    I have a Beretta 303. It will not eject the shell. i have cleaned the gun very good. iv tried multiple different types of shells...winchester, federal, remington.... and so on, and it will still not eject. im thinking about taking it in to get it looked at but i dont want to give up 30 bucks for a small problem. I think something just has to be ajusted in the gun for the ejection but im not sure. if any ideas please comment.

    Zach- Are you using discount shells with steel heads or premium shells with brass heads?

    Assuming it ejected shells well in the past, Have you cleaned the two gas ports in the barrell? Taken a wire brush to both surfaces of the gas relief ports. The spring may be weak and allowing too much gas to escape. Cole sells springs of different strengths.
    After cleaning the gun well I shoot my auto's wet with break free(clp).

    I will assume that you are trying to shoot 2 3/4" shells from a 3" chambered barrel. You can either get a 2 3/4" chambered barrel or open up (I hate seeing this) the gas ports so it will eject the lighter 2 3/4" shells.

    The 303 doesn't have a gas compensation system like the 390 or 391, so the 3" chambered barrel allows much less gas into the cylinder to cycle the action.

    The 303 I had was very touchy on lube, not too little, not too much.

    Is the action opening all the way up and the empty is laying in the open port?

    Or is just opening and closing on the fired shell?
