How is it jamming? Fail to feed? Stove pipe? Need more details. Are you using cheap ammo?

Is your extractor broken or the spring weak?

I have one and it does NOT work well with Herter's bullets. It jammed almost every time I tried to shoot it. I switched to Remington and I have not had any problems.

Sorry we have some of our other firearms in the pic too. My .380 is right next to the .410 shotgun.

Normally, if not the mag, and the extractor is functioning correctly, it is the ammo.

I haven't had any problems with mine.
