Your gun sounds unsafe. Bring it to a gunsmith to get checked out.. You shouldn't be sprayed in the face by hot gases via the safety...

Send it back to Mossberg. It is unsafe. There should not be any blow back at all

I wonder if Remington ever creates forum accounts and posts troubles with the competition's guns.

It sounds like Soilwork and Recoiljunky don't want to face the fact that Mossbergs can have problems. Are you saying that the OP is a liar?

I have a Hawk 982 (imo a superior 870 express clone), and I like the 870 design. It's just that...first post... "pried/pryed"? That and the 3 problems make it seem that Mossberg didn't QC ANYTHING on their top of the line model. (I do QC for a living FYI.) This isn't the first time this possibility has crossed my mind.

I'm not saying the op is a liar, working for remington or mosbergs can't break. It was in all jokeing twards the op. But on a seriouse note as stated before the gun is unsafe as it it's and needs to be sent to mossberg

Send it back to Mossberg. More than likely, they will pick up the shipping costs both ways. Your gun has a warranty. Use it.
