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...

how to load shotgun?

Loading a pump-action shotgun is fairly simple. Open the action and hold the stock underneath your arm. Pop a shell into the action, then close the action to load your chamber. To load the magazine tube, take the next shell and push it into the action, then pin it in place using your index finger.

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.
