    Dear fellow shotgunners, I have an 11-87 super magnum that is giving me problems and I was hoping for some input. It shoots fine sometimes, but then all of a sudden it will jam open, halfway through its cycle, with a live shell on its way into the chamber. It will not remain open, but will finish the cycle after a 1/2 second delay. Sometimes it fires without jamming, but cycles slowly. Any answers or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks, Mike.

    sounds like maybe the action return spring is hanging up. can you feel any drag in spots when you work the action by hand? Maybe something is floating around in there. Have you stripped the action down and cleaned it?
