100% American-made Model 870 has evolved to keep pace with the
rapidly changing needs of law enforcement.
Choose from wood or synthetic
stocks. Blued or parkerized finishes. Magazine extensions for
added firepower and quick-change barrels. Choice of bead,
rifle, or ghost ring sights. To simplify field maintenance,
all parts and assemblies are interchangeable, gun to gun. The
trigger plate assembly is quickly and easily removed for
inspection and cleaning. Double action bars deliver the
smoothest, surest operation in the business. The breech bolt
locks into the heat-treated barrel extension forming a rock
solid assembly with constant head space.
The Model 870 leads the field
in safety and performance features. A uniquely designed action
with balanced sear - plus inertia firing pin - prevents
discharge unless the action is completely closed and the
trigger is squeezed and released after each slot. The large,
side-ejection port stays unobstructed when shooting over
walls, car hoods, and other barriers; the blaze orange
magazine follower also permits quick, safe inspection of the
chamber and magazine. This positive, cross-bolt safety is
conveniently located near the trigger for fast operation, even
while wearing gloves.
A recoil pad on the wood and
synthetic stock models permit greater control by eliminating
slippage while firing. The grooved, steel-lined fore-end
provides a better grip, and sling swivel studs are standard on
It's no wonder
the Model 870 continues to be the shotgun of choice.
