FWIW, I R/O'd for a guy who unofficially broke the then-record for five bowling pins with a pump shotgun, and he was using a stock 870. The ability to slam-fire doesnt equal the ability to quickly connect with targets.

Remington specifically designed the 870 to prevent "slam firing".

There are persistent rumors/urban legends that Remington used to offer "slam fire" 870's to the police on special order.
Remington specifically denies this, and no one has ever verified the existence of one.

Due to the design, not only is it not really possible to convert an 870, the 870 would not be safe to slam fire.
Unlike many older designs, unless the disconnect is engaged, the 870 will not lock.
If you defeated the disconnect, the 870 would fire in an unlocked condition....... BAD news.

870

I was duck hunting with a guy that had a model 12. A pair of black duck went over the flooded timber we were in and he fired once and ejected the empty and pumped a new shell in and the gun went off. He stopped and looked at the gun and said to me did I see that and he said he must of had his finger on the trigger when he slammed the action shut. It was long and he bought a new 870 and I think it was because he did not feel the Model 12 was safe.
