Ejection system for mossberg shotgun.

Hi everybody!
I have a new invention about pump / lever actions. The invention minimizes feeding problems. How is it working? With a second nail (such as mossbergs) placed on the gun bolt, the springs and levers system is able to ejection with zero percent error. I have a drawing about it. What are your thoughts? Does it work?

George, do you have a failure to feed problem with your pump gun?

I don’t think I have ever heard of that, other than when using the teeny tiny Aguila Mini Shells without their adapter.

Anyways, your part looks easy to make. So make it, install it, and get back to us after a thousand rounds.

My pump action shotgun was made in 1946 and hasn’t failed to feed yet.

All of my Mossberg shotguns feed and eject just fine as long as the action is fully cycled. Short stroke it and it can cause problems...

Shouldn’t this be in the shotgun forum?

Why don't you post these ideas in the shotgun or smithing forums? You keep posting on the rifle pages.

In focus images would be nice as well.

I can think of a lot more practical ideas than an "improvement" to a model that has sold over 11 million copies with no widespread issues.
What could have happened... did.

I do not trust Remington's dating service accuracy. If they were, you could end up with Nancy Pelosi.

Suggest you make a model and test it. If it works, patent it. Then see if Mossberg will buy it or at least give you a job as a designer.
