870 Oversized Safeties......Which one?

Post by SILVERLINEMAN » Tue Jan 14, 2020 3:32 pm

So, I purchased a new 870 (very happy with it!) and was wanting to do an upgrade on the safety. I am looking at either the S&J or the Wilson Combat. I really like the looks of the S&J but was wondering if it would stick out too far. If anyone has that safety could you post a picture and give me your input? Thanks!

IIRC, I put the S&J safety on one of my 870's and it was huge! Very good for a gloved hand, but took a little (okay, a LOT) of getting used to on an ungloved hand. I'll have to look but am sure it was the S&J offering. Yea, it was (just confirmed). The Wilson Combat looks more my style.

I put the Wilson on My 870. Gotta be honest. I really don't notice a whole lot of difference.

Maybe I was expecting a "Holy cow"! moment, but, didn't happen. maybe I was expecting obnoxiouslt large, didn't happen either.

that being said, it is certainly big enough to know it's there.

the Vang comp looks huge.

I also use s&j safety. I use my 870 for hunting so usually have gloves on. Without gloves it does not bug me much but might for others b.c of the size of it.
