Picked up a new old stock 870 super mag, I was planning on using it for rabbits and clays. After the fact I was told the super mag does not to like to cycle 2 3/4" shells , any experience with this ?

mine cycles them just fine...the cycling of a pump is all user operation. Don't short stroke it and you are gtg.

I've seen two different super mag 870's have problems cycling, we never paid any attention to what shells did it.

Mine has eaten anything and everything I have ever fed it. Stroke it with authority and you are good to go with any length shells.

I only have two Super Mags and both eat EVERYTHING they're fed... never an issue.

I've had a super mag for a little over a decade. The only thing I've shot were 2 3/4's and it's been perfect.

All I have fired in mine are 2 3/4". No problems, except the chamber is a little tight and it doesn't like my friend's unsized reloads. All factory new shells, and sized reloads work great.

Thanks for all the replies. I will report back after a few boxes.
