View Full Version : Cartridge stuck in magazine?
09-06-2009, 03:35 PM
While dove hunting in south Texas my SBE II stopped cycling shells from the magazine into the chamber. Even when I manually retract the bolt to unload the gun the shells stay in the magazine. Any help would be appreciated. I dont want to send it back for warranty work if I dont have to. Thanks!

What happens when you press the cartridge release button?
Disassemble, clean, re-assemble and check for function.

When I press the cartridge release button it ejects under the carrier. I can then manually retract the bolt and chamber the round. It is impossible to shoot doubles with this method due to the fact that it will not automatically reload.

As mentioned in your other thread on the same topic, the gun must be fired in order for the second round to be release from the magazine.
The cartridge drop lever is used to manually release a round from the magazine without firing the gun.
You can manually cycle the bolt all day long, and no cartridges will be released from the magazine until you press that lever in.
IF the gun fails to cycle under firing, then you have another problem.
Have you had the gun apart? More to the point, have you had the trigger group out?
