GtpSpecialEdition, Thanks for the pictures. It will help a lot it debugging these issues.
following up with my grizzly issue (fail to feed)
gave it a serious lube job and left it soaking wet with oil as I fed 50 or so rounds through it. It seems it just needed to be "worked in" a bit cause she's feeding great now!
I had a great time with it and am so relieved that I don't have a dud. I didn't have to do any filing or anything, just running shells through it seemed to do the trick after a while.
For anyone else having similar issues, make sure you clean the hell out of it and give it lots of lube, it should come around.
@CanadaAmmo Any word on the 8.5 mag fed grizzly? Pre-orders up yet?
Anyone else had their front sight fall off?? I have a 12.5" grizzly with ghost sights...I took it shooting out of the box new...after 8rounds the front sight flew off and hit me in the head...
Just wondered if anyone else has had the same issue??
Having a great deal of trouble assembling a DA Grizzly 12.5 after cleaning, particularily feeding the bolt back into the receiver. It sits on the bolt carrier correctly, properly on the slide rails, I line up the rails, push them back into the receiver, as soon as the bolt gets there, I press the springs but the bolt is stuck and won't go any further. No manual or schematic with this shotgun. Watched every youtube video possible on 870 takedown/cleaning and NO ONE gets stuck here on this step. Starting to think something might be broken. Emailed canadaammo and didn't hear anything back. Anyone know of an online manual or had experience with this issue and managed to resolve it? This is the standard 12.5" version, no mag, with bead sight.
^^ you have to depress one spring, slide it back a little, then depres the 2nd spring and it will come back all the way
Phoenix in Edmonton has another shipment in, I'm getting the one with the mag this time.

I have tried depressing both springs, the issue is with depressing the first, the bolt will not move a little when I do so, it is locked up. Removing the bolt and bolt carrier, I depress the first spring and am able to bring the pump rails right back into the receiver as should be the case when the bolt and carrier are on board... As soon as I try it a second time with only the rails and bolt carrier, the thing locks up completely again, unable to bring it into the receiver, spring is depressed completely. This was fun to shoot, but I'm starting to think its cheap Chnese **** that is not going to go back together. If you've watched 870 videos, you know how easy it is when depressing the springs to have the bolt practically slide back into the receiver. This is not the case. The ****ing thing is completely locked. I've even tried forcing the bolt, while pressing the front spring to the point where the spring stays down but when I press the second spring (further to the rear of the receiver, the thing doesn't give a millimeter. The problem seems to be the bolt carrier. ****!!! Just ordered the CZ and another DA, this time the 8.5"... Guess I won't take this piece of **** apart next time, when cleaning time comes, I'll throw it out and buy another like a ****ing Lexmark printer or something. Jesus.
