Albuquerque PD Orders 100 Remington 870 Shotguns

October 27, 2011  | 

The Albuquerque Police Department ordered another batch of Remington Model 870 Police Magnum shotguns, according to the Remington Arms Co.

"We're looking forward to receiving our most recent shipment of 100 Remington 870P shotguns," said the Albuquerque PD's Commander Tim Gonterman. "They have long been a large and integral part of our firearms and less-lethal inventory."

The shotgun chosen by APD is the Model 870 Police Magnum which features an 18- inch barrel, parkerized metal finish, black synthetic stock and low-profile sight system. The sight system offers fast, accurate shot placement and reduced time to get back on target.

Remington is the leading law enforcement shotgun manufacturer in the United States and has produced more than 10-million Model 870 shotguns. The Model 870 was introduced in 1950 and continues to be a staple of hunting, competition, recreational and law enforcement. It is built with a solid steel receiver machined from an 8-pound block of ordinance steel. The dual action bars offer the most reliable operating system of any pump action shotgun.
