    Well I'd imagine the first thing they would say is to try different ammo. But if something doesn't work or malfunctions because the bolt or someother part is not made properly or up to QC it would be fixed. I've gone through about 20 shells now and haven't had a problem. My Ruger 10/22 on the other hand has a failure to eject atleast once per clip.

    The Ruger will have a pretty strong recoil spring since it's brand new. Wife has one and even after hundreds of rounds it will not eject if you feed it sub-standard Velocity ammo.
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    I bought a remington 870 a few years ago and while i was shooting trap my magazine cap came loose and the next few shots broke my ejector spring. Technically it was my fault for not tightening the magazine cap but Remington covered it under warranty anyway. I was a happy customer after that and my next purchase was a 597 instead of the Rugerr 10/22. The warranty process did take about 2 monthes to complete though.

Now I have very little friends that hunt so I'm learning on my own which is fine by me, but when it comes to choosing the proper firearm I'm a little lost. I would like 1 gun that is able to hunt grouse and rabbit. I've been considering either a .410 or a 12 gauge. I've been leaning to the 12 being that the ammo is considerably cheaper, and I could eventually use it to hunt larger game as well. But would it be too much? I don't want to blow them to pieces I want to eat them . I'm okay with going into the stores and asking questions but I don't want the guy to think I'm completely lost and try to take advantage of that either. What do you use? Gauge/choke/shot?

    12 gauge is definitely more versatile. My first gun was a Remington 870 Express 12 gauge. When I first got into hunting, I was into rabbits & waterfowl. And it worked great. Later on I bought a rifled barrel for deer hunting. For rabbits & grouse I use #6 shot and Iíve never had a problem

    If your lucky a miracle will happen but don't count on it.
    Do you know anyone in the GTA that might help with gun fitting?
    I am kind of in the same shoes now. Complete beginner. When buying gun in cabelas only got attitude in response when asking about how to fit the gun to.myself.
    Are there any professionals that.might help? What would such service cost in ballpark?

    Thank you.

    You might try Precision Arms , on King Rd. east of # 400 Hwy.
    You may have to be careful on how you approach them, sometimes they have an attitude problem also.
    They are at 2974 King Rd.

    If you are the type for reading, look up "stock fitter's bible" by Rollin Oswald it will teach you a whole lot about gun fit. I read this book a few years ago and have adjusted my own shotguns ever since. I've had plenty of sour experiences with gun shop folks treating me like it's a burden to answer a couple questions.
