Once shell is chambered, it is sometimes very difficult to unload the gun. The shell seems to get stuck in the chamber not allowing the bolt to be cycled. I'm using new estate shells. Does anyone know if it is possible and how one could polish the chamber so that the shells don't get stuck? The gun fires and cycles fine. Problem only exists when trying to unload manually. I had a previous post on the matter and appreciate all the advice and have found this to be the problem. Thanks, Jason

Before I got to aggresive, I would use a chamber brush and clean Chamber, And try some Remington ammo. Take barrel off of gun,clean it and test different ammo in barrel only. Might get a better feel of your actual problem. Good Luck.

Take the barrel off and drop a loaded shell into the chamber. It should go in freely and drop out the same. If it does then forget about the chamber and go to the locking mechanism on the bolt. Make sure the bolt handle slides freely in the slot on the bolt and when you pull it to the rear the locking bolt dros down. If this is not happening then look for grit between the locking botl and the bolt body.

had the same problem with my 1100 and 391 using reloaded hulls that have the steel base like estates and federals. what i did was to clean the chamber with a brush to get rid of any plastic build up, and then used a bore mop on a cleaning rod attached to a drill to polish the chamber with FLITZ. this worked for me.

I bought the gun used. I suspect this problem may have been there all along. I have only fired 50 shells through it. However, the gun is in superb condition. When I push a shell in the chamber, it goes in fine, but the last 1/16th of an inch seems to bind. As I continue to add pressure it will seat with an audible clicking sound and then it is stuck. I'm sure if the gun had a second extractor opposite the stock one that the shell would pull out just fine. Is it possible that a gun may not be able to run certain brands of ammo and function flawlessly with others? Is this an ammo and not a gun problem? Thanks for your replies. Jason
