DavidMoody, Gunnut was refering to the shotgun in the Original Post, of the thread about the model 42. Your shotgun is not a model 42. If I recall you thought it may be a Harrington and Richards single shot or maybe a Winchester. You should be able to find some info stamped into the steel around the chamber and from beneathed the barrel when you remove the barrel.

Pics will help,David.

Chances are there's gunk in the area where the ejector sits. Flood it with gun scrubber, blow it out with canned air, and relube lightly with a spray like Rem Oil.
