    I recently purchased above shotgun at an auction. I shot it today and the ejection piece doesn't work when a shell is in it. When it's empty the ejector works when opened, but the shell gets stuck after it's been fired. Any help would be appreciated John..

    First of all make sure everything is cleaned and lubed. If that does not do it, I would suspect a weak ejector spring.

    You are fast. You replied before I edited my post to add the comment on the spring.

    Is that something I could fix or I need to take it to a smith?

    Are you sure that the model is an 88?
