870 Ejection Weak

I bought a used 870 Wingmaster.   I have to rack it harder than other pump shotguns I've owned to ensure it ejects.   Are the some things I can do to improve the ejection?   It never fails to extract, the hull doesn't quite make it out of the load port.

check the ejector....used? it may be worn. Of course the extractor may be worn out too...check that too. Those are the only two mechanical things that would cause you issues. The only other problem would be between the trigger and the ground.

Check to make sure the ejector is fully intact. The spring steel should be tight at the rivet and have a springy bend in it when pushed towards the receiver. Also make sure the tip of the grooved plate the ejector rides in is still intact. They occasionally break. It should lock up with the barrel. 

 

If the ejector needs replaced it’s a definite gun smith job. Rivet needs to be drilled out and replaced and usually the receiver needs to be refinished.
