I was curious about that but never had a chance to test that. But recently the ejector spring broke on my Remington 870 and that was a good opportunity to test the shotgun without the ejector spring.
It will work! The shotgun was working properly but with much bigger chance of the stove pipe problem. I had a stove pipe for about each 5-10 shots. So yes, you can still use your shotgun with broken ejector spring in an emergency situation but you need to replace the ejector spring as soon as possible.
The Remington Versa Max Competition Tactical shotgun was first introduced in 2010. Remington had been determined to design a shotgun with a state-of-the-art autoloading action system. What they ended up producing was a tactical shotgun with the best performance and reliability that you’ve ever seen. The reason it is called a “competition tactical” shotgun is because it is suitable for both personal defense purposes and competition purposes. This gives you the convenience of being able to take the shotgun that you use for home defense and bring it to a sporting competition or shooting range for recreational purposes.
The Magpul MS2 Gen3 Sling is a useful upgrade for owners of shotguns or rifles. If you currently carry your shotgun or rifle with your hands while out hunting or target shooting, then you’re going to exhaust more of your energy. A handy sling like this one will keep your weapon securely next to your body while letting you remain hands-free. Just remember that it is a bad idea to have a sling on your home defense gun.
The Blackhawk Knoxx SpecOps Gen III is a premium stock upgrade for the Remington 870 shotgun that you don’t want to miss. If you’re new to shotguns and still using the factory stock that came with your Remington 870, then you know how the recoil feels each time you fire. With the Knoxx SpecOps Stock Gen III, this recoil you would normally feel will be reduced a lot.

Had a chance to try the Remington Versa Max Competition Tactical. Awesome shotgun with many interesting features. I will have a complete review soon, but at the moment, you can watch a small dynamic teaser video:

S&J Hardware (http://www.sjhardware.com) is a Canadian manufacturer & retailer of firearms accessories and other shooting-related products. They offer a number of add-ons and replacement components for shotguns, including a line of magazine extensions for the Remington 870 and others. A lot of S&J Hardware’s products have proven popular in the 870 community, such as their magazine followers and Velcro shell carriers, and I’ve personally used several of their accessories for years with good results. Their magazine extensions always sounded really good on paper, but I really hadn’t seen them in the wild much, and had no personal experience with them. This came up in a discussion on the Rem870.com forums, and soon afterward, Scott Mueller, S&J’s United States distributor (http://www.sjhardware.us), contacted me asking if I would be interested in having one sent over for evaluation. Obviously I was interested.
June, 2017. The Salinas City Council voted to give the police department the go ahead to buy 70 brand new shotguns for $47,905, specifically brand new Remington 870s with a price tag of approximately $627 each. The department is trading in 60 shotguns at $150 each and adding 10 new guns, with the trade-ins bringing in $8,520 in refunds.
The guns are being bought from L.C. Action Police Supply based in San Jose, where the department previously purchased its supply in 2007. They are expected to arrive by the end of this month.
“Realistically we don’t fire shotguns that often in critical situations, but every day you go out and you check to make sure the shotgun works. Everyone is issued the same ammunition,” Shaw said. A cadet goes through an average of 300 rounds during the academy.
