winchester 1300 wont cycle
Hi all, new member here. I have a winchester 1300 12g. I can chamber the first round and it fires fine, but the slide jams and I cant pull it back to eject the shell. Not sure if the problem is with the bolt or the slide itself. It kind of looks like the notches on the bolt which hold the slide in place are a little worn. Should I buy a new bolt, slide or both?

Does it cycle live ammo OK? If so, it is probably related to the chamber. A rusty or pitted chamber will not release the fired hull like it should. Does it do this with all ammo or just the "hot" stuff?

It cycles ammo just fine, until I actually fire a round then wont cycle. The chamber is in good condition, no pitting or rust.

robocop10mm is likely correct. Take the barrel off and feel the chamber. It should be perfectly smooth. Any bumps or roughness will cause hard extraction.
