Failure to feed is a pretty rare problem which is also difficult to identify. I didn’t understand what happened first times when I experienced it. You feel that you hit something when you push forend forward trying to feed another round and when you check what happened you see a shotshell on a carrier and everything looks normal.
Thanks to Eric for sharing his customer service experience with Remington company.
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!
