    I have an 870 Competition with a cracked receiver. Can this be repaired by replacing with a receiver from any 870, or does it have to be specifically a Competition receiver? Thanks for any help.

    The recievers are indeed different.

    The last time I checked, Remington was still replacing these recievers under warrenty.

    Been quite a few years since I owned that model gun but seem to remember that Remington did not machine that receiever for a shell latch or any parts that are required for a second shell to feed from the magazine tube. You could put a standard barrel on them but then it was a regular 870 without the supposed recoil reduction operation in the magazine tube. Good luck.
