Default rem 870 plug



Advertise Here

I have a remington 870 express and I would like to take the inhibitor plug out of it.

all of the tear down videos have a different style cap than mine and I cant figure out how to get it out.


its one solid peice with a hole in the middle that looks like it takes a special tool or something and has the number 2 on it.

I will post some pics if I can figure out how

If its the same one I'm thinking of, it is 2 peice, it just doesn't look that way. You should be able to pop it out with a flathead screwdriver. It should only be a thin peice of metal.

You could take the barrel off, then unscrew the mag tube.

Remington 870 plug

You'll start by unscrewing the magazine cap fron the end of the magazine. It's the knurled knob that also holds the barrel in the receiver. The forearm slides back and forth on the magazine. Gently pry out the spring stop once the cap is off. The spring and plug/follower should just fall out when the weapon is held down, but if you're not holding the barrel, it'll fall out of the receiver also. Some magazine plugs have molded weak points that allow you to break them off to increase the amount of ammo in the magazine. A large pair of pliers with padded jaws may be needed to break the cap loose.

Brownells carries weapon specific tools for gunsmiths and they sell to civilians.

Let us know, I think the second set of instructions is what you need, not the ones for the round hole, but the ones for the slotted hole. As far as I know, they only come round or slotted. We got both set of instructions here now
