Default Remington 870 barrel

Just received my 18" barrel for my 870 from Remington today. It is my old turkey shotgun and I thought I'd make it my HD shotgun. Anyway, I installed it and noticed that the last 1/4" or so toward the receiver, racking is kinda tight. Anybody know if this is normal? Does it need some rounds down range to break it in? My shotgun is around 19 years old, would this make any difference? I wouldn't think so and I did email Remington before I ordered and they said it was the right barrel. What do you think? Any idears? Thanks.

I assume you mean it's (bolt) sticky when in the foremost position? Is the barrel aligned exactly? It's not real common but the recess in the barrel for the lug may be on the tight side. I'd just work the hell out of the action with some lapping compound on the lug. That should take care of it.

Thanks Stalkingbear, I did work the action...I work the hell out of it and found where it was rubbing. A little sanding on the fore-end (between the barrel and fore-end tube) did the trick. Thanks.
