    I have been working on this shotgun, replacing some parts and when I took it out to shoot it it fired but the bolt never retracted back. I manually pulled it back but it did not bring the spent shell with it. Any ideas on the cause? I replaced the mag.spring follower, mag tube cap forend and forend cap so the internal parts haven't been changed.

    Semi-Auto? Check if the gas seals are installed correctly (in other words, flip them around). Rem 1100's would have the same problem if their gas seals are not installed correctly.
