870 magnum

Hello. I am new to this forum. I am wondering if anyone can tell me if there is any difference between the thickness of a Remington 870 Police Magnum, and a regular Remington 870.

The reason I'm asking is because I installed a side saddle which required me to remove the trigger pins on my 870 Police Magnum and I have since misplaced those pins. Now I want to buy new pins but can only find ones labled as "Remington 870", and non labeled as especially for an 870 Police Magnum. I just want to make sure that the receivers are the same thickness before I order the pins.

Do some more research on this as my experience is that the Remington listing of magnum is for 3" shotshell and the regular one is for the 2-3/4" shotshell. I knw that the older Remingtons are labeled that way. …….

Be Safe !!!

Called Remington

Well I did decide to do some more research, so I called Remington's Customer Service number today. The representative says that the receivers on all 12 gauge 870 shotguns are the exact same dimensions. So I ordered some pins and will update this thread when I receive them so that the info might help the next guy looking for the answer to this type of question.

Thanks everyone for responding.

The part numbers are the same for standards and Magnums since the 1950s.

Got the pins

Today I received the pins from Midway USA and they fit in my Remington 870 Police Magnum just fine even though they were labeled as pins for a plain ole Remington 870. So I guess the answer to the question I asked at the beginning of this thread is;

Yes the Remington 870 receivers are all the same thickness. Express/Wingmaster/Magnum/Police Magnum. All the same.

They will fit 1100s and 11-87s as well. A lot of guns descended from the Remington 11-48.
