Hell I just put it through its paces and in about 70 rounds fired of various ammo it had about 5 hang ups. They were failures to eject where the round would go to eject, spin around and the brass would jam on the wall of the receiver and the empty hull end would be sticking out of the ejection port.

It seemed to happen less and less frequently the more I shot it.


If it keeps this up I'm getting rid of it.

It did it with sts remington loads, estate full power, and fiocchi reduced recoil.

Nothing wrong with that shotgun that a few hundred rounds and a couple good cleanings won't fix, I shoot a lot of the Wally World Federal Top Gun target and it would be great for low recoil while working the kinks out of the action on that Express, have fun breaking it in.

Well I found a mesa tactical Leo adapter with kynshot hydraulic recoil buffer new in box on sale for a song.

My question is of the two listed stocks which one would you all go with?

1. Magpul STR with precision fit Limbsaver pad
2. B5 bravo sopmod stock?

I'm leaning towards the Magpul.

Also I talked to Remington and they said cerakoting the gun does not void the lifetime parts and labor warranty. They said it would void the finish warranty. The finish is junk anyhow so that'd be no great loss lol!

I followed Remington customer service advice and polished the chamber following jd McGuire's instructions. Fired 50 rounds of Remington 7 1/2 shot Target loads. I bought the 100 round bull pack at Walmart and it fired them all flawlessly with no malfunctions.
