrades for your Remington 870 shotgun.

1. Carrier Latch Spring ($4.84)

Carrier elevates the shell and it will be held there until the bolt can push it into the chamber. Carrier dog spring upgrade upgrade ensures positive feeding when using heavier rounds.

Carrier dog spring upgrade is very simple. It is as important as extractor replacement. Many custom Remington 870 shotguns have better carrier dog spring.

Ensure none of the tubing protrudes past the metal so there is no interference with the smoothness of the safety. Take a little lube and rub the tubing clean then reinstall safety in the trigger group.

Here is beautiful Remington 870 shotgun which I saw on a shooting range recently. It has a lot of different tactical upgrades and accessories for Remington 870 shotgun.

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.

Very good video about gun safety rules:

1. All guns are always loaded.
2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

Be safe!

Follow up on NBC’s Attack on Remington Arms

Dear readers of the Rem870.com blog, thank you for all your comments about the NBC’s Attack on Remington Arms. Your support clearly shows that report was fabricated and that our favourite shotgun is safe and reliable.

Here’s 4 minute video which clearly shows that all information about Remington 870 problems is fabricated:

First of all, police reports and firearm inspection say that subject’s shotgun, the Remington 870, functions normally in all respects. What else can be said? If shotgun functions normally, then maybe it was common problem with broken safety rules?

Also, NBC’s expert has tested Remington firearms trying to reproduce the “problem” with Common Fire Control Trigger Assembly, ang guess what? He couldn’t reproduce that!

This NBC’s attack on Remington Arms is totally fabricated and ridiculous!

What do you think about this? Please leave a comment.
