Winchester 1300 problems please help
The pump wants to come down early any advice would be helpful and no I'm not doing anything wrong I have much experience with pump shotguns

Well actually the problem is that when the pump is locked in place sometime it'll unlock and pump your chambered round out which sucks and there's nothing about that problem I can find online

Sounds like it's in the pump lock and unlock button I have had many 1300s em and I.have never heard of one doing that you can buy new trust assembly's for fairly cheap on eBay

The Winchester 1200 and 1300 have what Winchester calls
"Speed Pump" actions---a bit different from most. They
use a rotating bolthead, and when you fire them it's almost like
the pump handle is powered back. Very fast action.

Sounds like the action lock on yours is worn if it won't stay locked
on a loaded/chambered round. I sold my last one a couple of
months ago, but IIRC the action lock is interfaced with the firing mechanism,
and it locks the outer sleeve on the bolt in a forward position.

Drop the trigger group out and look for wear----possible on the
black plate with some slots in it on the bottom of the bolt.

The bolt looks nice I took it apart and cleaned and oiled it thinking that would help its not when it shoots that the pump comes back tho I've actually not shot it last time the bolt was so dirty the firing pin couldn't come out

What would I need to replace if this was worn out?

Masterarchangel 04-21-2013 03:49 PM

It's actually a winchester 120 but it's pretty much the exact thing as a 1300

When you had it apart did you check the mechanism near the trigger that you normally push to release the slide? Anything broken or worn?

Masterarchangel 04-21-2013 04:58 PM

Yea I even playing withit for a moment didn't seem bad I'm no expert but I think it's good

Masterarchangel 04-21-2013 04:58 PM

I found a forum where a guy had a similar problem it turned out his slide release was bent
