I am really glad I wasn't the only one that had to have this explained.

I'm with you on this one. Unless it has some cool historical context it's a projectile launching device mostly used to break things and on occasion to kill something tasty.

I always thought that until I shot some really nice guns. I grew up shooting an old model 12 poly choke shot gun. I thought it was really nice, and it is, but it's worth $200 on a good day. Then I was gifted a browning citori, and my eyes were opened to what a good shot gun is.
Go shoot an 870 express then Marns police magnum, you will notice the difference.

Like my dad's redline?

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Picked up a shield in 40 cal last week. Nice little carry piece.

Now to find some mags.... I can't find a 6 round flush mag anywhere in town or online that isn't sold out or on backorder.

Here's the technical mumbo-jumbo....


-870 Police shotguns go thru a special 23 station check list – ranging from visual inspection, functional testing, test firing, and final inspection.

- All Police shotguns are assembled in a “special build area” at the plant in Ilion, NY. This section is secured and serves only to build LE and Military shotguns, with the same factory personnel working at that assignment each shift.

- All parts that enter the “special build area” are visually inspected by hand to ensure top quality and functionality.

- Due to heavy recoil in buck and slug loads, all 870 Police guns have a longer magazine spring which ensures positive feed and function.

-A heavier sear spring is used to generate a reliable, positive trigger pull between 5 and 8 lbs.

-A heavier carrier dog spring is used to ensure when the carrier elevates the shell, it will be held there until the bolt can push it into the chamber. This ensures positive feeding when using heavier payload rounds

-Police shotguns do not have an ISS (Integrated Safety System) which is a locking mechanism on the safety of commercial shotguns. This type of locking mechanism can cause delay to an officer who needs the weapon but does not have the appropriate key. LE shotguns have the standard, proven, cross bolt safety.

-The fore-end on the Express model is longer and not compatible with many police shotgun vehicle racks.

-The Police shotguns utilize the heavy duty SPEEDFEED Stocks and Fore-ends.

-The Express model will not allow for the addition of an extension tube without physical modification to the tube and barrel, which can nullify the warranty.

- The Express model has a BEAD BLAST BLUE finish while the Police models utilize either High Luster bluing or Parkerization.

- The Express model utilizes a synthetic trigger housing while the Police models use a compressed metal housing.

- The Police shotgun barrel is locked down with a “ball detent” system in conjunction with the magazine cap vs. a lesser grade's synthetic magazine spring retainer lockdown as used on the Express system.

- The receivers used in Police guns are “vibra honed” to smooth out rough finishes and remove burrs before parkerization or bluing.

- Police shotguns use machined ejectors and extractors, as opposed to powdered metal cast which are utilized on the Express models.

If anyone has an eotech on their rifle, could I ask you to violate gun safety rule number 1? I'm wondering if the reticle is visible from the bad guy end of the sight in low light situations. If anyone knows, please chime in. Thanks.

Also, if anyone knows where there's an AR short barrel, class III upper available legally, please let me know price. Thanks.

there is always stuff on nevada shooters, also, lots of places on line should have stuff in stock.

You know the uppers are not "Class" anything right? You can buy an 8" upper shipped to your door. It only because class III if it's being put on a rifle lower.

Like isaid, its not any on big thing, but sort of a sum of small things that just makes it a "higher grade" if you will
