I have had my 930 for a few months now, and overall it has been a great gun. It has been my primary waterfowl gun, and it has taken a lot of ducks. Early on in the season, it operated flawlessly. But recently, I have been having some misfires. First, it was with Kent Fasteel, and I thought it was just bad shells, because I think they tend to have harder primers than usual. But I just had a misfire with a Federal shell, so I think it might be the gun. On the shells that misfire, the primer is just barely indented, and the shell usually fires the second try.

Now, I clean my gun religiously after every hunt, but I think I might not be getting the trigger mechanism clean enough. The owners manual just says to use a brush to clean off the outside of the trigger mechanism. I'm not sure if this is good enough, because there is no way I can get all the junk out from inside.

Does anybody have any ideas or tips for me? I really like this gun but until I get this solved I will have to use my 500 from now on.

Thanks

Try soaking your trigger group, I use Hoppes Elite foaming gun cleaner, I spray it down an and let it soak for 20 - 30 minutes. Next I use Brake-Kleen (or any degreaser) and "hose out" everything really good. (I get a lot of dirt coming out of there) I then take an air compressor and blow out any excess. Then I use CLP Breakfree and soak eveything again then a light shot with the air and wipe off the extra....

Good luck and let us know how you make out...

I've been having the same problem my 935, it isn't liking the cold this winter. Misfires and slow rechambering are my problems. I cleaned the oil from my gun and tried with oil and without same problem. It worked great last 2 winters but I was using rem dry lube with Teflon, now I can't find any. I stretched my springs hopefully it helped.

as above poster said, cold winter weather does a number on oil. it will congeal or jell up if it cant handle the cold.
