i got a new 11-87 a few weeks back and it's a great gun and runs like a champ except....
every 25 to 50 rounds it has an "odd" malfunction. when i fire the gun the first round the bolt unlocks and moves back extracting and ejecting the first round. the second round is ejected from the magazine and is carried by the carrier up to the barrel where it is loaded. then the bolt falls forward and locks in battery. the carrier drops back to it's lower position. (all ok so far.) now the problem. when the carrier returns to it's lower position the #3 round pops out of the mag tube and sticks between the carrier and the bolt locking the whole mess in place and jaming the gun. i have to pull the pins an take out the trigger and carrier group to clear the jam.

so how do i fix it? do i have to send it back to Remington or is there something simple i can do?

Ditto, sounds like the stop spring tip is too short/not protruding far enough out, and when the action slams closed, the mag'd round is making it's way past the stop. Only real fix on this problem is to replace the defective spring, and this means restaking the new unit back in.
