I took my pardner model 12g. single shot to the range and put a shell in it and fired it. I then proceeded to eject the spent shell and it didn't eject. It didn't kick out of the barrel at all. It was like it was stuck in it. I had to pop it out by shoving my cleaning rod down the chamber. I tried it again and the same thing happened. At this point I was highly upset. I came home and tried to research the issue and found out that some people had problems with their guns not ejecting the shell do to what they thought low end shells expand in the chamber not evenly which gets them stuck. Personally, I took the gun apart and the ejector spring had a slight(and I mean slight) bend in it. I feel that maybe if I purchased a new spring for the ejector it may fix the issue. Has anyone had similar problems or any smiths fixed the problems? Thanks in advance.
