Mossberg 500 not loading shells
 
Ok so my mossberg 500 is no longer loading the shells from the tube to the action. There is a lever or steel rod that is pushed in by what I will guess is the feed ramp. Once that lever is pushed in, the shell pops out into the feed ramp, then into the action, then into the barrel as you rack the slide. Why isn't it poping out of the mag tube into the feed ramp??

IIRC in the 870 the mechanism that pushes the shell stop out of the way is in the trigger group. Check yours? I don't own a 500.

Failure to feed I guess

This may sound kinda dumb, but here goes. Are the two levers that sit in the side grooves inside the receiver in the right grooves? Or could one be slightly bent? Try field stripping the shotgun and reassembling it again. One of the shell blocking bars may not be seated right. Had it happen with the wife's 500 a few months ago. Hope this helps.

The left & right shell stops are what hold the new shell in the action tube
until cycled by the action slide. I have seen the contact surfaces on the stops and the
action tube wear and cause this problem.

watch the stops for movement as you cycle the action. you may have to replace both
the stops and action tube to reliably fix the problem

Those wore out on mine only instead of feeding problems I had shells dropping out at my feet when I pulled the trigger. I was able to put a lil more bend to em and its working fine, I should probably pick up a spare set though...can you recommend any sites to order from?
