The mossbergs are a little tricky in the shell stops. Remove the trigger group and shell stops. Clean thoroughly. Dirt between the stop and the receiver can impede smooth movement.

This is why I prefer the Winchester/FN pumps

In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.

Worn? Really!? If they were "worn" out the shells would come out of the tube on their own as in one example above. Remove the stop arms and make sure the slots in the receiver are clean. They need to be fully recessed into the frame when fully cycled for a shell to come out. Are you pulling the slide all the way back? Shells ejecting!? Did you bend the stop arms or lift platform by hand for any reason?

Also, is the magazine follower sticking!? Lube working parts with a very little silicon spray.

Post more pictures. Something does not look right on your first picture. That lever looks like it is not in its proper spot

Practice doesn't make perfect, it make permanent.

When I hear a Liberal say "I can speak for gun owners because I own a shotgun" I just want to scream "Well I can speak for vegetarians because I like lettuce on my cheeseburger!"
