    I have a new shooter here who has a Mossberg 5500 semi auto that jams up almost every time. What happens is that if there are 3 or more shells in the gun, 2 shells will want to come out of the magazine and cause a jam up. It's like the magazine latch is letting 2 shells out instead of just one. Everything looks fine with this gun.

    Any ideas??

    Tron,

    you might need to "tweak" the shell latch so it times properly. I'm not too familiar with the 5500 but on the 835s I've need to do this. Just replacing the latch doesn't always work.
