STUCK BOLT !!Remington 870 20 gauge Express Magnum HELP!!!
 
Hello!! FOLKS!!! I have a very big problem that i hope you all can help me with. While disassembling my Rem. 870 ( which was a gift for me, unfortunately the last owner have not clean it for years.) after taking out the barrel, I tried taking out the bolt and the pump but they both would not budge. I press the shell release as well but it still won't come out of the action. I did how ever took the trigger off, it was kind of hard to take it off but im sure its just the gump built up in it. Is this a problem where i should take it to the gun smith? If you guys know anything please HELP!!! Thank you.

It is locked against the shell latches. Push it back into the receiver slightly and hold the shell latch down while pulling it forward. It should slide past the shell latch while doing this. Getting it back together will be even more tricky. You have to work with both shell latches instead of just one. If you can clean it fairly well while it is still in the receiver, you may want to just leave it in for simplicity sake.

Hi I need help on my Remington 870 20 gauge Express. While disassembling my 870 for cleaning , after taking off the barrel I couldn't get the pump and the bolt out. It seems to be stuck! I press the shell release and tried to pulled it out but it's not working. I got the trigger out but the bolt is still stuck. How do i get it out?
