Hey all. In November of 2019, I found one of these shotguns as a gunsmith special for $79. I knew it would be rough when I bought it, and I wasn't disappointed--no front or rear sights, no safety, trigger assembly gone, no cartridge stop or interrupter and broken buttstock. I should've picked up parts sooner, but I waited. I placed the order 2 days before all the covid shutdowns and only got the parts I needed last week. After putting everything together, everything seems to be working smoothly--with one small exception. I have a couple of 12 gauge snap caps. I cannot seem to load either one into the magazine. They load all the way to the rim, then get blocked by the shell stop. I'm not too familiar with shotguns (this is my first one, actually--give me an M1 Garand,svt40 or an SKS and I can make those run perfect) so I'm not sure if I should file the shell stop at an angle, shorten it a bit, try fiddling with its position or just gently bend the thing. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, guys.
