    Dusted off an 870 20 gauge express Saturday for skeet. Love the gun but it has had a history of "jumping the bolt" and by that i mean the bars somehow twist or jump the bolt and lock the gun up.

    This time was more severe. Usually when this happens you can drive out all the pins and field strip the problem away. Now it appears that the bars may actually be bent and the gun will not reassemble and function. Anyone ever have this problem? Any suggestions are welcome.

    Figured it out. I forgot you have to seat both bars in the receiver. Works like a champ
