    i dunno if the pic worked at all but on my 11-87 where the magazine tube inserts into the action part of the gun there is a piece of metal that goes over the mag tube that slides in under a clip type thing, and that piece of metal came of and with it it took a chunk of the magazine tube with it you'll see what i mean if the picture works, i am wondering if anyone else has seen this and if it would be functional without damaging the gun further. any input would be great thanks.

    apparently this was caused by something wrong in the forend putting torque on the magazine tube and its gonna run me up to like $200 to fix, hopefully i can talk remington into repairing it for free, i tell ya my next gun is gonna be a break action so much less to go wrong, maybe a bt-99 and if i get real spendy an XT.
