    Am trying to reasssemble my grandson's 11-87 L/H, (I got it back in a bag of parts) and have come up with a problem I haven't encountered before. The silver release pad that releases the tongue which allows you to insert a second shell in the magazine tube is jammed. I can't get the tongue to release. Any suggestions?

    Did you take it back out and reinstall it?

    It was out of the action when I got it back. Trigger group and gas seals were in a plastic bag. The latch is jammed whether in or out of the receiver

    THE PLUNGER AND SPRING MAY BE JAMMED/CORRODED OR OVER EXTENDED. TRY REMOIL AND A SMALL SCREWDRIVER TO WORK IT IN AND OUT OF ITS BORE.

    FWIW, my S-I_L, who is not really a gun guy, but is very mechanically-minded, picked up the trigger, stared at it, turned it over several times, and pushed and pribed, and suddenly, it worked, His answer "I have no idea what I did". Anyway, the gun is now on its way to the range tomorrow.
