    I removed my trigger assembly from my 870 and my shell stop came out. It was tough getting the trigger assembly back in. Is the shell stop supposed to fall out? If not how do I get it to stay on?

    Yep. It's suppose to stay in, but after 45+ years and 4 receivers I have yet to see one that does. At least they are aligned by the pin. Live with it.

    I bought a shell latch staker a couple years back. I had a latch break and decided to stake it in. I've used it for a couple other things, but not much.

    I had one fall out of one of my 1100s about 5 or 6 years ago, and I Superglued it as a temporary measure. Now I don't remember which one it was. I will never be tempted to stake another one.

    The shell stop in one of my 870s fell out and I had my local gunshop restake it. Bad move. Now it won't move at all. I am considering sending it to Remington for a proper repair.
