The daughter (adult experienced shooter) of one of the guys I shoot league with won a brand new Beretta outlander semi auto last weekend at tha MN state sporting clays shoot. Tonight after we shot trap league she took it out and shot it for the first time to see how it would shoot. Shooting factory trap loads. First shot cycled ok. Second shot empty hung out of receiver. Third shot empty hung out. Fourth shot the action didn't cycle back. She had a hard time getting it open. Fifth shot it didn't open. She could could not get the action open. Her father couldn't get it open. Had to set it butt on the ground and gently push the bolt lever down with his foot to get it to open. Shot a six shot and same thing. Gun went back against the fence. The bolt would move back and forth a little with the expended shell in the chamber. It sounded like some metal piece was keeping the bolt closed. Brand new gun. I let her use my Beretta o/u to finish. No problems there.
