    Had a nearly new skb to quit firing the bottom barrel today, any ideas?? we tried everything short of taking it apart.. open it, switch the selector, close,it, smack the butt, and so on.. the top barrel will fire fine, it did this earlier in the season but fixed its self..thanks!

    Remove the stock and clean the action out. They are usually full of grease and sawdust. Clean with some gunscrubber or similar product and lightly oil. A can of compressed air is nice to have on hand to blow the action out.

    I had the same problem, the Top Barrel will fire but the bottom would not. This occurred after about 8000 rounds. I sent it back to SKB in Omaha, and they fixed the problem for me. In my case, I was charged a small fee for parts (less than $75.00) and got the gun back in 2 weeks. I am happy with the trap gun, and happy with the prompt service.
