View Full Version : 870 issue

Hi, I have an 870 express magnum. I've noticed that when I handle my gun, I can hear something sliding somewhere inside the gun. Is this normal? If not, then can you think of what it might be, and how I can fix this? Thanks!

I hear the same damn thing! Huh... I thought I'd just done something stupid.

do you still have the dowel in the gun?

It's the plug. It keeps you from loading more than 3 shells in the gun. Most likely.

Remove the magazine cap. You should be able to shake the plug out of the magazine.

I hear mine in the buttstock LOL. Nothing to worry about though.

Yes. I hear it in the buttstock, too. It's like a metal something sliding against a metal something.
