New to me police trade in

So I recently acquired a 870 mag police trade in from a member here. First off lemme tell ya it was a smoking deal, and I am very happy with this bad boy. The one issue I seem to have is she seems to hang up on low base shells. When I fire big high base magnums she seems fine. When I shoot either brass or steel target loads every third or fourth hangs up. A lil re-rack/force it all works out. Iím not too worried about it, but Iím thinking of making this my truck gun to get back home in case shtf along w/ plates and extra buck and slugs. Iíve read that 870ís need a polish in the chamber. Yet the 1970 wingmaster Iíve had for ever eats everything smoothly. Any ideas or help from the rabble would (as always) be appreciated.
