Re: Tristar 12ga semi shell cycling???
What might cause my TriStar Shotgun to have cycling issues?
There are many reasons why a gun might have trouble cycling shells. First, make sure you have thoroughly cleaned your shotgun. Use good synthetic gun oil to clean and avoid using compounds such as WD-40, as this congeals and causes more harm than good. Second, make sure that your O-ring is in the correct place (see manual or call TriStar Customer Service). Third, a shotgun has many moving parts, when it is new it can be tight, sometimes just running a few heavy rounds though it will loosen it up and work out the problem. Fourth, not all ammo is created equal. There are a few light target loads on the market that do not function very well in any semi-automatic (some of these loads will say this directly on the box of shells).
Don't Tread On Me is what it says and I'll take that to my grave.
