    I have a Smith and Wesson Model 1000 12g shotgun. This was passed down to me by my grandpa. When i shoot it, the slide doesnt recoil enough to launch the shell out of the gun. I have to manually pull the slide, and remove the shell.

    If memory serves me well, it did this a few years ago, and all it needed was a good cleaning. Well the cleaning didnt do anything.

    Does anyone have any ideas, its not making any sense to me.

    See if you can get an exploded parts drawing from Browning, or try www.Brownells.com for a parts drawing. Your shotgun may use O-rings on the gas piston which need to be replaced after a while. You might need to buy some new o-rings and install them, or take it to your gunsmith and have him do it.

    Your gas port could have some obstruction. You should be able to see it in the barrell. It'll be a little bitty hole that vents gas to the piston. I'd start there.

    I had a Savage 720 that wouldn't cycle. Turns out I was just "limp wristing" it. With a hard hold it cycles fine. Dunno if that helps........

    This was basicly the problem. The piston was not aligned with the hole in the barrel. Lined it up and shell shot right out.

    I've heard of limp-wristing an autoloading pistol, but not a shotgun! :doah:

    Eh, I may be just imagining it, but it seems if any of the recoil is soaked up by moving the actual shotgun, it wouldn't cycle as well.... maybe?
