The prob's been reported, and in my experience was, that pressure from both sides simulteanously puts the lock on, requiring the key be used before firing. Easy enough to happen,and hard enough to clear. An unneeded modification of doubtful worth, my unlocked 870s are up to 50 years old and well used, w/o any incident that would indicate a keyed safety is a bad idea.

Big Green could have given away cable or trigger locks,spend little/no money doing so, and come out ahead.

And I'm not advocating any boycott either. But, getting a used 870 may mean better workmanship and a smooth stroke. Letting Remington know you regard their newer products as inferior to the olds ones is valuable customer input to help them correct anything that needs it.I think they'd want to know....

Dismounting from soapbox....
