Question Remington 870 safety, any departments change to larger aftermarket?

I'm wanting to see if any sheriff or police departments ever upgrade the safeties on Remington 870's to the larger easier to depress aftermarket safeties? Or is every 870 in your department just stock?

Thanks

Stock. My dept lost the shotgun as a lethal option though. They’re all less lethal now.

Ours are stock.

Itís a shame some departments discard the shotgun. Itís a tremendous option for certain circumstances.

Agreed. I was extremely disappointed and kept wishing that they wouldíve allowed us to keep it as both options.

Ours have factory safeties as well and are designated less lethal or for breaching applications.

We keep out 870's stock with the exception of they are colored gray. We use them for less lethal only.

Refurbished ours and an oversized safety was part of the package.

Most Departments don’t do anything beyond stock for liability issues

Ours are also stock...however we can carry our own 870's... and honestly I wouldn't be surprised that those who carry have some type of upgrades.
