A shotgun forum for basic gun smithing, repair, modifications, and all other detailed shotgun information.
Ran into a problem while cleaning a young hunters 870 express 12 gauge. I could get the magazine spring out but the follower
won't clear the end of the magazine tube because of the two dents that hold the spring retainer piece in the end of the tube.
Any suggestions on a fix for this problem? Removal of all of the parts makes it much easier to properly clean the magazine tube.

The follower has grooves to clear the dents. Rotate the follower with your finger while applying a little pulling pressure and when it gets to the grooves it should come right out.
