> Any FReepers ever have a problem with their Remington shotgun safety?
Personally, I dislike the trigger guard safety on my 870. I’ve missed more than a few good shots at foxes and other predators, because I just grab the gun chamber a round aim and pull the trigger, which doesn’t fire, because I forgot to push the bloody safety button.
I like the tang safety on my Mossberg MUCH better. It’s right where I can see it, and I can always tell when it’s on or off.
I like the tang safety too but overall the Remington 870 is probably the best pump shotgun ever made.
BTW, the Mossberg safety used to break so often, our local dealer always kept a large supply of replacements on hand.
I am sure Mossberg has corrected the problem by now but it never should have happened in the first place.
That makes two of us. Too hard to reach when you need the safety off RIGHT NOW. The Mossberg's tang safety is much better, at least with a non-pistol grip stock.
