    I have a 870 competition with a crack in the receiver. I have spoken with Ahlmans Repair shop and they can install a new receiver using the gas parts from my gun. Does anyone know if it is possible to have the receiver repair? possible tig welding?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    I have owned comps for years. All you have to do is machine the receiver to look like a 1100 and it will fix your problem. This will depend upon how long the crack is, if it is only a 1/2 to 3/4" the fix will work fine.
