Remington 870 Disassembly and Reassembly are very easy but there is a tool which will make this process even easier.
I received Real Avid Gun Tool Pro Multi-Tool as a gift for my Birthday. I always wanted to buy it, so I was very happy to receive it :)
This multi-tool is designed specially for guns. That is why Real Avid Gun Tool Pro is full of useful features and tools. Now I don’t need my regular multi-tool because I can disassemble, clean and reassemble my guns using the one tool.
I use it mostly for shotguns but Real Avid says that it will be handy for rifles, AR-15 platforms, revolvers and pistols.
Real Avid Shotgun Micro Tool is a very small and handy tool which you can always have with you. It is specially designed to help shotgun owners. You can have it on you keys or on your range bag or shotgun case.
I was surprised how many features this small tool has!
Real Avid has a tiny but very handy tool for shotgun owners: Real Avid Fini Choke Tool
Carrier Pivot Slave Pin and Silver Bullet
Both tools are very good and really simplify the task of the carrier latch spring upgrade. You can see difference on the photo above. I like the tapered end of the Brownells tool more.
You can choose the tool you like more, both of them are good.
How to replace Carrier Latch Spring (Carrier Dog Spring):
Remington 870 Screwdriver Set from Brownells
Remington 870 Screwdriver Set from Brownells has five bits to fit magazine extension bracket, buttplate screws, recoil pads, factory folding stocks and pistol grips.
This is good set but only for standard Remington 870 shotguns with factory extension, stock etc.
I was able to use one of the bits to change extractor, other for sear spring replacement.
I would recommend Brownells to make a bit for buttplate screws little longer to make it more comfortable.
Anyway, this Remington 870 Screwdriver Set from Brownells is very handy for shotguns with factory accessories installed.
It is possible to remove the Remington 870’s forend using pliers, but if you want a better tool you can select one of the specialty wrenches available on the market today:
1. S&J Hardware Forend Removal Tool
2. UTG Deluxe Universal Shotgun Forend Wrench
3. Brownells Remington/Mossberg Forend Wrench
Remington 870 Forend Wrench
J.R. sent me info about the Remington 870 Forend Wrench he received:
“I purchased it from barnesgunparts.com for $25.00 shipped. It looks cheaply made at first but after a closer look you can see that it is actually very well made and assembled by hand. I have seen different forend wrenches for about the same price and twice as much but poorly designed. Brownells forend wrench is what I originally wanted because of the design but this one is very similar and half the price.
J.R., thank you very much for sharing information about Remington 870 Forend Wrench with us!
