    Do the new Remington 870 LEmodels come with the dreaded J-safetys?

    From what I've read here, all new production 870's regardless of model, have a standard safety without the "J" lock.

    LE models do not. Current 870's do not (still have dimples though) but there are likely many of the j-locked guns in inventory out in the wonderful world of gunshops...

    The 870 Police Magnum does not have the j safety.

    Just for clarity, the LE 870s never did have the J-lock. (Similarly, the LE 700 rifles did not have the safety on the bolt sleeve, either.)

    I just purchased a Rem 4897 (20" bead sights, parkerized) and it does not come with the J safety.

    Thanks everyone

    How about an online dealer or distributor that deals in 870 LE models either new or used?

    I bought my 870 Police model from www.sportingarms.com and got a great deal and couldn't have been happier with the service.
