I would agree w that. I was disappointed w the fit n finish for awhile and then I bought mine in 08-9 and I was pleasantly surprised. Mine has never failed to perform. I cleaned n polished what I could but it will never be a Wingmaster.

I was going to try and stone it but my gunsmith advised against it. He said to just lube it well and then lend it to a teenager for a week. (It will wear in )

A friend of mine gave his Rem 870 12ga to his son a couple of years ago and purchased a new one in 20 ga. While shooting the extractor broke. He brought it to a gunsmith and it broke again. He brought it to another gunsmith and after 2 rounds it was busted once more. He finally contacted Remington and was told to return it. One week later it was returned to him with a new bolt and it's worked perfectly ever since. At least they stand by their products.
