Help with my Winchester 1300!

I just acquired a used winchester 1300 28" barrel. shot it for the first time yesterday and after about 10 shots the vent rib on the barrel started to slide forward. it was about 1.5" in front of the barrel. i know winchester has a floating vent rib, but this isn't normal is it?? should I just have a local gunsmith look at it or is it something i could fix myself??? Thanks for any help ya'll can give.

That is weird. Never happened to me. I think you should have a gunsmith, or at least a knowledgable friend look at it, and tell you what is going on.
The test of character is not 'hanging in' when you expect light at the end of the tunnel, but performance of duty, and persistence of example when you know no light is coming.
