    I have had one of these for two years and have not even fired it yet. It's like a piece of art and is just so nice to look at and fondle!
    It is very robust, well built with nearly perfect fit and finish and excellent ergonomics. There is a reason you don't see them come
    up for sale very often. They are the type of gun that even if someone wanted to sell one, there's a good chance that a friend or family
    member would snap it up before it went up for sale on a forum such as this one.

    If you're getting one, spend a bit more and find model 25047, the police version of the marine Magnum. Well worth it, my goes almost everywhere with me

    you likely won't find a police marine magnum. Catalog REM25047

    Has rifle sights on it. I don't know what the underlying model of the gun above is (express or wingmaster?) but this is a generic list for the 870 police obviously referring to blued versions:


    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 “synthetic magazine spring retainer” lock down 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.

    ** Acceptance of an offer via PM is a binding contract of sale under law in Canada. If you have no intention of following through on deals then do not make them with me. I leave pos/neg feedback as per the CGN EE Rules. Please note I ship expedited with $100 insurance and signature required. Additional coverage is up to you if required.

    The main visual differences on the Police model are the rifled sights and "POLICE" on the receiver.
