My 870 has one of those lawyer-proof triggers. While that is OK for my HD version, for the match version I want a slightly better feeling trigger. What are my options?

I am not quite sure what you mean by "lawyer-proof".

Do you mean that your safety has a key lock build in to it? If so, you can replace it with any non-keyed 870 safety.

If you mean that the trigger pull weight is too heavy for you, do you have an 870 Police? The 870P has a heavier sear spring which results in a heavier trigger pull weight. You can buy the spring that comes on the 870 Express and switch the two.

If you mean that your 870 trigger just feels heavy and gritty... is your 870 new? If so, shoot it a lot and it will probably smooth out. Otherwise, Brownells sells a trigger kit for the 870 which replaces several of the trigger group compnents and springs. Can't remember who makes it.

Here is a link to the kit: http://www.brownells.com/aspx/NS/store/ProductDetail.aspx?p=21078&title=REMINGTON+870%2f1100+TRIGGER+SYSTEM

I'd 2nd that - out of my two 870s, one had trigger work done - the other one has just had ALOT of rounds through it - and they BOTH have decent trigger pulls, for shotguns...
