Re: Mossberg 500 Eject Problem
How similar is the Mass. 500 to the Maverick(made by Mossberg) 88. Two of mu hunting buddies use Mav. 88s and one of them has problems. The extractor doesn't grab the fired shell and extract it from the chamber, you have to try several times and really slam the slide forward to grab the shell. Is that what you're talking about? It seems only to happen when we're shooting a lot, like shooting clays, no hiccups while hunting. Maybe it only happens when the metal walls of the chamber heat up ad expand, grabbing the shell thighter.
I'm kind of confused by the problem as well,as having both apart side by side, the extractor in his 88 seems a lot more rubust and positive than that in my Win. 1300.
