Most agencies choose the 870 over anything else available for a simple reason, they just keep going and going and going.

I worked in the Md prison system, and instructed for over 10 years, among my other duties. The other shotguns that were tried didn't hold up.

One 870 used for training was on the line from 1981 to 98,and still might be, I retired then. Total new parts needed, stock and forearm. That 870 fired thousands of rounds every year.

Pop bought a used Wingmaster in 56, it must have been one of the very first made. I've put over 3000 rounds through it so far,and it's tight as a bank vault. BTW, much modified and accessorized, it's my HD 870. Got three more....
