870 action - how loose?
Well now that I have my 870 and I'm trying to learn as much as I can, I have another question.
How loose or free should the action be? I'm talking about racking the slide here. Should it drop fairly easily if I hold the shotgun upright and press the release?
I was reading something on fine-tuning that sort of implied that it should almost drop by itself with perhaps just a hint of a downward jerk.
Mine is a bit stiff but I figured that is because it's new. Should I put any effort into stripping it and trying to smooth the action or will it "break-in" after a few million rounds.
