Well, I had a nice tacticool Mossberg 930SPX and it was great, but I wanted something more classic, more basic, that I know will out last be and be stupid reliable.

I have Always been partial to wood furniture, and in my eyes nothing is as classic as the police furniture on a Remington 870.

I had planned to Pick up an 870 express and swap to police furniture, but then I decided, why not go all the way.

I found an 870P, Police magnum, brand new with the wood furniture. I missed one on gun broker with the extended tube but that's no big deal.

Just had it shipped in and picked it up today. Absolutely beautiful walnut furniture.

The ONLY mods this will be getting is a factory Remington 2 shot extension which will be arriving tomorrow, and the sling you see in the last pic. The idea here is to keep it simple, keep it basic.

That is a nice looking gun! Once you put the extension on the magazine tube you will have a great place to mount a light.

I'm almost I'm your same boat..
I have a "tacticool" mossberg 590A1 for (one of) my home defense guns..

But I'm in the market for the exact same shotgun you bought yourself...

Nothing like a simple 870 with wood furniture...nice shotgun, my friend.

My daughter became so frustrated when I was looking for a shotgun. I wanted wood, and I wanted rifle sights, with a barrel no longer than 20 inches. In today's market that was unbelievably hard to find. I finally settled for a Winchester pump, but I didn't get the sights I wanted. It feels good to me, so it will keep me happy until I find what I really want.

make it even simpler. lose the sling . they just snag on things. slings are for 20 mile marches anyway.
