    The genuine 870P is built on a different line than the sporting guns. It has around 20 different parts, including heavier springs, different finish, and is hand checked for function before being sold. The newest ones are backbored with a very long forcing cone, and are choked IC.

    The heavier springs and different parts are for added reliability when "power shucking" the gun in panic mode with heavy loads of buckshot.
