S&J Hardware (http://www.sjhardware.com) is a Canadian manufacturer & retailer of firearms accessories and other shooting-related products. They offer a number of add-ons and replacement components for shotguns, including a line of magazine extensions for the Remington 870 and others. A lot of S&J Hardware’s products have proven popular in the 870 community, such as their magazine followers and Velcro shell carriers, and I’ve personally used several of their accessories for years with good results. Their magazine extensions always sounded really good on paper, but I really hadn’t seen them in the wild much, and had no personal experience with them. This came up in a discussion on the Rem870.com forums, and soon afterward, Scott Mueller, S&J’s United States distributor (http://www.sjhardware.us), contacted me asking if I would be interested in having one sent over for evaluation. Obviously I was interested.

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.

I always wanted to test a detachable shotshell carrier. The idea of such side saddle is very simple, you can attach shotshell carrier when needed and remove when you don’t use it. And the best thing is that you don’t need to disassemble you Remington 870 to remove/install detachable shotshell carrier.

When you think of using a firearm for home defense you might think of a handgun because it is smaller and easier to carry around. But you should also think about using a Remington 870 for defending your home as well. This pump action shotgun makes it easy for any gun owner to hit their target without having to be 100% accurate. After all, even if you practice shooting with a handgun at a shooting range and hit the target each time, it is a little different when you have to shoot a human target that is trying to hurt you. Your adrenaline will be all spiked up and you may have trouble concentrating enough to accurately aim your gun and fire at the assailant. But with a Remington 870, all you really need to do is point the gun in the general direction of your target and fire. The pellets from the shell are bound to strike the person and stop them from trying to hurt you or your family. Not only will it stop them, but it will do far more damage to them than a handgun ever would.
