    Just picked up a new 870 express for an HD shotgun, but it has that stupid "J Safety" on it. How can I eliminate that stupid thing? I bought it used without the key, and last one I had, threw the damn key away anyways. Don't want to worry about it causing malfuctions.

    its super simple. Push the to pins out to drop the trigger out. just above the safety there is a pin. push that out. beware of the flying spring. I replaced my safety with this

    Nice! I'll pick up a replacement safety for my kid's rifle. Soon as he's older I can get rid of that stupid J key. Thanks for this post and answer.
