This rifle has not be used much. Maybe 500 rounds. Problem is it does not eject the casing fired or unfired. It pulls it from the firing chamber but does not throw it out in every case. .

could be faulty shell casings
take it to a gunsmith and discuss the fault with him as he will be seeing this problem on a regular basis

Whyis the bolt hard to close ?

If it shuts OK with a empty chamber check the cartridge overall length spec's for your weapon then measure the rounds you are using
Also inspect the chamber for damage or something causing the
Round to not fully chamber
If it is the bolt look at the locking luggs and where they lock into the chamber
Or go to a competent gunsmith to inspect the bolt and chamber lock up

Marlin rifle model 795 jams intermittently

It takes about 250 rounds to break in a gun. Try some hotter ammo and see if the problem disappears, if so, call Marlin and ask them for their solution if you want to keep using Federal, you might want to try some Remington standard velocity target, it is very accurate in most guns.
I would shoot it for at least 500 rounds and clean it from powder debris in chamber and receiver bolt and trigger group and try it again, however don't hesitate to get a hold of Marlin, they are nice folks.

I have a Fabarm 12 Gauge Ducks Unlimited Shotgun that is brand new. I need a manual to see if there is a way to keep the chamber open and also how to eject the shells not fired.

To keep the bolt open you have to push the loading port toward the rear of the gun. you will hear a click if you've done it correctly. Now when you pull the bolt back it will stay in place. Hope this helps!

I have two sks, one is norinco and the other one is russian. The chinese type can fire only 123gr of ammo but if I use 127 gr., it won't eject the shell out of the chamber. I don't have that problem with...

I don't understand that one but, I would have to guess that the gas tube is leaking? Or clogged, Most of those guns are made to shoot and cycle no matter what. And the difference between 2 bullets of almost the same weight shouldn't mean nothing. I know the russian is a better gun, But,,, You must have a leak, or the piston is letting gas by. One way to find out is wrap the whole handguard from the bolt handle to the front sight, especially the gas tube, fire it and see if it gets a black spot somewhere along the line, If so, you found a leak, If not, I would have to look at it to tell. I had an L1A1 that did the same thing and I traced it back to the adj. Had to seal it up tight or it wouldn't eject a spent round.

I have a ithaca model 49 lever action single shot and it wont eject shells after firing it but it will eject it if i dont fire it,in other words it will eject a live round but not a spent one

there is a lever under the barrel and it is probably worn beyond function or broken off all you need to do is disassemble the gun and replace it. ( get yourself some good brass punches)

New 870 express is not cycling low base shells properly

When it stove pipes, does the empty get caught by the next live round coming up on the carrier?

Try firing one round in the chamber and none in the mag and pump like normal.

If it fires and ejects the empty with no ammo in the mag the ejection system is probably fine.

If when you shoot with one in the chamber one in the magazine and it stove pipes you may have a timing problem. The cartridge stop is letting the next shell come into position and start coming up on the carrier to early. This may be fixed by moving the ramp on the action bar so as to get ejection farther along before the next shell is released to the carrier.

Caution, if the cartridge stops are ok and the carrier is coming up to early it is another issue altogether and needs to be looked at by a smith.

The Bolt will not stay back after last shell is fired from mag.

Try putting the original magazine back in.The tapco mag probably does not have the vertical extension that holds the bolt open.Compare the two mags side by side.Good Luck
