Remington 870 s.M

Postby Deadpointoutdoors » Mon Oct 29, 2012 9:41 am

So after having a great morning shoot saturday with my remington 870 super mag , i never knoticed any issues , but after i pulled up to shoot a green head i pulled off the first round (3'' Heavy shot #bb) and when i went to eject that round , it hung up and wouldent come out. after a few minets of tinkering to get the jammed shell in the chamber out i found that the rail and bar inside the reciver on the oppisit side of were you put in your shells had broken half way off causing my shell brass to hang up on that bar.

does any body out there have a similer problem? and is there a way to fix it without sending it in or replacing it.

This gun has only been through 2 seasons i belive remingtons methods are not what they used to be...

my dad has had his 870 mag for 20 years and its ten times the quality that mine is.

Not sure which rail your talking about a picture would be good. That said as londg as it isnt a part of the reciever i.e.milled into the reciever, you should be able to replace it. Remington will sell you the part and send it. The days of them having superior customer service are gone. In years past they would send you a replacement part free of charge if it broke, those days are gone. That said, i think you may have the 870 express and not a wing master. The wingmaster is a superior gun to the express in finish and action smoothness etc, this is reflicted in the price. I hope this helps

Two years ago I shot 6 rounds of Black Cloud and the thing jammed up and when I took out the trigger piece one of the rails had come off from the staking. Later that year I took a punch and brass hammer and restaked it in and it has worked since.. did the same staking to my old Wingmaster. If you ordered a new part yo would have it restaked in so it would not fall out.

Don't give up on your 870. The piece is not that expensive.
I think he's needing #56 or #55.

Those parts are really easy to replace. It's a little tricky because you have to tuck the ends into the receiver.
You can do the repair yourself. I've had them parts out many times. On one of my 870's #56 falls out every time I take the gun apart. It still works just fine.

its the 55 i belive , the rail that the steel pin (#56) is held in , the rail is wellded or tact in but the problem is the rail broke halfway off so its a diffacult fix.
