    I’m new to Trapshooters but not to trapshooting. I have been shooting since the mid seventies, mostly at the club level. I used an 870TB early on and more recently an SX1. I recently bought a 3200 for doubles. The gun performed flawlessly the first time out. I took the barrels off the clean the gun and then reassembled it. Now the barrel selector is stuck on the top barrel and won’t move. Is this something I might have done when I reassembled it? I don’t have a manual for the gun.
    Thanks, GJB

    These selectors do break sometimes. The linkages are relatively delicate. You can take the stock off the receiver and see what's going on.

    Be careful not to over tighten the stock bolt when putting it back on.
    Search 3200 here and you will find a ton of info.

    I will also send you a copy of the 3200 Field Service Manual if you send me an email to:

    PM sent.

    I was wondering if it might have been something I did when I reassembled the gun.
    Thanks

    Went to a friends house who is a gunsmith. Took the stock off and was able to move the selector. It was gummed up with hard grease. Every now and then it would hangup. When we looked further, the small threaded block that slides in a groove was broken at the threaded joint. Only the grease was holding it together. It looked like it would get off center in the groove and hang up.
    We called Laibs and left a message to try and get the part.

    Thanks for everyone's help.
