870 20 ga cycling issue?

Post by Ross » Sat Apr 13, 2013 10:34 am

I have a brand New 870 20 youth model and it doesn't seem to cycle the 3" federal HW shells into the chamber? Federal HW are the only 3" shells I have. 2 3/4 seem to cycle through ok. What's up with this thing!

Is the nut on the cyclinder tightened all the way down? It's under the forearm.

Make sure and get all the factory crud out of the barrel....take the barrel off and spray it down good with brake cleaner to get all that mess off of it.

They have really started packing them with crud lately for some reason....

Probably a good idea....I must say that I have always been a Remmy fan but their quality has definately slipped a lot in the last few years.

I sure hope they get your problem taken care of for you....keep us posted!!
