    Bought a new Remingaton 870 Express Tactical MagPul yesterday

    Hi, as the title says I bought a new Remington 870 Express Tactical MagPul yesterday because I didn't feel good without a good reliable shotgun in the house. This new 12 ga will beef-up my HD readiness condition. I feel a little more confident with the 870 close by with 8 rounds of #4 buck ready to reinforce my HK45c loaded with Hornady CD rounds and is always close by any time of the day and in addition there's a S&W Gov loaded with four Hornady CD 45's and two 410 double 00's on the night stand. (overkill...maybe)?????
    I was reading the manual and it looked complicated to clean (is it as difficult as it looks). I would love to hear from some of you guy's who own 870"s and let me low how you maintain yours and any advice you might have about tahe gun.
    Thanks,
    JimK73

    870s dont really need a lot of maintenance. I do try and keep em clean, but its not hard at all.

    Good purchase, Jim. Every household should have one.

    Didn't Remington take a 80 million dollar bribe from New York not to leave that state? We should support the companies that support our 2nd amendment rights not the ones that go to bed with the enemy.

    An 870 takes about 3 minutes to clean. Since there's a shot cup or buffering media surrounding the shot, the bore only gets a little schmutz from powder. There's no gas piston to clean.

    Unscrew the magazine cap, slide the forend off, then slide the barrel off the receiver/mag tube. Run a couple of dry patches through the bore until the bore looks shiny, and you're pretty much done. Maybe wipe the face of the bolt with a clean rag. Add a sparing drop of your favorite lube to the outside of the action bars, and reassemble. Done.

    Sine my shotguns get a fair amount of use for bird hunting, I have those long furry cleaning sticks which make cleaning shotgun bores a breeze. A couple of passes and the bore is mirror bright.

    Be sure and disassemble the magazine tube and spring annually. Clean off the follower as old oil and gunk tends to accumulate there. I used an 870 in trap for years and that is the only part that ever gave trouble (would get stuck). Course I was shooting thousands of shells a year too.

    Anyway, the 870 is solid as rock.
