Can the safety in a right handed Model 870 be turned around or modified to accomodate a left handed shooter?

Table of contents


Since 1986, the safety on the Model 870 has not been able to be "turned around" by a gunsmith. The design of the trigger plate assembly does not allow this modification.

If you have an 870 manufactured after 1986, there are some aftermarket companies offering reverse manufactured safety buttons, specifically made for this procedure. 


We do offer a replacement left handed trigger assembly for a right handed ejection Model 870 which you can order by calling our parts department at 1-800-243-9700 M-F 9am-5pm EST or by visiting our online store at
