For example, in the mid-1980s, Remington implemented some minor design updates to the action on 12ga 870s, including a "U"-shaped cut-out in the shell carrier that prevented a certain type of malfunction from binding the gun's action.
If your 870 is a 12ga, and you're trying to figure out whether it was made in 1978 or 1996 (which are on opposite sides of the '80s), your shell carrier will give you a strong clue.
Timney Trigger experts at our Phoenix, Arizona plant hand-test every trigger in its intended action and then set the pull weight at our factory standard, 3 lbs.
If you prefer a different pull weight you simply select it from the drop down above and your Timney Trigger will be customized to your preference.
I just bought a new in box 870 tactical with a Blackhawk Special Ops II stock and pistol grip from a small independent dealer/sporting goods store. From several different sources, of which Remington is one of them, that tells me it was manufactured in November 1998, 1969, or 1925.

I've been trying to gather enough information to put together a complete, well-explained guide to dating 870s.
The Timney trigger resolved the problem that we were having with this gun caused by it's hard trigger. Great product,was awesome that company pre set trigger at 2.5 pull ,at no tested it,over and above what u expect from a company now adays ,little fileing to fit trigger guard but no big deal,,,thanks Fantastic service. I installed the model 510 into onto the action of my Remington 721. Even the safety lever feels more well machined and smooth. I have purchased 3 of these and they have all performed phenomenally and allow me to shoot smaller groups with all my rifles once you buy a timney that's all you'll ever buy Timney is the best trigger in my book This is my 4th timney trigger install.
Most factory triggers are so hard to pull that it effects accuracy; especially long range shooting accuracy.
Needed to replace my trigger so rather than send it in to Remington I chose to try and do it myself do it myself. My groups closed up on the range and I can’t wait to take it out hunting this fall. Pull weight is the amount of pressure, in ounces or pounds, required to fire the trigger.
After less than 24 hrs, I've already found the "extra" info to help me beyond the the "black powder" and barrel code info.

I am assuming your second letter in the barrel code is "Q" based on what you say above 1978 or 1996.
