930 SPX forend fit

I'm not able to fully thread the mag extension on as only 5 of the 6 threads on the magazine tube are exposed.

I need to figure out where the forend actually makes contact with the metal on the gun and shave off about 1/8th of an inch.

I can either do this inside or modify the outside (front) of the stock where the mag extension meets so the mag extension has a recess to come down another 1/8".

What do you think? Where do I trim?

Yes, I've tried forcing it down farther, checked everything, jiggled and wiggled.

NO, DON'T

Do not modify the gun, check your manual. I assume you have the manual?

You may have put the little plastic piece (forearm retainer) backwards. The gun works as shipped. I assume it worked before you disassembled it.

Checked that, but will check again.

Worked the same before and after, 100% reliable operation, just not consistent on how many shells it will take in the magazine.

Going to disassemble and reassemble again, it does seem like it's just one tiny thing I'm missing because it's all of 1/8th of an inch.

Good idea, take it apart and start over.

I clean mine after every trip to the range , but because I only use it once or twice a year each time I'm a bit rusty and have to refer to the manual.

Don't forget to check YouTube for videos.
