Have a rem 1187. Extended mag tube, 6+1. No idea on brand. It just does not want to load low brass shells. Itll load high brass, but it still feels like its binding. Wth is going on

Maybe something in your gas port? I know that wouldn't make the binding feel, but simple to check if you have a piece of thin wire like a guitar string.

Excuse me. I should have specified. I meant trying to load shells into the gun.

By gun do you mean down the magazine tube? Or manually loading like ghost loading into the chamber/barrel. Magazine tube could be a bur in the tube from tooling, could be the follower or spring. Did you try different brands of low brass, could be that specific brand.

Gunz are icky.
Pull the spring and follower out of the mag tube.
Inspect spring for kinks. Inspect follower for burrs and nicks.
Use a light and check down the tube and extension for any dents or debris that may impede feeding.
Use a cleaning rod and clean down inside the tube and extension.
May just need a new/improved follower.

Ive tried all of the following except new follower. I'm about to just buy a shit ton of new parts, and drop it off at a smith for overhaul

It could be the paint inside the tube or the itself bent. A lot of guys i know tend to smooth it out with a dowel on a drill and some fine sandpaper or some other type of smoothing material to make sure nothing like that happens. Theres several well known shotgun smiths in houston but i dont recall any specific names. Do a quick google and you may find em. If i remember correctly theres one in your actual area thats pretty big time.
