I recently purchased a used 725. I have shot it about 5 times. After each outing I cleaned the barrels and oiled the gun. Yesterday after shooting, I cleaned and used some Shotgun grease. When I was completed, I was not able to put the forearm back on. (luckily shotgun world had a similar post and I was able to get it on) I had to apply some strength against the ejector hammers. It seems like the ejectors and ejector hammers were the issue. Once the gun was assembled everything was working but the it now feels stiff. Any thoughts. What should I do going forward?

Check the three Philips head screws that attach the fore end wood to the fore end iron, if they become loose they can cause what you describe.

Thank you. That was it!!! They were about a few turn loose.
