I have a late 1950's 870 and it has the aluminum TG. I think it's about a 1957 model. I recently acquired an 870 Express and a 11-87 Police semiauto and they both have polymer TG's. I was a bit put off at first but being a Glock shooter I came around fast. The polymer is both sturdy and functional and won't chip or wear through the finish like an aluminum TG. Now I just need to get that Express as smooth as my other 870's................
