    A (one) rather large flat rubber band around the receiver of the 1100 or the 11-87 will keep it
    from slinging the empties and hitting others on a trap line. You will have to experiment with
    location, ...

    A properly made MIM part is as good as a machined one, the problem is the manufacturing process
    must be very tightly controlled, and you can't do a non destructive test on all those little
    parts to ma...

    870s less dependable? What a crock. Some Mossberg or Remington guy always has to try to pull a
    one upper. The 500 and the 870 have both established a fantastic track record over more than a

    Put some tape on the rib so you don't scratch it. A small 6 point socket would be best, next
    best would be a box end wrench, and yes they do make them.

    Winchester Universals are probably THE absolute worst choice I can imagine for reloading.

    My short foray into the world of black powder, and more so into black powder substitutes, was
    ended by the necessity of the clean up. Taking apart single action revolvers is not difficult,
    but I am ve...

    I was going to ask that question.

    To add a thought- when a gun (or most anything mechanical) is not working, there are a few
    common reasons why-1. Dirt, foreign matter, etc interfering with operation2. Part that is
