I was reading the thread regarding the differences of the 870 Express and Police Magnum shotguns and I didn't understand the old safety/new safety thing. I own three 870s; one Express from around '94 with Choate extension and Police 18" barrel, one Police Magnum from late 80's, and one Police Magnum with factory extension and synth stock that is a very recent make. I've noticed no difference in the safeties. Please explain. Is it an internal difference? Do I need to replace the safety on on my Express?
