Exactly what does it do? The bolt doesn't move at all? It moves, but not
far enough to eject the empty? It ejects the empty but doesn't load
a new round?
Agreed--try it with some magnum shotshells--but it should be possible
to make it work with standard field loads.
It is a sears 66m 12ga 583.607. Even with 3"magnum turkey loads it will not cycle the bolt. I have tracked down a manual for a JC Higgens model 60 and it shows no o-rings. While I know it is not the correct manual it seems to be close. I think I might try and break it down to check the gas vents and see if one or two of the 3 might be plugged and I am not seeing it. To be honest I am not sure how to do that. I guess I will just fumble and figure it out. Thanx again guys for all the input!!!
