Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default 870 feed problem

Back from the range with disappointment. She is reluctant to feed the second shell. Gets hung up with Rio and Federal ammo. Had my buddy fire it, and it hung up on him too. (To eliminate operator error) Shotty is 26 yes old and reasonably clean. Any ideas?

The mag spring retainer cap was riding upwards causing slack. Not enough pressure to force the next round into the tray. Fixed it by placing a wine cork on top of the retainer spring cap, and placing the end cap back on. No creep now.

So it was a weak spring?

Good trouble shooting Steve.

Still had issues until spotting the true culprit. The "push cap" forcing shells into the receiver was blocked by grease, plastic residue and other gunk. A wipe of a rag has it humming now.

Thumbs up

My 870's only 12 or 13 years old. Haven't put 100 through it yet. Good tips to know.
