Pennsylvania State PD Chooses Remington 870

Madison, NC - Remington Arms Company, Inc. announced today it has been awarded a contract to provide the Pennsylvania State Police with 1,200 new Model 870P, 12 gauge shotguns.

"We selected Remington shotguns after a complete test and evaluation process", said Captain Acken of the Pennsylvania State Police. "We are excited to work with Remington to provide weapons our Troopers need. We discussed the 870's with several other agencies and found that the shotgun we selected is the best for our use."

In addition, courses will be provided by The Remington Armorer's School instructors to train Pennsylvania State Police personnel how to repair and maintain the Remington Model 870P shotguns used by their officers.

"We are very excited to win this award", said Rick Johnson, Business Manager - Remington Law Enforcement Sales. "These shotguns were tested thoroughly and will provide the Troopers with years of service."

Delivery of the shotguns will begin in March, 2011.

Since its introduction in 1950, over 10 million Model 870 shotguns have been produced. It remains the overwhelming choice for law enforcement divisions due to its historical dependability. Through numerous configurations and variants, the Model 870 platform is used for law enforcement, military applications and sporting purposes in more than 50 countries including the United States.
