I just got a Vang Comp big head safety, and put that into my gun this week (It was really easy btw), and I was playing with putting Vang's steel follower in the tube, when I found my "PROBLEM".
This is a used ex-police 870 wingmaster, and I haven't shot it. After I got the follower in, I shoved some shells in to see how it would go. When I got about 5 shells in, all of a sudden they started popping back out, and jammed up the gun. I had to pull the trigger out to clear the jam.
It seems that the tang that holds the shells in is either worn or bent in. I checked out one at a local gun store, and that is what it appeared to be.
Is this a simple household repair? Gunsmith? Or, something else??
I'm not adverse to tearing my guns apart!!!
