    I remember a post by aippi maybe that listed a few small parts and springs that should be upgraded. The MIM extractor and some springs I think. It had a number to call Remington and part numbers. I can't find it to save my life (pun intended). Help please.

    And replacing the MIM extractor with the forged one. Once the extractor and carrier dog spring are replaced, you will have the 870P in terms of the trigger and receiver group. Brownells carriers the parts as well as the Rem County Store.

    Found this at AR15.com:

    (870 Police) Heavy SEAR Spring #F97642

    http://www.remingtoncountrystore.co...=1&categoryid=3566&productid=3417&topcat=1038


    (870 Police) Heavy Carrier Dog Follower Spring #F16966 is to be used. It's actually a carrier latch spring. (its an 1100 part, but its what Remington uses in their 870P)

    http://www.remingtoncountrystore.co...=1&categoryid=3564&productid=3231&topcat=1038


    (870 Police) Milled Extractor #F16176

    http://www.remingtoncountrystore.co...=1&categoryid=3566&productid=3215&topcat=1038


    (870 Police) Metal Trigger Group #F10220
    The real expert's say the plastic guard is actually stronger. It won't break like the metal one will.

    I don't want the heavier sear spring or the metal trigger group. I put the part numbers in the Rem. Country Store for the carrier latch spring and the forged extractor, they don't have them. Found them both at Midway, which is sweet because I had 2 other items in my shopping cart.

    Aippi prefers the plastic one. Good enough for me.

    The extractor was back-ordered at Midway so I got the carrier latch spring and extractor at Brownell's. Now I will be up to Po-Po standards. Here's my new 25077 with one piece magazine tube:

    Here's some Military 00 buck I picked up at Cabela's for $4.99 for a box of 5:

    FYI - The OD green shells you have are just a marketing gimmick. Tests show these are nothing more than the Winchester 15 pack buckshot you can buy at Walmart for $10. It just comes in a plain box with some OD hulls.

    Disclaimer - I bought some too and wasn't overly impressed with it.

    Hornswaggled? I wouldn't say that. Instead, I'd say the Winchester's marketing was successfully executed.

    That's because the county store and the parts dept and separate. Call the number above. They have the parts


    Sent from my iPhone... which probably auto-corrected something wrong
