Yeah, if it's happening with multiple brands of ammo it's likely a problem with the gun. Check the extractor, give it a good cleaning. Take a look at the chamber as well, make sure there's no dirt or burrs in there that the shells might be getting hung up on. Failing that take it to a good gunshop or a smith and see what they have to say.

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.

This is a 870 owned by a guy in another forum (Jagermeister, from FA forum), "The Pigbuster":

That is BA for sure! I will be getting an shell holder, sling, and a collapsable stock to match my AR-15. Anything else that I do to my shotgun would come long after I am done with my AR mods. (assuming I can get the 870 jamming figured out of course)

I would, 20 inch, 6+1, can use slugs or buck, light and extra ammo already handy, regular stock (i hate PGs on shotguns) and the recoil pad for fast firing. Right now the thing looks like this:




but ill change that
