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.
