Escort Shot Gun Question

I went duck hunting and fired my gun and the 1st shell did not go off, however, the 2nd and 3rd went off just fine. Then the next night, I went fox hunting and the 1st shell went off, and when the gun chambered the 2nd shell, it also went off.
Any ideas on what could be happening and does anyone know of any gunsmith in the area?

thanks

Re: Escort Shot Gun Question

Did you thouroughly CLEAN it when you bought it? Could be that or you have a SERIOUS mechanical issue ani I WOULD NOT take that gun out in the field again until you get it looked at by a gun smith!! Just asking for a firearms related hunting accident! If your getting slam fires and the trigger was never touched that is usually a problem with the sear and needs to be taken care of asap before you do have an accident.

Re: Escort Shot Gun Question

I wouldn't use it again till fixed. I don't know where you live or what type of shot gun you are referencing. All I know are they a cheap Chinese made guns. Nothing against cheap chinese guns as I've known a few people that love them. What I'm saying it may be very hard to get parts to fix it. They are not meant to be repaired only replaced.

Do yourself a favor....Get it fixed, and trade it on a Mossberg. Still a cheap gun. Not much more money than the Escort. WAY better of a gun.

Re: Escort Shot Gun Question

It sounds like you have a broken firing pin and it was jammed forward when you chambered the second round while fox hunting. Being jammed protruding out it hit the primer of the second round and set it off as soon as the gun went into battery.

As the guys said don't use the gun until you have the problem identified and corrected.

Re: Escort Shot Gun Question

Escort shotguns are made in Turkey by Hatsan. Think you're getting them confused with the other H&R import shotgun, the Pardner. Those things are made in China and as much as it pains me to say this they have a reputation as robust, reliable shotguns and believe it or not are virtual 870 clones but their receivers are made from a big piece of machined steel and they even interchange some aftermarket parts made for the 870.

You just went from a Yugo to a Benz. Good move.

Yugo to a mazarati ids more like it! Good choice! The escort isn't even in the same ballpark as the SBE II. I have about 3000 rounds through mine without a single malfunction.
