I just picked up a Remington 870 express magnum. previouse owner had glued a velcro shell holder to the side. I didnt like it very much so I took it off. Now im stuck with the sticky residue of the glue. How do I get it off?

Second is, the gun came with a red dot (took that off) and adjustable stock (hard plastic?) after a my first trip out with it. I now have a brusied shoulder. Anyone know of a decent stock perhaps with a recoil pad? That wont tear up my shoulder? I like the composite look. Not a fan of the wood ones.

And on a side note is there a general procedure for taking the stock off? I have stared at this thing for hours trying to figure it out.

About the adhesive: Goo Gone. Should be safe to use on the receiver. I have a bottle at my house and I use it all the time. Nothing but good things to say. Goo Gone, 8 Oz.: Kitchen & Dining@@AMEPARAM@@

Goo gone works as does skin so soft. Either will work and save the finish.

Remove the recoil pad. You should see a large hole in the middle of the stock. One large screw with a slotted head should be visible.

Put the stock deep into your shoulder and then roll with the recoil as opposed to letting the stock smack your shoulder.

Make sense?

I inherited a Mossberg 590 from one of our investigators when he left the department. He had glued a shell hold on the side and it come off. This left a mess. I tried WD-40 and other solvents with no luck. Finally, I used a heat gun on low. I warmed the glue enough of roll it off the gun.

I have a Speed feed on my personal 870 and haven't had a problem with the recoil.

The gun doesn't have a recoil pad on it right now. It has an adjustable stock. It's a hard plastic. Hurts like a mofo

This is what the back of my shotgun looks like.
