And the disadvantage of the 870 is replacing parts. The shell latches are held in place by the trigger group and the ejector is held in by a screw on the Mossberg. On the Remington, these parts are staked in place and even when you restake parts back into the receiver, there is a finite number of times you can do this until you run out of receiver metal to perform another staking operation. Think this won't really happen? We had a few older 870s in the armory that were about 1 or 2 staking jobs away from being sent back to depot as unrepairable before we turned them back in for new 870MCS shotguns.
