Here's the before and after, and I have successfully racked all the mag tube's shells in and out of the chamber since the "tweak", I hate these kind of experiences yet I don't because I learned most of this gun in 5 minutes and knowledge is power.

More than likely the tab that fits in the hole in the side of the receiver was probably not actually indeed properly. When you described hard cycling it was probably binding at that time and then being made worse.

That looks like it is sitting just as it should now.

My opinion of Mossberg as a company just went up 10 fold.I sent an e-mail to them before I went to bed about the interrupter and when I woke up in the morning (Saturday no less) I received an e-mail back stating this "Thank you for your e-mail. Sir I will send you this interrupter and also the cartridge stop so you can replace and hope this will solve the problem , Please give it about 7-15 business days for delivery. Thank you."

Quick question! Did your new mossberg have this weird square etched into the receiver like mine? Its mot really noticable until you hold it to the light just right

Also if you have the 28 inch ribbed barrel can you see the weld marks through the barrel?

These are the ribs, its pinned to the barrel it can be seen when looking down the barrel

I haven't noticed any square like that on it or any weld marks,It came with only the 18" barrel, the only blemish is a small scrape near the scope mount holes on the receiver, it was new but the display model and last one in stock so who knows what someone did while looking at it.
