    So, as I was talking on the phone to the guy buying my 870 I discovered you do not need the key to lock the safety on an 870. You must, however, have the key to unlock it.

    Anyone in the Hillsboro area have a key I can use for a minute tomorrow to unlock this damn thing so I can sell it or know of a place locally where I might be able to buy one? Had it been earlier I could have just gone to the Hillsboro T&S club and I'm sure they would have had one I could borrow or buy, but they aren't open Thursdays.

    Thanks,
    Brian

    Just FYI It's not an allen wrench on the 870. It's a 'J' shaped piece of steel. God I hate these silly "keys" for guns. :)

    I have a key, and work in hillsboro. I won't be down there again until sunday, but if you still need one then let me know, I'd be glad to help. It's **** hot wireing firearms these days.

    If you don't like them vote with your wallet! Quit buying guns with locks. Mossbergs don't have locks :D
