Remington Model 887 Shotgun Recall

By Suzanne Wiley published on in Consumer Information

Only Remington Model 887 shotguns manufactured from December 1, 2013 through November 24, 2014 are affected. Remington urges Model 887 shotguns owners to take action immediately.

Senior Remington engineers determined that some of those Model 887™ shotguns could, under certain circumstances, unintentionally discharge.


RECALL NOTICE 887 with bolt mark

Remington has determined that some Remington Model 887™ shotguns manufactured between December 1, 2013 and November 24, 2014 may exhibit a defect causing the firing pin to bind in the forward position within the bolt, which can result in an unintentional discharge when chambering a live round.

Therefore, Remington is recalling ALL potentially affected products to fully inspect and repair. Remington has advised customers to immediately cease use of recalled shotguns and return them to Remington free of charge. The shotguns will be inspected, repaired, tested, and returned as soon as possible.

Owners of the recalled shotguns should not attempt to diagnose or repair the shotguns themselves. Remington has established a dedicated website and toll-free hotline to help consumers determine whether their Model 887™ shotguns are subject to recall:


Toll-Free Hotline:1-800-243-9700 (Prompt #3 then Prompt #2) Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EDT.

The website and hotline provide instruction on how to return recalled shotguns free of charge for repair.

Remington is notifying consumers of this recall through a broad range of platforms including media outreach, targeted advertising, and digital media promotion. Remington is also reminding all gun owners to always follow the Ten Commandments of Firearms Safety.

    I just heard yesterday that the 742 woodsmaster was also recalled, I sent them an email, waiting for an answer.

    Remington’s quality control has gone right down the tubes.. I have an 870 that the entire powder-coat finish peeled off in huge flakes.. I called them and they claimed to have never heard of that.. This defective powder-coat finish is discussed all over the net.. Remington is well aware of it and just doesn’t care.. Great way to concede the market to the competition, Remington..

    If its anything like thier Mod 700 recall, it takes a minimum of 12 weeks turn around if your lucky.

      Lucky won’t account for it for this problem.
      Slam fire is OK, under certain conditions, such as combat and slam fire is known and welcomed.
      Not for the real world.
      Here (now that I’m retired from the military), it’s damnably annoying in the defect.
      Still, a fix is most certainly welcome!

    First the R1 and now this. Remington needs to get their act together.

    Hopefully Remington has gotten the word out fast enough to avoid any accidental discharges and/or worse…………
