Remington 870 Express Tactical Magazine Follower Problem Fix




What do you think about this video?

Nathen M: mine either but i ordered the follower anyway. it's a nice piece.

x81kilo: So did you end up losing a cartridge in your payload due to the upgrade? This is on the way home just ordered it yesterday....cause i have the same issue you described. Thanks for the vid!

SinCitySeller: Is that a Wilson Combat Remington 870?

average_joe466: after alittle dremel work and cut a inch from the spring (not compressed) i gained factory spec back i only used 2 3/4 shells tho

Mario Rodriguez: Great video - I just ordered the 870 Tactical. I have ordered the Mesa Urbino pistol grip stock, Mesa tactical sling hook mount which will go between the new stock and receiver...Allowing my to connect a single point sling....Check out the Mesa Tactical website....All their after market parts, side saddles, stocks, forends with picatinny rails, etc. Their prices a a bit high but this is one of those cases where spending the extra money with get you "High Quality" products!...

nightsniper101: Alright just wondering. careful with the 887, i was going to buy one but heard they had some problems. search 887 click stick on here, there was a few videos showing what happend. I heard a few people say the barrel rusted and the polymor seperated from the barrel. My cousin has one and hasnt had that happen yet, hes only had it a year. I have tried to see if his will FTF yet.

Phrosz: damn, man... I hope she's alright now. You sound like a good father - or at least one that has their priorities straight.

TimusTitans: BITCH, PLEASE (>_<)

CB1942EO: thanks. i got a 870 tactical in january only shot about 30 rounds prior to deployment. i could only get 4 rounds out of 6 into the magazine. now i know why

average_joe466: no i never did the only thing i did was the follower and cut out a inch out of the magazine spring. i wanted to because there were times i wish i did. i sold my 870 tho because i was offered the same as what i paid for it so i let it go. i'm planning on buying a remington 887 nitro mag tactical soon.

LibertysTeeth83: I had the same problem. it took me a while to figure out I was in touch with Remington a couple times they sent me a replacement mag tube and spring but it didn't help. I got a new follower from Nordic components and never had another issue.

average_joe466: i did loose 1 round but id reather loose one round and have a working shotgun then have a ton of shells and a faulty shotgun in a time of need.

average_joe466: due to the market prices rising over the last couple of months. because of the panic buying the price could be up or have changed. i ordered it from Brownells.

average_joe466: the Mesa buffer recoil stock. to me is the best recoil reducing stock. it has alot less flex and wabble. i didn't like blackhawks or any other of the spring recoil stocks.

average_joe466: @Chalino Sanchez if i remember correctly it was like $25ish. well worth it.

TimusTitans: Americans with shotguns, nothing new -_-

average_joe466: I did at first but with alittle working I got it back. I only used 23/4 shells.

average_joe466: Piers Morgan, Please

Chalino Sanchez: how much was this new follower?

kosmosleha: why not buy used 870p for the same price as a new 870 tactical and never have any problems?

average_joe466: ya and its a soft plastic so it can stick very easy. what i did to improve even more after this video was cut a inch out of the spring and grind a smooth round edge on the back side of the follower. so it don't catch on the magazine extention tube.

average_joe466: no i never had the problem. i've never heard of anyone that i know that has a 870 with that problem. the only problems mine had was a crappy magazine follower and the extractor not getting certain shell out.

average_joe466: no its just a Remington 870 express tactical.

time4tradin: Sorry it was already answered in earlier comments

average_joe466: i have shot mainly slugs with mine. the reason i said that was because before i bought it everybody was saying dont shoot slugs. i did any way and ive shot every slug i could find localy high powered slugs and the only problem i had was a bruised should after 35 high powered slugs.

efoxneo: I have the same problem with an older 870 express, how is your shotgun feeding now.

usMarinecuv902: I have a 870 youth express 20GA brand new I've only shot 50 shells through it clay pigeons never put shells in the magazine do you think this will a problem

CB1942EO: did you use a dremel to round the edge?

time4tradin: thank you

time4tradin: How much does the follower cost?

average_joe466: i had there side saddle. i did like it. i was going to get there stock to but the price was abit high for me at the time.

average_joe466: @americanmilitiaman88 I've never had a problem with my front sight. so i can't help you with that.

average_joe466: ya that way you will have finer control

average_joe466: ya she just had a nasty flu. i'm a disabled veteran so my life revolves around my alittle girl. plus i've been having alot of bad luck latey so i will always sell a gun to make sure she is feed, healthy, and has cloths on her back.

Phrosz: Why'd you get rid of it?

sireartem: I have an 870 express 7round. Never had a feeding problem. ever.

average_joe466: British always whining about guns, nothing new -_-

average_joe466: well with your shotgun once you remove the magazine cap and spring. there should be a small nub that stops the follower. if your wanting to add a extension. then that little nub will have to be reomved and smoothed out.

ct0027: hows your 870? I want to get one but I heard they rust easily because of the powder coat. Have you had any experiences with that?

lerch400block: Thinkin of doing this to all my tube mags.

Mario Rodriguez: They are a bit pricey! I've seen several after market stocks for the 870 but IMO the Urbino looks as though it were made specifically for the 870!...It really makes the 870 "POP", know what I mean!

Phrosz: Europeans stereotyping Americans - nothing new..

average_joe466: my daughter got sick and i had to sale it to get her some medicine

Phrosz: I think xenophobia is categorically un-American, but that piece of crap media whore needs to be deported.

Jeff Meece: fatrcguy, in the beginning of your video you said that you might not be able to fit 6 rounds in the mag, did you have this problem or can you still fit 6 3" rounds? thanks

Mario Rodriguez: After watching your video I plan on buying a new follower to replace the cheap plastic one!...Youd think they would have put something a bit higher end as a follower, instead of plastic?

AuctionBump: Great video, thanks. I have a 870 Express Mag 20G and it appears the orange magazine follower is stuck so it only loads 3 shells and I can't figure out how to remove it. Basically it looks like the magazine came disabled from the factory that way. Maybe the magazine follower is glued in? Anyone know anything about this? Thanks!

CB1942EO: i have the same problem with the follower, and after shooting a few rounds the xs front sight comes off is there a way to keep it secured

nightsniper101: Have you upgraded your extractor? I have the same gun, but mine has the cheap MIM. im upgradin to the steel one.

arsrfun: I have this same shot gun xs sites fancy choke tube and everything! I have had nothing but trouble. Sent it back to have magazine fixed, remington sent me a new barel and still have trouble extracting and ejecting. This is not the same shotgun that i bought twenty yeas ago to hunt with. Reming ton needs to do something about this. Two buddies of mine just bought express models to hunt birds with and both guns have ejecting problems. It hurts to say but remington is producing crap!
