Sarah Connor wielding a Remington 870

The Remington Model 870 is a U.S.-made pump-action shotgun manufactured by Remington Arms Company, LLC. It is widely used by U.S. police and the U.S. military.

The 870 is a variation of the standard Remington 870 Pump Shotgun produced in 1950. The design itself was based on the Model 17 Shotgun designed by John Pederson and John Browning. The 870p was released specifically for use by Police and Military personnel.

Terminator 2: Judgment DayEdit

Remington 870 shotguns were used by several LAPD officers outside the Cyberdyne Systems Building. Sarah Connor found a pair in the back of the SWAT van, keeping one after it crashed. She used it to fight the T-1000, exposing it when it impersonates her. Sarah emptied the shotgun into the T-1000, almost blasting it into a vat of molten steel, but the ammo was used up. However, the T-1000 fell in to the molten steel after the T-800 blasted it with a grenade launcher. Terminator 2: Judgment Day
