My problem is somewhat more complicated. Once I chamber a round and release the second, the third will not release from the tube after firing the first two. I have broken down the shotgun and inspected the moving parts, and all seem to be fine, but when I put it all back together again, it still won't load the third shell. Is there a trick, or is my SBE broken. P.S. I bought the gun after it was used for duck hunting for two seasons, so the break-in period is not the problem?
