Well, i did it again, shame on me!!
Well 2 years ago I purchased a brand new 870 12 gauge turkey gun. When I attempted to pattern it I discovered it was shooting 20 inches to the left or right ( can't remember which) soon inspection I discovered that the barrel was sitting in the receiver crooked! After discussing the problem with my Smith, we sent it back to Remington.
It came back approx 10 days later, with a invoice saying it was repaired, but when my Smith took it out of the box and checked it he discovered the problem still existed! Longer story short, we sent it back and after about 2 months and Alot of heated e-mail, the gun was replaced.
Now jump forward to today, I just took my brand new 870 20 gauge rifled slug gun out of the box and installing the cantilever mouth on it I discover that the base is soldered to the barrel crooked!!!!!! There's no way I could get enough windage out of a scope to compensate for it! I guess I will have to start the return process all over again, this is a shame, I'm batting 2 for 2 for quality control issues with Remington. This WILL NOT happen again, Remington has seen the last of my money!
Get me once, shame on you, get me twice, shame on me, won't happen again!!!! Anyone who purchases a new Remington firearm, please check EVERYTHING out with it before leaving the shop it mite save you a headache later, or be like me and find another company to give your money to!
