Benelli M1/S90 with Tacstar 6rd side saddle -- failure to eject

Has anyone ever run across this. I mounted a Tacstar 6 round sidesaddle on my Benelli M! Super 90. With 6 rounds in the sidesaddle, the gun will not cycle completely and fails to eject the spent round. I thought that I may have tighted the screw for the sidesaddle too much, so took off the shell holder part, loosened the mounting plate and tried the shotgun without the shell holder mounted. Gun cycled just like it should. Remounted the shell holder portion of the sidesaddle and went to do some shooting. Won't cycle again. My only conclusion is that the weight of the shells in the sidesaddle is absorbing a portion of the recoil and not allowing the action to cycle completely. Anyone know of any way to correct this? I'm going to the range in a couple of days and will experiment with exactly how many shells are necessary before the action fails to function.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

The gun is virtually new. I bought it used but it had less than two boxes of shells run through it. I tested it at the range yesterday and you can put 4 shells in the sidesaddle. If I put a 5th shell in the sidesaddle, the gun doesn't cycle.

Probably a correct assumption. Benelli used the ARGO system on the M1014 in order to allow accessories (weight) to be added to the shotgun and still have reliable function.
