Trying to figure out what's wrong with my 870.

    I've wanted an 870 for a while, and finally pulled the trigger on a Synthetic Express Super Mag at an auction.

    Once I got it home I broke it down and cleaned it (which it really needed) and put it back together. I couldn't get it to pump after the basic cleaning, broke it down again and cleaned the trigger assembly and I can tell what the problem is, but not how to fix it. The release button for the pump gets stuck in after doing a dry fire and you can't rack it. So, does anyone have any thoughts on what to try next? Clean and oil it again? I'm at my wits end, especially since I don't have the internal knowledge on these.

    I suppose it's time to learn. Any thoughts on the situation would be greatly appreciated.

    JD is the man. But check the nut holding the forend onto the action bars. If it's not tight enough it won't lock into battery.

    I just now saw this, is there a time that would be best for you? You are my savior, this thing has been driving me crazy and it's sitting in the corner right now so I don't go crazy messing with it not knowing what needs to be done.
