Just got a new barrel!!
Straight from Mossberg (sold out elsewhere) 24" rifled with scope base.
Let see how stray those Hornday Sabots are ;)


with the low rings the scope cleared by a MM. but with regular stock is the only way I can be able to rest my cheek!

I believe they sell high comb stocks for all the Remingtons just for cases like yours. My 11-87 has one but that's for trapshooting.

Yeah, I'd forgot about those. I was kinda excited to hear they were making Remington furniture but it just doesn't look right to me. Or I thought it would look goofy on my 870 with the field barrel.

Of course, you are cocking the hammer at the same time you pull the slide back with the hammer down. That isn't an issue of slide to frame fit.

i was using the old slide as a comparison .. i did get some hi temp lithium grease and applied a dab with a qtip and have been working it a bit. it 'slides' much better now (even with the hammer down). I'm going to take it to the range tomorrow and see how she does.

New addition to the family. Got it yesterday. Spikes Lower, Model 1 upper, 6 mags full of green tip ammo and cheap BSA scope.



It'll probably end up with a new upper w/ 14.5" barrel.

Maybe even become a SBR

Sig customer service

I offered to trade my Sig 1911R Scorpion which is a full size 1911 for the exact same gun but in a carry model size and the guy backed out solely because mine is one that has the dreaded Cerakote that sig applied incorectly and it is flaking off. So, I called Sig and told them I had heard they re-finish the gun free if you send it in. I got an RA today and he even asked me to write any other issues I was having so I wrote that I felt the trigger could be a little smoother, and the front tritium sight had lost a little brightness. So he says they will replace the front sight, re-finish the gun and do some trigger work in their custom shop all free and gave me an RA for it. Great customer service since I have had this gun for almost two years.

That should be the standard response to that question.

They fixed and returned my gf's P250 in less than half their turn around time when it failed during some training. No questions asked and she got a free magaine with it.
