Hi all. New to the forum here and have a quik question I hope sombody can answer. I just bought a new 11-87 Supermag and I seem to be having trouble unloading 3 1/2 inch shells. Every time I go to unload it the shells it seem to jam up. Im doing it exactly how the manual says to do it but still having problems. Any tips on this ?

Pull back the bolt with more effort when unloading.

Look into your loading port.

Push the shell lifter up.

To each side of the frame you will see a metal bar. Press each one until the shell is ejected from the loading tube.

Repeat this process until all shells are ejected.

Unloading a gun in this manner prevents accidental discharges.

I've also seen many rack their shotgun several times to eject all shells...an accident waiting to happen.

Still one in the chamber or did you forget about that one?

Give the guy some credit. He knows he cant push his shell lifter up until the chamber is open!

To hell you can't! He fumbled around unloading the mag and never once in the directions cleared the action.

I too have an 1187 and have found that if you hesitate in the slightest it will jam up just as you said. I have found that the faster I pull the less it will jam up.

I've had it jam up in the field as well...have a small screw driver handy.

Remingtons Instructions:

1. point firearem in safe direction

2.Engage safety. (RED BAND WILL NOT SHOW)

3.pull the operating handle fully rearward to remove shell from the chamber.

4. close and open the action until all shells are removed.

Pretty simple instructions. As I said before. Pull back with more effort. The 3.5" will clear

Think about it. Muzzle in safe direction, safety on and figures not on the trigger. Why fumble around trying to do it some other way? Probably has more potential to be unsafe than the intended added safety. Although I would add to these Remington instructions I have copied to visually inspect the chamber and magazine port to verify the action is indeed clear.

Thanks fellas. Thats all it was. Just had to use a little more effort and be a little faster. Never owned a semi auto before. Always shot O/U and SxS. Again, thanks ....
