Quote:Stop Right There: Remington Shotguns Recalled
Model 887s may slam fire, Remington urges shooters to stop using them.

Remington Model 887 Pump Shotgun. (Remington Arms Co)

Many Remington Model 887 pump shotguns have been found to be prone to a defect that may cause them to slam fire and are therefore being recalled.

A slam fire is when a round is fired just by being chambered. Firing pins on 887s have been known to stick in the forward position and thus can detonate a primer when a live shell is chambered.

Thank you for posting this, I was going to take my 887 out this weekend.
My guns have killed less people than Obama's ATF has.

I was considering a 870SP, but I think I'll get the Mossberg 590 instead.

I've got to say, I really like my 887. I got the tactical model, which just means it has the short barrel and extended tube, but it's a fine gun. The only downside is that the parts aren't compatible with the 870's and nobody makes accessories for it, so you can't find aftermarket stocks anywhere. Not a big deal since it's pretty much set up the way I wanted. I had originally planned on buying a used 870 and replacing all the old stuff but they were going for more than my NIB 887 cost, $400.
