Question about Optics

1 Answer

I have an old Mossberg Model 188ke 410 shotgun the problem is that sometimes it fire's and sometimes it doesn't. When I eject the shell and look at it there is always a dent in the primer but it did not fire this happens a lot. I want to keep the shotgun for my grandson. It needs to be brought back up to par. At present I am soaking the bolt in solvent cleaner to see if it helps. Like I say it does fire sometimes.. I could really use some sound advice..Thanks

It sound like the firing pin spring has become weak. The simple way to fix it is to replace it, but if you are a handy man, you can remove it and re set it. The down side to this is that it will not last as long as a new part because it has already been weakened (a sort of metal fatigue). I have a similar problem with a very old Anshutz rifle. But sourcing the part is next to impossible. A Gunsmith could make a new spring.

Anything you can tell me about Winchester Model 97 Ser# 201413. when it was made and value.


The Winchester Model 1897 evolved from the Winchester Model 1893. The Model 1897 and 1893 were both designed by John Browning. The Model 1897 is an external hammer shotgun lacking a trigger disconnector. This means that the user can hold the trigger down while cycling the shotgun and once the action is returned to battery the gun fires. The gun itself is classified as a slide action pump shotgun. It was the first truly successful pump-action shotgun produced. Throughout the time period the Model 1897 was in production, over a million of the type were produced in various grades and barrel lengths. 16-gauge guns had a standard barrel length of 28 inches, while 12-gauge guns were furnished with 30-inch length barrels. Special length barrels could be ordered in lengths as short as 20 inches, and as long as 36 inches. Along with various grades and barrel lengths, the Model 1897 came in two different chamberings. One was the 12 gauge and the other was the 16 gauge. The shells should be of the 2-¾ inch or 2-? inch model. Any shells larger are not recommended. An average Model 1897 held 5 shotgun shells in the magazine tube. After including the one shell that could be held in the chamber, the average Model 1897 held a total of 6 shotgun shells. However, this would vary from grade to grade. When working the action of the Model 1897 the forend (fore grip) is pulled back, forcing the breech bolt to the rear which extracts and then ejects the spent shell while simultaneously cocking the external hammer by pushing it to the rear. When the forend is slid forward again, the breech bolt pushes a fresh shell into the gun's chamber and locks into place. This action of sliding the forend back and forth (pumping) is why the gun is classified as a slide action (or pump) gun.

My shotgun is not ejecting the shell-


If what you are saying the empty Shell is still in the open ejection area and another is trying to push in..if so your ejected is either worn or has gunk built up around it or your chamber is dirty and causing the just fired shell to stick momentarily...try firing and eject an empty shell without another feeding in and see if it clearly and quickly ejects the empty..if not it is the ejector or dirty chamber the new steel is spring fed so it should not be the poblem ..you can try another spring and see what happens. My bet is a worn or dirty ejector..or a long shot it may be the shells expanding too much do to age damp etc try different ones..good luck..

Mossberg 500, shell will not eject


did you check the elevator to make sure its not applying the pressure on the cartridge interrupter and cartridge stop? or that one or both aren't damaged and over bent. the ejector slot on the bolt isn't damaged, or the action slide bars.

My Mossberg 500 12 gauge shotgun double feeds cartridges and jams


There should be a catch on the magazine tube of the shotgun, is it ejecting two shells into the chamber when you try to cycle the action? If so check to see that the catch is not damaged. I have the same shotgun and I can take a look at it when I get home.

What is the difference between a Mossberg 500 and a Mossberg 535 max 4.


The 535 is simply a slightly stretched model 500. It can chamber and fire 3.5" shells where the 500 will only handle up to 3" shells. The guns are identical in function and pretty much identical in parts except the stretched bits.

How do you load a 12 gauge pump action Mossberg (500)? There is no magazine for it, but, is mag ready. How do you manually load?


The loading port is on the bottom of the reciever. You mention that it is "magazine ready"? Mossberg shotguns have a tublular magazine underneath the barrel, surrounded by the action bar and front grip.

Loading the magazine entails holding the shotgun in one hand, taking the shell in the other with the folded end facing the front end of the barrel. Place the shell in the magazine opening (on the bottom) and push it up with your fingers and forward with the thumb of the same hand. It will go completely forward of the silver/blue lifter and stay there when you let go. (the action must be closed to load the magazine).

Alternately, you can open the action and pop a shell into the ejection port on the right side, close it back up, and shoot!

Hello, does the mosberg 1000 super 12 semiauto shotgun shot both 2 3/4 and 3 inch shells ? It show that it is chambered for 3".


A shotgun will shoot anything shorter than the max length specified. The only problem you may have is lightly loaded smaller shells may not cycle your gun. Most 3" magnum semi autos will cycle 2 3/4 inch shells just fine.
