This is my father's gun so I will not be able to put my hands on it until Christmas.

He was given the gun used.

First 2-3 boxes of shells worked OK.
The shells then started halfway ejecting(hanging out) some of the time.
He took it to a gunsmith for cleaning and it was a lot worse after that.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Steven

First off what sort of ammo are you using? Really light it may cycle it no matter what you do. But if your using a decent load then:

:make sure gas ports are clean and free of build up.

:Check o-ring for damage or even is its there.

:Next check gas piston rings. check for damage. There is two styles one is the 2 separate beveled rings or the newer 2 piece assembly One ring snaps over the other. The later doesn't seem to seal as good if you have that one. Still it should work with a standard trap load or so.

Start off with looking there.

PS: you didn't state gauge. I assume it is a 12ga, but in case it isn't and it is a 20ga it also should have a barrel seal activator between the o-ring and the gas piston rings. If that is missing it may cause your problems. The 12ga doesn't have this.
