Remington 870 Ejector Spring Replacement
My friend has broken ejector spring on his Remington 870 recently. That is why we have recorded a video to show how to replace broken ejector spring on Remington 870. Also, you will find instructions and photos below.
First of all, you will need the right tools. The easiest way to fix the ejector spring is to get an ejector spring rivet cutter from Brownells.com. Hopefully, you will not need the complete rivet staking tool set and other tools such as two special punches.
Remington 870 ejector spring replacement is easy if you have ejector spring rivet cutter. You just need to do the following steps:
1. Use the hollow-end ejector spring rivet cutter to cut off the head of the front rivet
2. Check the rivet after several revolutions
3. Remove the broken ejector spring and clean ejector
4. Insert new ejector spring and re-peen the existing rivet
5. Repeat re-peening if needed.
6. Check how shotgun works using dummy shells
The process is fast if you can re-peen the existing front rivet, if not, you will need to have more tools and will have to spend more time and efforts to remove the old rivet completely and use the new one.
Re-peening should be done using small punches or punches from the Brownells Remington 870 Rivet Staking Tool Set.
Brownells Remington 870 Rivet Staking Tool Set will make a repair of the ejector spring much easier. This tool will save you a lot of time and you will not need to remove the rivet completely. This will save you from refinishing of the Remington 870 receiver.
