those are the police shotguns. i have been learning how to modify these from a certified Remington armorer who build leo/swat/military shotguns. the difference between a 870 express and a police model is the trigger guard, a few basic components, and the price tag. the police models have a cast aluminum trigger guard, and this soaks up oil. dust then clings to it, causing a gummy build up. the tactical is a "police" model, but with a 14" barrel. a 14" barrel is a nfa class 3 item, needing a 200 dollar tax stamp.
the shotgun i am selling is a 870 express, but i have modified it to have the same internal components as a police model. the only difference you will notice is the price.
