When a shell falls out of the bottom it is an interrupter issue or a cartridge stop problem.
The interrupter isnt releasing the shell in time or the stop isnt catching the shell after it is released from the interrupter as the bolt is pushed back into battery on the forward stroke.
They usually get reinstalled wrong or they get bent, its an easy fix. Its not a problem with the model, the design is sound.
