Hey gang,

I think this so going to be the shortest thread I’ve ever started on here. I’m replacing the factory safety on my 870 with a Wilson Combat Jumbo Head. The factory safety has that funky twisting lock. Do I need to do anything extra to keep the new safety from locking out? Only asking because the house howitzer is one the go to home defense guns.

thanks,

Thanks Kingcreek, it looked like that, but I just wanted to make sure there was t some super secret step since it’s my go to house howitzer
 
Mine has a j lock, didn't know it was called that or what the point of it was but assumed it was an awful locking "feature", it didn't come with a key or anything but I don't really want it on there and want to just replace it with a jumbo safety
 
Pretty sure when you replace it the "feature" goes away-----it's been a good 20 years since I've messed with them but that's what I recall.
 
I am left handed so have replaced several 870 safety’s with the left handed version. No difference on the process except which side the safety slides in from.
