The title nails it. I picked up an 870 Express TALO edition today on a whim primarily because it didn't have a j-lock on it, the price wasn't bad, and I found myself in a situation where I needed a shotgun but going home to get a one wasn't practical. I thought all 870's but the 870 Police had the J-lock, is the TALO an exception to this rule? No complaints by any means, I'll gladly live j-lock free and be grateful that I don't have to do anything to this particular gun get there. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
