Remington Arms has announced a recall on ALL Model 887 shotguns manufactured between December 1, 2013 and November 24, 2014. Remington engineers have determined that some of these 887 shotguns could unintentionally discharge, therefore a general recall is necessary to ensure an inspection and correction of defective parts is completed.
The identified problem involves the firing pin binding up in the forward position within the bolt assembly. This problem can potentially cause the firing pin to protrude outward from the bolt face, allowing an unintentional discharge of a newly chambered live round.
Remington has provided the following methods of contact to determine if your Model 887 is a part of this general recall:
Toll Free Hotline: 1-800-243-9700, (Prompt #3, then Prompt #2), Mon-Fri, 0900-1700 EDT
Remington will provide free shipping of your Model 887 to their factory for inspection, repair, testing, and return shipping as soon as possible.
The Model 887 is Remington’s advancement of the venerable and widely popular Model 870. Combining the successful engineering of the 870, with the latest advancements in materials and manufacturing, the Model 887 has no exterior surface to rust. Remington uses their exclusive ArmorLokt™ construction process to seal the receiver and barrel in a vault of weather-impervious synthetic armor that’s both rustproof and scratch resistant.
The Model 887 comes in law enforcement and tactical configurations, as well as waterfowl and hunting versions.
