These photos represent the overall condition of these Remington 870 Police Magnum police trades. Price is for one Remington 870 police trade shotgun.
As with many used and police trade-in firearms, these may contain scratches and/or signs of wear. This is not always the case, but should not be unexpected.
I just love this Ohio State Patrol shotgun. Functions flawlessly and looks practically new! I've purchased many police trade firearms from SOSS and they always are nicer than described. Thanks again SOSS!
This shotgun is awesome! I have to admit that I had my misgivings about buying a used gun unseen via the internet. But I have wanted one of these old sturdy Remington 870 Police Magnum shotguns for a while now. The finish has a few minor and very small scuff marks on it, but no rust anywhere, and the barrel is bright and shiny. The action is so smooth and silky, and of course I love the sound it makes when you operate the pump. Fantastic weapon, and I'm so glad I jumped on the opportunity.
This is your classic, workhorse 870P. Virtually new action, very little use, and very minor external wear from riding in a police rack. For all intents and purposes it is a new gun. Took it to sight it in, and it was already zeroed with two brands of slugs I use, Brenneke & Fiocchi. Patterned very well with several bands of buckshot. Side saddle is nice, just need to locktite the screws as they were a little loose. While these are available, I cannot imagine why you'd buy new.
I bought this gun to have a collector piece from OSP. I held off for a long time because the price is too high. I finally bit last week when they were on sale for $469. I knew it was still too high but I wanted a gun from OSP and the reviews looked pretty good. The gun arrived. I agree, it has not been shot much if at all. Gun is tight. However, it is very rough cosmetically and has been beat around. Mine had a sanded dime size rust spot on the magazine tube. Front and rear sling studs are gone. The pictures do not show it, but there was a nice gold OSP emblem on the base of the grip stock. Mine was tore up and the writing was gone. Im guessing thats why they didnt show a picture of it. If this had been intact, I would have been satisfied with my purchase. Im sad and disappointed. These are $300 guns tops. I hate I got sucked in. Buyer beware, used guns are a pig in a poke.
Couldn't be happier. Appears unfired. Only slight wear near the end of the extended mag tube, probably from putting it in and out of a storage rack. They don't make them like this anymore. If you've been wanting an 870 this is the one to get.
Shotgun received is 98% nearly new. Internal and external. There is no carbon in the breech area, so I don't think it was shot much if any. The side saddle was loose and flopping around so i took an allen wrench and tightened it up...good as new. Park finish the 2% is light handling marks and maybe put in the rack in a cruiser a few times. Markings are all crisp. Sling swivel stud in mag tube extension clamp. No sling swivel stud in the buttstock. The only department markings is a label with some numbers cover with clear tape. All in all, pleased with the hardware and the history being used in law enforcement despite the medium premium paid. I Hope they go on sale in a month for a hundred bucks cheaper. That would be a deal and a half then.
