I bought a remington 887 2 years ago and have had problems with it hitting me in the cheek every time I shoot, it's gotton to the point that i have actually started bleading before. I've been shooting guns my entire life and have tried to figure it out with my trap coach so i know that i have a proper mount. I was just wondering if anyone else has had this same problem with the 887 and what they did to fix it.

I recently won the 887 at an event, but I haven't shot it yet.  I'll let you know if I have the same problem.

I've got two 887's. They shoulder better than any of the Novas I own. You may have to take it to a gunsmith for fitting or email Remington for suggestions.

On a different note......it's probably the most durable shotgun I've ever owned. They're damn near indestructable in my opinion.

Good luck!!!!

Yeah it shoulders and shoots great for me too the only problem is that it hits me in the face and i start fliching because of it and it throws me off. I've shot trap and duck hunted with it and love how it shoots. I would have brought it into a gunsmith early but i didn't think that they could do anything with the stock other than relplace it with a different because it's synthetic.

It may be because the drop at the heel, a kick eez cheek eez stock pad may help a bunch, you just have to figure out how dense of one you could could use with out making you gun pattern too high. The other problem could be the length of pull, you could correct that with some of those plates that they sell on Midway USA.

Alright

I just purchased an 887 Nitro Mag myself last week and took it to the range and had the exact same problem with it hitting my check bone. After only 25 rounds my cheek bone was numb. I grabbed my brothers' Benelli Nova and mounted it to my shoulder and realized that I need to get my 887 fitted/adjusted. When I mount the 887 to my shoulder to be in proper position with my line of sight right down the barrel, the top of the stock is pressing against my upper cheek bone (just below my eye). When I did the same with the Nova, the top of the stock was pressing on the soft part of my cheek (in line with the corner of mouth). That extra .5" to 1" difference I believe is the culprit. Once I get it adjusted and try it out I will report back.

Ive owned my 887 for about a year now and i have not had this problem. And i need to agree that this is gun is damn near INDESTRUCTABLE! Try getting it re-fitted or email Remington on what to do about it. But belive me that gun is amazing and will last you forever.

I took my gun into an authorized Remington gunsmith and they said they could not drop the comb. Remington does not make a shim for the 887. So at this point, I'm really bummed as I cannot shoot this gun and I cannot get it adjust to fit me.
