Rem 870 problems...

Anyone experience a feeding issue with the Rem 870 Express in regards to slug usage? We have one shotgun with tactical extension tube, when each slug is fired, the action can not be worked, and the user has had to whack the stock on the ground to get the action to release to extract and chamber a new round. We have attempted changing the barrel and extended mag tube (& spring) with the same results.... suggestions? This does not appear to be a problem with buckshot or birdshot.

    this is just a guess, sounds like you have a rough spot or burr in or near chamber mouth, and the slugs are expanding the plastic hull causing them to stick, shot and buckshot would not expand these as tightly.just my 2cents
