A Model 240 is a semi auto. I've never seen one in person but from the looks of the photos, that magazine it will hold more then 2 rounds. I suspect it's been "plugged" if that's all the shells you can get into it. (or something's wrong with the magazine) When hunting migratory waterfoul in the US, your shotgun must be capable of holding no more than three shells. The end of the magazine should unscrew and if you open it you should find a spring and a wooden rod. Leave the rod out when you put it back together and you should be able to load four or five shells in the magazine to hunt upland game. But remember to put it back before duck season.
