The original Remington 870 shotgun was designed in a way that allowed the shotshell to get jammed between the carrier and the bolt. If you tried to remove the shell, it would be a rather difficult process. If you ask anyone who used Remington 870 shotguns before the 1980s, they’ll tell you that it required a user to disassemble the shotgun. Don’t do what a lot of gun owners do and just slam your shotgun onto a hard surface because that will damage the action bars.
This Remington 870 Parts List and Schematic will be regularly updated with new parts.
Let’s talk about one more Remington 870 home defense setup.
Remington 870 Repair Kit
There is a Remington 870 Repair Kit which you can buy to have parts most often required for repairs.
But I have made my own list of parts to have for an emergency repair:
TRIGGER PLATE PIN DETENT SPRING
TGR PLATE PIN DETENT SPRING REA
EXTRACTOR, 12/16/20, NON-MIM
FIRING PIN RETRACTOR SPRING
FIRING PIN RETAINING PIN
But I hope that I will never need those parts and my Rem 870 will work without any problems for years!
