Problem with a model 31 pump

Post by sxsman1 » Mon Dec 16, 2019 3:56 pm

I have a 16 gauge model 31 pump that drops a loaded shell out of the bottom when I pump it.
This only happens when I'm on the range shooting. I try it when I'm home with dummy shells and it works perfectly every time. I try it by pumping slowly and fast with the gun tipped at an angle and it works perfectly. At the skeet field it drops a shell every time.
Does anyone have any Ideas?
Thanks, Pete

When you say "dummy " shells, do they have the same weight and weight distribution as a live round? Or are you using snap caps?

Yes, they are the same weight as my reloads, I loaded them with spent primers and sugar instead of powder with 1 oz. of lead.
