LAPD Orders Another 96 Remington 870s

September 23, 2011  | 

The Los Angeles Police Department has ordered another 96 Remington Model 870 Police Magnum and Model 870 Police Marine Magnums, the Remington Arms Company has announced.

"We are excited and proud to supply LAPD its shotguns as we have continued to produce our police weapons to the highest standards in our custom police build area to insure the quality of our weapons going out to police departments across this great nation" said Rick Johnson, director of law enforcement sales.

These new shotguns have a special choke barrel only available in special build configurations of Remington's 18-inch, rifle-sighted barrels. Unique numbering for the agency is being provided at their request to track the number of shotguns purchased in any given year, as well as a unique number to the shotgun for agency issuing and tracking purposes.

For their officers assigned to water and harbor protection, the LAPD also ordered Remington Model 870 Police Marine Magnums. These models feature an Electroless Nickel Plate finish for long life in the harsh sea salt environment inherent to this assignment. The finish is also used on internal parts for protection of the operating parts. The LAPD's unique property number system will be a part of these shotguns as well as the other duty shotguns.
