I'm looking to pick up a 870 police 4407 or possibily a 4421. Are the barrels and extensions on these two guns the same as the 870 pmax. I'm basically looking for a pmax with out the extras. Anyone have photos of either gun would be great. I've seen a few pics in this forums but some seem to have a slight difference in the round extensions so I'm not sure which is the stock setup.

Thanks

Yes, all 3 are imp cyl and parkerized - only the sights are different. And the extensions are all +2. You can find the spec on all of the current Police variations here: http://www.remingtonle.com/shotguns/870.htm

Thanks Austin12gauge. I thought I was seeing a difference in the two lengths between the barrel and the round extionsion. I couldn't tell if it was just the photos or not. Some photos seem to show the barrel extending further and sometimes it seem shorter than the extension. I thought maybe they were different models

My factory Remington magazine extension on my 20" 870 is longer than the barrel.

I recently purchased (and traded off :D) a Remington 1100 Tactical and the factory magazine extension was even with the barrel.

Years ago the factory extension was "always" a little longer than the barrel it was designed for. Aestheticly this botherd me and I preferred the Choate extension for the police guns I had. I have gotten older and am happy with my slightly longer factory extension as I tend to prefer original equipment over aftermarket. Even so it is nice to see Remington is evening up the magazines as I think it still looks better to not extend past the barrel crown.
