It's fixed.

That's no problem for me. I'm not coming to win anything, just have fun and learn.

I looked up a little info on the gun. Its a New Haven 600AT. They are Mossberg 500s that were mostly sold through Sears, Montgomery Ward, and Western Auto. They use most, if not all of the same parts.

I think the problem it the ejector, not the extractor. It has no problem removing the shells from the chamber.

edit: Checked it again. Definitely the ejector. it easily pulls the shell out of the chamber. I very slowly pulled the pump back, and the shell just barely tumbled over the side when it was ejected.

It seems that this is a somewhat common problem, but an easy fix. I just need to replace it, and I'm good to go.

I oiled up a peace of really fine steel wool, and rubbed an area to see how it would clean up. It removed about 90% of the rust in just a few seconds, and left the bluing looking really nice. I think she'll clean up nicely.

Here a pic. Sorry its a little crummy. I have bad luck with taking pics of rifles and shotguns for some reason.

Thanks, already do.

Just finished giving her a quick cleaning with the steel wool and oil. I got about 95% of the rust off (I'll get the rest later).

The bluing is about 75%-85% good. A little touch up bluing and she'll be good.

Random question. What did Mossberg use to finish their receivers? It's a really glossy black. Is it just paint?

I think it's something similar to powder coat, but I never looked into it. I'm pretty positive it's not simply blued.

I think Mossberg uses aluminum for their receivers, so it's definitely not blued.

The powder coat sounds about right. Whatever's on there, it looks tough. There are a few wear through spots, but the rest is in pretty good condition.

Fixed, modified. I can live with that though. The way it goes in regards to spread is IC>Mod>Full right?

yeah, youll only be good to about 35yds.
its all the same spread bascially, just at different distances. youre trying to throw a 30" circle of lead on the bird when it contacts it.
you can borrow my range gun for the other events. therell be plenty others laying around from other shooters as well.

some shots are 50yds +. 1/2 a football field.
serious...for the money you saved, you should shop for a fixed full vr bbl for it.
a good deal would be 50 bucks and youd be set. just make sure no one bored it out!
