Stevens Model 77B problems

I have a Stevens Model 77B in 16 gauge. I've had the gun for sometime now. It use to shoot fine until one day whilst shooting skeet the gun stoped "pumping". I cannot get it to rack. The slide lock release will not work either. The release seems to be engaged as there is not much play in it. I have taken it apart and tried to see what the problem is with no success. Any ideas? Any help would be much appreciated.

Well I figured it out finally. The trigger guard which holds all the little complicated doo dads was worn. The trigger guard appers to be made out of pewter or some poor quality metal. Any how the area where the slide lock rests and moves was worn. This allowed the slide lock to travel further than intended causing the slide lock spring to not catch on the hammer when fired. The gun is only worth 70 bucks or so according to some blue book refrences. So instead of ordering a 50$ part+shipping I just busted out some good ole' JB weld. I actually think that the JB Weld I remolded with is stronger than the factory trigger guard. Any how it functions as it should. We'll see how long my "hillbilly engineering" last though.
