Rem 870 feeding issues

#1

Post by Razai » March 1st, 2019, 5:03 am

My son’s 870 12 gauge has a feeding issue I haven’t seen before. It ejects spent shells, but gets hung up when chambering the next one. I have never has a pump shotgun that did not feed as designed. I’m no smith, but I don’t see or feel anything obvious.
I guess this might better fit under “Services Needed” as I’ll pay to have it fixed, but I really don’t know what the issue is.
Thoughts ?

I honestly can’t diagnose it. It happens every time my son works the action, about 50% of the time when a buddy tries it, and about 10% of the time for me.
If it was a single issue, I feel like the failure rate should be more consistent, but it does happen for every shooter that has tried.
