Lefty ????

OK I have a friend at work that just bought a Remington 870
the deal is he is a lefty and he wanted t know if by chance
he could get the saftey to switch to the other side...
or would he have to purchase a left handed trigger group???

The safety can be switched but it takes some minor modifications to the trigger group. It's not really difficult but is probably beyond most home gunsmiths.

Unless Remington has changed their trigger groups you need to remove the safety and detent, plug a hole and then redrill it in a new location. It should cost around $20 plus shipping. You'll only have to ship the trigger group and not the entire gun.
