SBE 1 will not cycle 3.5inch or other shells


Recommended Posts

My sbe always cycled perfectly till probably 2 years ago. Sometimes it will cycle all three shells fine most times it wont. I just replaced the recoil spring and extractor spring. Is there anything else it might be? ive heard of the hammer being mushroomed over and catching the bolt, is this a possibility?


My scenario is the following: i shoot one shell and it ejects fine but the bolt does not come all the way back to allow the bottom shell up into the chamber. so with a 3.5 inch shell the silver bolt head is sitting above the brass of the shell below. The bolt can come back another 3/4 of an inch or so before its all the way back like it should.


Any help is appreciated
