Remington 870 Tools for Disassembly, Repair and Gunsmithing

Make sure you’re using the right tools for the job. There are lot of improvised tools but there are also specialized Remington 870 tools which make life easier.

Tools for Easier Disassembly and Reassembly

Remington 870 disassembly/reassembly is one of the most common procedures and there are inexpensive tools which can make it easier.

Pin Pusher

Remington 870/1100 Pin Pusher – My Favourite Tool!

Remington 870 Disassembly and Reassembly are very easy but there is a tool which will make this process even easier.

Remington 870/1100 Pin Pusher

Most Remington 870 owners use a screwdriver or Allen key to push out the receiver pins. I have also used these tools for quite some time, but they are not the best tools for this purpose. One wrong move and you can scratch the finish of your Remington 870. Also, it’s not an easy task on a brand new 870 when all the parts are stiff.

Pin Pusher makes disassembly easier, and it enables you to remove trigger group pins easily. This punch is made specifically for the 870 and 1100, and works great.
With the Pin Pusher, you will never scratch the receiver of your shotgun again and it will look like new.

This tool is simple to use and very useful. It makes disassembly easier and protects your receiver from scratches. I highly recommend getting it together with the Remington 870. The price of the Pin Pusher is just $19.99 and you will be happy to have it in your toolbox. A more expensive Real Avid Gun Tool Pro Multi-Tool has the pin pusher too.
