Im just wondering if there are any parts in the trigger group,bolt etc etc that can be polished or some how worked to allow me to smooth out the action a little more than what it is.
does anyone have any pics or any kind of walk thru perhaps?
Also Im thinking about ditching the stock trigger group and dropping in a police unit but swapping out the police sear spring with the express sear spring..this should be pretty straight forward no?

Visable-assassin, Where are you at in TX.

I'm in Dallas for the next couple of weeks and if you have the right tools/in the same town, I can come by and give the shotgun a once over this weekend (read bored and if it doesn't warm up, won't be golfing).

Polish the action arms and some lubrication, and well, just shoot the thing. things should loosen up eventually.

Honestly take the money you will spend on all that swapping, and go buy 200 rds of skeet ammo, go to back woods traps, and shoot it all on four rounds of skeet. The action will be smooth as butter, and youll be a better bird hunter.

I'm in El Paso dude.
Well chances are I've got the right tools I just need to know which parts I can mess with without risking any kind damage to the weapon or possibly shortening its lifespan

I have polished the internals of two 870s. It is reasonably easy to do.

The areas I concentrated on were-
- The action bars- The top, bottom and outside where they contact the receiver. The left rear action bar where it contacts the action bar release. And also the shell stop camming surfaces.
- The locking slide- The outside edges that contact the receiver and the bottom face that rides over the hammer.
- Trigger group- The hammer face and the action bar release.

I used a fine diamond stone to remove burrs and then polished the parts on a cotton buffing wheel using wax.

It worked really well. The guns are ultra smooth now.

Be careful not to take too much metal away from areas like the action bar release as the gun can become unsafe.

Sorry I don't have any pictures.

thank you man :)
I was looking at using jewelers files and jewelers rouge on a Dremal at slow speed where I can...and then cleaning it up fully.

I was figuring that the release would be a place of concern so Ill be double careful there

200 rounds doesnt do squat. I have a few thousand thru mine - and while it is smoother than it was when new - it aint even close to my Mossy 500A right out of the box.
