    Im having a problem with an old shotgun of my dads. I can pull the slide back and get the firing pin to fall once but that's it.

    Could be all gummed up around the firing pin. Maybe a good cleaning will resolve this.

    Is it firing the round, extracting, ejecting, and feeding the next round ok? All of that has to happen, as well as resetting the hammer if you are going to get another shot after that.

    The hammer wasn't resetting. I fixed it. Thanks everyone for your help. The spring for the slide was backwards so it wasn't allowing the slide to come all the way back.

    Ok well I might need a little more help. I cleaned the slide spring as well as the bolt and supports, hangers, lugs whatever you call em.
    The problem is in the trigger assembly. I noticed the sear gets pushed down by force of the clambering or the shells going off.
    Anyways when the sear goes down it doesn't mate with the hammer. I was able to manipulate the sear moving down and up with ascrewdriver behind it. I took the whole assembly apart and I didn't see any slack in the sear mount and the spring looked good. I think I might be missing a part that may go behind it. Problem is every pic off the internet of this gun assembly sucks. Blurry as hell
