Now, now, now... Nothing wrong with the 870 Express (as per mine in my original photo/post). I just keep it lightly coated in Ballistol to prevent rust. The Express models have been long rumored to simply... rust, just by looking at them..

A gunsmith told me a trick to do with "rough action" 870 Express's where sometimes a spent shell casing gets stuck in the chamber & first 2-3 inches of the barrel: Take a 20ga bore brush and wrap it with #0000 steel wool, and GENTLY use it inside the chamber and the first few inches of the barrel, to hone it and smooth it out. Some models of 870 Express have chamber/barrel issues where they are not as smooth as they should be.
