Greetings, Kevin and welcome aboard.

Here's a link to a .pfd file of the Charles Daly semi-auto shotgun manual. Hopefully this will get you on the right track.

Good luck

Michael Kassnar, prez of CD will send you a call tag for the gun and ship it back to you without charge. Go to their web site and contact CD. The gun has a lifetime warranty, free shipping both ways.

Some things to try: If you are using low brass bargain ammo, it might not have enough power to cycle. If the gas system is adjustable check that, read the manual. It might be set for a more powerful round. Drop in some buckshot and see if it works for that. Also might check that the gas system is assembled properly and clean. Finally, check the extractor to see it it's there and functioning.

hard to tell without seeing exactly whats happening. Is the shell moving partially out of the chamber? Not moving at all? Double feeding?

Will it eject by hand? Have you taken it apart to clean, especially the gas system?
Check the gas system out, the o-ring and make sure everything is assembled correctly.
If everything is good call CD and let them know your problem.
Have a nice day!

I second checking the O-ring. Those things are DAMN easy to lose when disassembling the gun. I've used low-brass target loads in my CD, and it's never failed to cycle except with defective shells that kept catching in the ejection port. However, if you leave out the O-ring when reassembling the thing, it won't even try to cycle. Worst comes to worst, you can get a 50 cent replacement at the hardware store.
