I keep my M500 4 in the mag one in the chamber but I would like to alternate. Thanks-home defense both 18" bbl pistol grip on 88 collapsible stock on USMC 500 thanks again all!
It sounds like the cartridge stop or cartridge interrupter is broken (parts 22 and 23 in the owners manual) If the carriage is coming down to catch the shells there is no way they can fall through the bottom of the receiver.
