Ejector Housing Concern?

Post by ShotgunSam870 » Mon May 06, 2019 11:12 pm

I just noticed this nick about the rivet of my ejector housing on my 870.
Is this something to be concerned about, such as a broken ejector?
I haven’t fired this gun in a while (life’s gotten a little hectic) and it’s still ejects snap caps perfectly fine. I assume I must have ‘nicked it’ the last time I was reassembling it after cleaning it.

I wouldn’t worry about it if it still works.

If it's still tight, doesn't slide any, then just keep-on shootin'-on!
