870 Police Dept Trade In

Last week my department traded in two 870P's. I asked the store to hold one for me and they did.

Parkerized, Speedfeed brand pistol grip stock, side saddle, Surefire Fore End and Iron Sight Gun Works Ghost Ring sights.

They cleaned it up and it looks pretty good.

They gave me a great price.

Price too good to pass up. They give a good price to officers from the agency that traded them in.

While not pristine, the guns were maintained. I know in this one the ejector has been replaced. That has been a weak point of several of ours and they have had to get replaced by a factory armorer.

Congrats on the 870- I have an older (2001 mfg) Police Magnums and love it.

Not trying to pry into your personal business but...can you share what you paid? I just bought an 870 police riot gun out of New Jersey, unknown what agency it came from, and was wondering if your purchase price was comparable.

For the record I paid $260 delivered to my FFL for this:

Tactical Shotguns

It's a 1968 vintage 870 Wingmaster model. The bluing is in excellent condition considering it's age and former vocation. The wood is decent, all things considered.

Thanks for any info.

Every once in a while a deal comes along. I wish I had one of our Wingmasters from the 80's. Nice wood and bluing. Bead only sight though.

My 870P was an Indiana State Police trade in. The birch stock was beat to hell but the metal was nearly immaculate. I bought a new take off set of 870P walnut from Vang Comp for $70 off ebay... It looks like a new gun...very nice added a Wilson Magazine extension....

Most of the police trade in 870 shotguns I have seen have carry wear but have not been shot much. They usually make for a good buy if you can find them.

This one was from my department and had been a SWAT Gun. It has an enormous amount of rounds through it and is in OK shape. Parkerizing on receiver a bit thin, the barrel a bit better. The ejector has been replaced. The gun is from approximately 1999. It was a bit overdue for replacement (should have been replaced before parts start to break) but should still be reliable.

Looks awesome, and sounds like you got a great deal! Can you do mag extensions in PA? If so, that's the only mod I'd do, just to increase capacity a bit.

You can. I won't bother though. I really don't know what that would take but I won't be putting any money into it.
