If you were talking to me, I do plan on replacing the 28" barrel with an 18" or 20" and a 2 or 3 shot mag extension. That's really all I have thought about for the shotgun at this time. I would like to retain the longer barrel for longer distances though I think.

If it's having trouble extracting the spent shell. Check the extractor claw at the front of the bolt (the hook looking thing)

Most of the time whenever I hear any problems with 870s its usually the "Express" line.

Differences between the Express and Police.
We have inspected the extractor claw and it looks to be fine. As tight as these shells are, I don't think it's that. It's almost like an issue with the barrel, except it's not every time. I can't remember if it gets worse as I put more rounds through it. IIRC, it didn't make a difference whether it was 20th or the 80th round. It should still be under warranty with the factory, I might just try that route.

I wouldn't be surprised if the police line is built to better specs.
