ULTIMATE RELIABILITY KIT
The Remington 870 is the very definition of CLASSIC. Remington has sold over 10,000,000 of these wonderful pump-action shotguns. However, over time, manufacturing costs have prompted them to cheap out on some of the parts.
The first part in the ULTIMATE RELIABILITY KIT replaces the stock Etractor. Remington now uses MIM (Metal Injection Molding) for their Extractors on all but the 870 Police Models. I've included the much more durable, SOLID STEEL Extractor from the 870 Police Model. This is a factory Remington part.
Installation of the non-MIM Extractor is a breeze. Remove the MIM Extractor by placing a small screwdriver against the plunger, and remove the old Extractor. Simply "click" the STEEL Police Extractor into the slot. An installation video will be posted ASAP.
The next issue is the weak Carrier Dog Spring. Once again, I include the Remington spring that's included in the 870 Police Model. What the stronger Carrier Dog Spring does is give the Carrier a much stronger "push", enabling more positive feeding of a shell from the magazine into the chamber.
The last weak link we'll address here is the cheap, plastic Follower that Remington uses in their magazine tubes. Plastic can get old and brittle, and crack, causing shards of plastic to clog your magazine tube, or even worse, work their way into the action. Remington recommends replacing the plastic Followers every 2 to 6 years, depending on your environment. To permanently rectify this, I've included a Vang Comp Systems STAINLESS STEEL Magazine Follower. It never needs replacement, and will not break, jamming your weapon when you need it most. Please note that the magazine dimples will need to be removed to install a new follower.
By adding the ULTIMATE RELIABILITY KIT to your beloved scattergun, you'll make your 870 the ULTIMATE in Reliability!
Currently, for 12 gauge only.
