There was also a payout from them for the 870's of a certain serial number range. I bought an older 870 (ex-Lucas County Sheriff's shotgun), and emailed Remington about the serial number on mine. I don't want the big bucks like Eric got . I just want to know what the problem/solution is. That was 5 weeks and 2 emails ago and still haven't heard anything. Tooly, if you get a response, please let me know. TIA.
