Didn't/Doesn't some 870s have feed issues?

Heard a lot about Remington quality going down the drain. So yes I heard that complaint as part of the problem.

Out of the box my 870 EXPRESS Tactical didn't want to feed more than 5 three inch rounds... To fix the issue I dissembled the shotgun, cleaned and lubed it well. Has worked perfect since.


My understand is that the internals don't have enough lube in the mag extender, so the spring acts kind of wonky till its lubed, and broke in good. 


My Plain Jane 870 EXPRESS without the mag extender has worked perfect since day one.
