Pretty bad when 99% of the gunsmiths can take YOUR parts a build a better gun. You'd think with all the free research and development (meaning available custom rifles) they might learn something.
Theres absolutely nothin wrong with an 870. They are a moderate priced quality piece of equipment for the working man. In these times we are gonna see things get cheaper and cheaper anyway. The 870 wasnt made to be pretty more like ruggedly handsome. Ive owned two and they are virtually indestructible plus great shooters.

BTW let me guess you own a Benelli?

Trade it for a Winchester, or a Savage.
I like Savage better any way.

JMHO

westtexducks, i have a model 770 in 30-06. the exact same thing happend to me. i shipped the gun to remington and they fixed it under warrenty. when it came back it was a completely different gun. Bolt was smooth and the trigger was crisp and smooth pull. for all those guys bad mouthing remington all i can say is take your fancy expensive guns that are so much better and put your oney on the table. With my 770 in 243 or 3006 will put 5 factory loads through one hole at 100 yards any day anywhere. Good Luck

I bought one for my son at Walmart about a year ago & took it to the range,on the second shot the trigger guard broke right off.I had Remington replace the whole stock, since is all one piece, then I sold it.

I'll bet you can. Especially if the hole is 12" in diameter.

IMO, the 770's don't even make good boat paddles.
