Members of the Guns group on Reddit exchange information about firearms tools and performance. In a thread called This is the worst gun in my collection, several users cited the Remington Model 870 for shotgun extractor problems.

 “It doesn’t feed right at all,” said one shooter. “The shell gets stuck in the chamber after it’s been fired,” replied another. The M870 is the world’s best-selling shotgun, so these reports might surprise some gun owners. As Flex-Hone® for Firearms users know, however, the solution starts with the surface finish.

Flex-Hone® for Firearms Tools for Remington Model 870 Shotguns

Posted by Heather Jones on Jan 9, 2016 11:49:51 AM

The Remington Model 870 is the world’s best-selling shotgun. Since 1951, over ten million of these pump-action firearms have been made. For M870 owners, the shotgun that matters most is the one that’s held in their hands.

A firearm’s look and feel matter, of course, but sleek lines and collectability won’t compensate for jamming and failures-to-eject (FTEs). In the woods, at the range, or in the line of duty, it's accuracy and reliability that count. That’s why gunsmiths, gun owners, and firearms manufacturers use Flex-Hone® for Firearms tools.

Shotgun Maintenance for Police Shotguns

Posted by Heather Jones on May 26, 2015 10:18:00 AM

Police shotguns have shorter barrels and larger magazine capacities than hunting shotguns. Although a sawed-off shotgun may have a shorter effective range, firearms with reduced-length barrels are easier to maneuver, conceal, and store. For law enforcement officers (LEOs) on patrol, these so-called riot shotguns also support police operations such as entry and breaching. With any type of weapon, however, it’s not just marksmanship that’s linked to performance. Gun maintenance also matters.
