    My brother-in-law has an 870 that needs the chamber polished. He lives in Cleveland, OH. I would to direct him to a good gunsmith in the area.
    Thanks

    take the barrel off- put it in a vise- get an electric drill and a cleaning rod

    Put a mop on the rod- with 00 steel wool and some car rubbing compound on it

    Turn on and run moving back and forth for about a minute ( be patient)

    Inspect

    turn on again

    If that doesnt work you might want to forget the idea of polishing any more out

    If it does- you save 40 dollars in gas- some time and 75 buck in labor on a barrel that is probably only worth $100

    regards from Iowa
