View Full Version : Mossy 500 Ejector?

August 17, 2007, 09:08 PM
I recently got my Mossberg 500 back from Knoxx. I was cycling the action with a shell in the magazine. when a shell is loaded and i cycle the action to eject the ONE shell WITHOUT firing it it doesn't do anything but open the ejector. LEAVING the shell forward in the barrell ready to fire. This does NOT happen to a shell that has another shell waiting behind it. Only when it is a single shell in the barrel. What is wrong with it?

open the action, look for this. there is an extractor which is on the port side and a helper on the right side.
I forgot the corect name for the helper but it puts pressure on the shell that keeps it engaged in the extractor.
if it is broken, there is no pressure and the shell will fall off the extractor.
