I have recently purchased an 870 express and disassembled it today. As I was putting the action bars and bolt back into the receiver, I pushed the carrier upwards and it made a click and stayed up in the receiver. Since the receiver was empty, the carrier was able to travel further up than normal. Just wanted to make sure I have not damaged anything. Seems to be working fine, just wanted a second opinion. Thanks for your help.

If you have the gun completely assembled now and the carrier is raising up and down as it's supposed to do when you cycle the action, then you didn't hurt a thing. The internal parts on this (and most) guns are fairly sturdy as long as you don't FORCE them somewhere they don't want to go. That is when you break something. Just a simple lifting up of the carrier is no problem at all. No harm done. :lol:
