    Franktri. Two things come to mind right away when it comes to cleaning. (1) Be sure to carefully clean the exhaust ports in the bbl (2) The follower tube that goes into the stock can get gummed up. Disassemble, clean, and lube very lightly and then remove most of lube. Most all internal parts should have very little lube remaining when you finish.

    The o-ring and exhaust rings that push against the action bar may need replacing.

    Be sure you are not useing a MAGNUM bbl. The exhaust ports in these barrels are smaller and will often react as you describe.

    Hope this helps a little, Marc

    Is it an 1100 field gun with a 2 3/4" and 3" chamber or just 2 3/4"? Is it new out of the box? O-ring in? Piston not in backwards? If heavily used are you on the original action spring? It's not a 1100 Magnum is it? Just a few questions.

    In that the gun functions properly with 3 dram loads there is something dragging or there is not sufficient gas pressure transferred to the action bar. Try a new O-ring first. After that try new piston rings and stagger the slots in the rings (180 degrees apart). Be sure to get them in the right order. The champherred surfaces fit against each other with the flat side of the rear ring against the action bar. A weak follower spring should not cause the problem you describe but if the tube is dirty/gummy it will. Whatever the problem it should be an easy inexpensive fix. If you have access to another gun you could try swapping parts one at a time until you find the problem.

    Do you regularly clean the gas ports using the recommended drill bit size? I forget the exact number but it is not one of the sizes normally stocked in your corner hardware store. I have seen on at least two occasions where a chunk of lead, presumably from a bb that ended up between the wad petal and the barrel had ended up in the gas port hole. Just trying to use a pipe cleaner or such does not dislodge the plug. It make take a fair amount of force to push the lead, and the plastic and carbon, out of the hole.
