The Remington 870 is a pump action shotgun model that is one of the best in the world. There are many different versions of the Remington 870 and each version is made for different purposes. The Remington 870 Police version is based off the Remington 870 Express model. The Express was always considered an important shotgun in the sporting, home defense and recreational shooting market. But despite the cosmetic differences of the various Remington 870 shotguns, they all have very similar parts inside of them. The Remington 870 Police uses the same platform as the 870 Express because they are both suitable for the streets and tactical use. However the functionality of the 870 Police version is superior to that of any other Remington 870 version.
There are three types of sear springs for Remington 870 shotguns:
-standard (4 to 5 lbs)
-competition (light pull, 3 pound)
-police (heavy, trigger pull between 5 and 8 lbs)
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.
J.R., thanks again for sharing information about Remington upgrades with us! I will post information about other shotgun upgrades tomorrow.
