I just acquired a Browning M 80 12 gauge, semi-auto shotgun. Is there a trick to get shells from the mag to the action? I tried to load the gun, but shells will not cycle from the tube mag to the action. Help!
Yes, I cant get the bolt to go any further back. There is a button on the side of the action that releases the "clip" that holds the first shell in the tube mag. But it will not release the shell unless I take the pressure off it by sliding the shell up, away from the "clip". It almost seems like the spring in the tube is too strong.pappybear said:When you're cycling the bolt manually, are you pulling it all the way back as far as it will go? It won't release the shell in the magazine until the bolt is fully rearward.
