Remington 870 Police Magnum Features

The Remington 870 Police Magnum is a derivative of the original 870 with notable modifications.  It retains the standard 4+1 capacity and almost all parts, but is built with either an 18 or 20 inch barrel and has a shortened forend to prevent it getting caught on equipment and other objects when climbing in or out of a squad car.

Remington 870 Police Magnum Ergonomics

The Remington 870 Police Magnum copies the 870’s overall shape, but negates the use of checkering on the stocks.  While all of the controls are in the same place, the handguard has been shortened to assist the user in entering and exiting vehicles by removing unneeded material that could get caught on wires or seatbelts or other objects.  Both the model with iron sights and the model with a front bead sight offer comfortable cheek welds for most users.

Remington 870 Police Magnum Fit & Finish

The Remington 870 Police Magnum has had different finishes throughout the years.  Receivers can be made of parkerized or blued steel while furniture can be cut from black walnut  or composite materials.  Older models tend to show superior craftsmanship as the newer models are known to have unsightly proud wood and metal finishes that quickly rust and discolor due to Remington changing their finishing techniques.
