    Default Remington 870 slide issues

    Hello, I have a problem with my 870 the slide release button is staying in the pushed in position, and the slide won't lock in the forward position. Has anyone experienced this before? Is there A simple fix or do I need to find a good gunsmith in the Valley?
    That would be my second question where is the best place to get it fixed if it's not just a simple fix.
    Thanks in advance for any info

    The trigger group might need to just be cleaned. Have you taken it out?

    Otherwise, wild west guns is the remmy service center, and they can fix it if there is anything actually wrong with it.

    I'm pretty familiar with those actions, if you want to get together sometime I'm sure we can figure out what is wrong with it. I'm between Palmer and Wasilla.

    The forend nut is probably loose. The wood is all the way forward, but the tube is not. Tighten the nut on the forend tube and it should work fine.

    Gunbugs, as I read your post I thought there's no way that could be it. Then I checked it. It was loose by about 3/4 of a turn.
    Problem solved.
    Thanks for an easy solution. ( don't I feel dumb)
    Thanks everyone

    Not the first time I've seen it. 20+ years working on guns pays dividends. Cheers.
