woodsie Posted January 21, 2006 Share Posted January 21, 2006 If you recall, this is my problem on my 4-5 year old M1. What happens is, I shoot, and it ejects the first shell, and while its bringing up the second shell, its getting caught in the bottom of the action, almost like its closing before it brings up the new shell, and they the action gets stuck about at the end of the brass.(plastic side) To bring the new shell up, I have to Pull back on the action, and then it slides in. Today for the first time, the gun locked back and stayed in the open position like it was empty, but it still had the third shot left.(which was in the bottom of the reciver) I dont know if this is part of the same problem. 2 weeks ago, at everyones advise, I put the Factory recoil spring back into it, and the original magazine spring. I keep it well oiled with Breakfree CLP, and it was in the 50's today. It was good for one hunt, and after that it has jammed a couple times, and today I shot a lot, and it jammed several times. One thing to note is that when I push the Carrier (long retangular metal peice on the bottom of the reciever) in and out like when cleaning or looking at it, it sometimes sticks in the upwards position. Could that be the problem. I am shooting the Kent TM 3" shells. I shoot this gun alot, both with Kent heavy shells, and a TON of Sporting Clays and skeet. During a busy month, I can easily go through a case of shells. I wonder if some pieces could just be wearing out. THANKS for your help, W.
