I just got a new Remington 870 Police Magnum with the 2 shot extension tube. It should have a 7 shot capacity, 6 in tube with 1 in chamber.

But for the life of me it only accepts five 2 3/4" shells in the tube. It does not even budge after inserting the 5th rd. Seems impossible to get a 6th rd in the tube. Does it just need to be worked more, is there a trick or am I missing something.

Thanks in advance for your advice and assistance.

Thank I found the problem. Took the extension off and straigtened the spring. Believe it was caught on follower and not inserted in it. May alos have had a bind. Seems to work fine now.

So much for the 23 point inspection and test firing on the police models. Does not look like it was fired chamber and barrel are spotless. No residue at all. Just a little oil.

Will take it to the range next week and test it out. Will see than.
