Spiker, while you're right that alot of stuff shouldn't be taken at face value on the net, I've read from no less than a dozen websites that when certain shells are fired from this shotgun, the brass expands into the grooves of the chamber, thus making it difficult to pull back the slide to eject the spent shell. I also said in no way that I was going to be doing any honing in the chamber. That's something that I know would be better left for a gunsmith.
I've used an older 870 before and I loved it. The only reason it malfunctioned was because my father didn't clean it accordingly before I used it for the first time. I just wanted to know if anyone has experienced this issue with the newer models of 870's.
