take it to a gun smith. you may mess it up trying to fix it yourself.

I have the same problem with my Western Field 12 gauge pump. I can't even get it to accept shells into the magazine. I've recently given it over to a gunsmith. If you want to email me I can let you know what he says...

Do you have to use shells in an airsoft shotgun?

It all depends on the model your looking at. So, to make it simple, elaborate. My pump action M56A uses airsoft shotgun shells, that act as magazines. So in a real shotgun, when the shell of a shotgun is fired, the Shell ejects, and the bb's fire. In an airsoft shotgun, depending upon the model, a shell shotgun fires 1 or 3 bb's, and without ejecting the shell, you pump again, causing more pre-loaded bb's into the chamber. But in some Airsoft shotguns, they use Magazines. You insert the magazine into the underside of the gun, and when you re-pump, bb(s) load into the chamber. That would be the logical answer. You used the word "Have". Do i "have to use shells". There are magazine alternatives, and you can always do it the good old fashion manual loading method. You could "screw" the loading mechanism, and manually force the bb's into the chamber. Not recommended. Any more questions, email me.

Which is better a shotgun or a automatic shotgun?

An automatic shotgun is still a shotgun. Technically they are semi-automatic. A fully automatic 12 gauge, if they exist, would beat the living crap out of you. Autos may be slightly heavier, may jam more often and they lack the intimidation factor you give off while pumping a shotgun in front of an intruder. Of course autos reload faster, they are more expensive and I wouldn't own a pump because of personal preference. Hatsan Arms Company now has A semi Auto Shotgun which has A stop auto load button on the side of the receiver,, this can be used in two ways, 1 it can b a extra safety feature for those guys a little nervous over the next shell auto loading.. and 2 it can be used similar as a pump action when pressed since you have to use the slide to chamber the next shell. look close at this pic in the large view and you will see what i mean (see related link) nice new feature for a shot gun Added: Fully automatic shotguns do exist, though they are a bit of a rarity. One downside of automatic and semi-automatic shotguns is that there several loads which do not generate enough pressure to cycle the weapon - typically, these would be specialised loads, such as riot control rounds. Which is why Franchi developed the SPAS-12, which can be operated as a semi auto or a pump action shotgun.

What does an ejector spring in a shotgun do?

Its quite simple as that it ejects the shotgun shell out of the gun after it has been fired but this depends on the type. A double or single barrel shotgun would only eject the shells when u hit the release mechanism to reveal your side of the barrel then they eject out.On any other type shot gun where u load 8 or have a clip they generally fling out the side when re-cocked or if automatic they do this automatically. Hope i helped

How do you load a mossberg 500 l?

Rack the slide to the rear, and visually inspect the chamber to ensure it's clear. Close the slide, ensure that the safety is engaged. On the bottom of the receiver, there is an opening cut out for the loading of your shotgun shells. Load your shotgun shells into the tubular magazine (located under the barrel) via this opening, with the crimped end (the end without any brass) towards the front. When you've loaded as many rounds as you can load, you can rack the slide one time to chamber the first cartridge, and then load one more into the magazine, if you so wish.

How do you use a boltaction rifle?

I'm not certain what you mean, "how do you use a boltaction", but I'll go with it anyway. Bolt action, simply refers to the mechanism that ejects the old shell and loads a new shell into the chamber. The bolt action is a kind of handle on top of the gun, and when you want to load a shell, and this is assuming it has the capacity for more than one shell, you raise the handle up, and pull it back;this will eject a spent shell if you've already fired it; then push the bolt forward, which loads a new shell. If it's a single shell capacity, or single shot, you'll have to follow the above instructions, but load the shell in manually after you've opened the chamber by pulling back the bolt. Clear as mud.

What does the lever on the side of a JC Higgins Model 20 do?

I believe it is so you can fire it as a one shot it keeps the next shell from coming out of the tube, you can load another shell by hand.... You are absolutely correct! Not all Mod 20's have that selector but that is what it is for. It prevents another shell from loading into the chamber when the action is moved.

What does the switch on the side of a browning a500r do?

This switch operates the Magazine cutoff. The cutoff enables the gun to open the chamber and remove the shell to insert a different shell into the chamber, but it is done while the magazine remains loaded. This way, the chamber can be emptied and the extra shells in the magazine will not automatically load. Recommend you use the link below to the Owners Manual for the A500 model. The Magazine Cutoff operations are shown on pages 29 and 30.
