question on brass being dented on shotgun shell upon ejection



Log in to see fewer ads
First, I know that this is not a rimfire question but thought maybe some Remington person might be familiar with the problem and possible cure.

I have a Remington model 11-87 Super Magnum Turkey Special shotgun (this is a Hevi-Shot compatible gun) and when ejecting an UNFIRED shell from the chamber the side of the brass on the shells are being dented, I would assume by the extractor claw.

The extractor is NOT stuck/gummed up, it is loose and free swinging.

Some recent Internet research I have done on this problem indicated that the cause of this denting of the brass, is because the user of the shotgun (in this case me) is not ejecting the shell from the chamber quickly enough, in that, I am not pulling the bolt back smartly/hard/fast enough - basically equivalent to the speed the bolt would come back by actually firing the gun.

Is it possible that the above is the correct answer to this problem ? And if so, would still seem like a design flaw to me, in that, I should not have to pull the bolt back with a certain amount of force/speed in order for the shell's brass to not be dented by the extractor claw.

Thanks.

If they eject fine while firing, then I would agree that you are not pulling the bolt back hard enough. Still seems odd though.

While pondering this... it could happen when loading also. Once fired, that brass will size itself to the chamber walls. So do not dismiss it being a feeding issue.

Thanks, I had not thought of that. Will consider this possibility.
