There are a few things you should know before taking apart your Remington 870 express:

  • Always make sure the gun is unloaded and pointed in a safe direction before beginning any maintenance or cleaning.
  • Also, be aware that different models and variations of the 870 may have different disassembly instructions.

1. To take apart your Remington 870 express, you’ll first need to remove the magazine cap and barrel.

2. Then use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the stock mounting screws.

3. Next, slide the stock off of the receiver and gently pull out on the hammer spring assembly until it pops free from the trigger plate.

4. You can now remove the bolt carrier group and firing pin from the rear of the receiver.

5. Finally, use a knife or other sharp object to carefully remove the trigger group from the receiver.

With the Remington 870 express disassembled, you can now clean all of the parts and reassemble them in reverse order. Be sure to keep all moving parts lubricated during reassembly to ensure smooth operation.
