I was gifted a Remington 870 Express Magnum in 12ga.
The "gun" came with a barrel, receiver and 2 bags full of parts.

The previous owner said that it stop functioning and when he took it apart, he lost some of the pieces.

To make a long story shorter......I inventoried all the parts and it turns out it was only missing the 2 trigger retaining pins. I just happen to have had those parts laying around in a misc. parts bin.

I cleaned up all of the trigger group parts (they were all gunked up)

I reassembled the trigger group, cleaned up the receiver, oiled everything up and reassembled.....

Low and behold it functions perfectly.
Apparently the "malfunction was simply the result of non-existent cleaning and maintenance.

At some point, it will require some refinishing as there was some surface rust on the barrel from sitting out in the garage for years. But for now it is a perfectly functional Express Magnum.

All in all..... A fun little project.

My smith calls this "malfunction induced behind buttplate".

"Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don't mean to do harm -- but the harm does not interest them. Or they do not see it, or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves." – T.S. Eliot

"The right of self defence is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction." - St. George Tucker

A careful definition of words would destroy half the agenda of the political left and scrutinizing evidence would destroy the other half. - Thomas Sowell

"To ban guns because criminals use them is to tell the innocent and law-abiding that their rights and liberties depend not on their own conduct, but on the conduct of the guilty and the lawless, and that the law will permit them to have only such rights and liberties as the lawless will allow...

For society does not control crime, ever, by forcing the law-abiding to accommodate themselves to the expected behavior of criminals. Society controls crime by forcing the criminals to accommodate themselves to the expected behavior of the law-abiding." - Jeff Snyder

Personal weapons are what raised mankind out of the mud, and the rifle is the queen of personal weapons. The possession of a good rifle, as well as the skill to use it well, truly makes a man the monarch of all he surveys. It realizes the ancient dream of the Jovian thunderbolt, and as such it is the embodiment of personal power. For this reason it exercises a curious influence over the minds of most men, and in its best examples it constitutes an object of affection unmatched by any other inanimate object.

Installed a recoil lug (Little Crow Gunworks) on 10/22 and bedded the action. Shoots noticeably better.

Groups went from quarter sized to dime sized at 50 yds.

Suppressor got my mags super dirty and clogged so took them apart and cleaned them up nice.

I went and helped with the Cascade / Adventure Protection "Ladies Day at the Range."

Lemme tell ya, these ain't no dainty women. Yeah, there was the usual .22 / .380 / 9mm shooting, but they also did a lot of blasting with the Coonan .357, and then took turns pulling both triggers simultaneously on the 12-gauge coach gun. icon_eek

Evilgnomez and I ran out to the Darington pit to sight in his custom 10/22 with the cabelas FFP scope. Its a fun little set up and its way more nimble than my cz455. Up next was his RIA 1911 in 22TCM and thats a real hoot!!! It reminds me of my RIA 9mm but a lot tighter in the frame to slide fit. Really the quality overall was a step up from mine. To end the trip one of the other random guys let me look through his trijicon TA11J-G, I really didn't think glass could be that clear...... Ya that might end up costing me money.

I and several other RSO’s at Evergreen Sportsman’s Club welcomed the local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution to ESC this morning for a great shoot. These are a great bunch of local gals who wanted to learn more about our sport. We had a wide range of experience among the group, from first time shooters to those with more experience and wanted to hone their skills. There were wide smiles all around. Another good day at ESC. Thanks to everyone for coming out to the range today. This is precisely why I volunteer, to share our sport. Woot.

Love helping first time shooters. Keep up the good work.

I installed Steel City magwells on a couple guns. One Pf940V2 and a FDE PF940CV1. The quality of the product is great. That said I'm not a fan of them on the 19 sized frame. Also, I installed Trijicon HD sights on the G20. The Safeway in Milton is getting kinda sketchy so I'm going to start carrying 10mm full time.
