View Full Version : 870 not loading in tube with lever gate!

Hi, just took apart my 870 12g for the first time, I just took apart my 870 20g last week though! Everything is back together. Only trouble is, the lever gate? doesn't go up all the way? and I have having trouble loading rounds in the tube for HD. I cocked the gun and the gate went had better results. This shouldn't happen. I dry fired it and it's having problems still. :confused:

It looks like the lever gate is exposed OUTSIDE of the gun, not flush with it or inside the gun, its poking out. On my 20g it's flush!

Close thread I have found the problem. It wasn't in battery :o Thus making a gap so the lever gate couldn't go up a 1/4 of a inch to fit the round in the magazine tube.
