Ah well, I dont like gravy so thats why I dont get the plaster. I have found however that whenever I eat them I get constipated.
I guess that is what is causing that.

Hoadie I just recently had a winchester shot gun brought into my shop for me to see if I could fix it... The ole boy bought it from his friend for $40.00 Mark brought it to me since its His long time Bud and asked if I would fix it for him.  after cleening it and Man it was dirty... looked like some one drug it through the swamp and accross the yard after . it was a mess.
I got a few parts that were missing or broke and reasembled the Gun along with some help from CM and it would not shoot or eject. I disasemble it and started all over again .. nothing
I called Mark and told him to come get the Gun ... Its put back together and ready to beat up against a treee.
I then did some digging on the ole girl talked to one guy that said he has to clean his at about every 150 200 rounds or it starts acting up...
I personally didnt like it. I used to grip about my Remy 1100 .. Now Im happy to have her. but would take a Mossberg any day....

Rhino I have a Model 1400 MKII just like the one you and I attempted to restore that afternoon. I have NEVER had NO trouble from mine and would buy another if I could. Now a remington 1100 I would not use as a boat anchor they are junk O-rings gas system and they do not like cold weather and have to clean after every shot, as far as that goes you have to clean after every shot and in between shots. Also the auto loading 7400 series rifles would make good boat anchors as well

You want a decent semi auto shotgun ?? Try a Beretta 303 semi. Lad has 1 it's never missed a beat in the 4 years he's had it. Got it second hand for his 14th birthday. Been dragged through ditches rough shoots clay shoots you name it it's done it.

I got the same Semi Winchester as Cookie-he's seen it/worked on it.I dunno why mine fouls out so quickly & his dont.(finicky critters I guess).After taking it to Cookies I cleaned it @ home & took it upp to cabin for some traps.Started to act up on the 15th round..& by 25 it was completly inoperable(never used to be like that).So now we gotta take it down fer cleaning a couple X per day if we wanna use it.

On the Winchester 1400's there is two gas holes that stop up. remove the barrel and there inside the ring on the barrel side. Cheap discount ammo will foul one out. It is normal cleaning porcedure for that shotgun. Just like any other firearm it should be cleaned and oil after each use.

Well,I guess Winchester,Federal & Remington trap loads are all "discount" stuff then.
Kinda like a sophisticated aircraft...spends more time w/maintainance than actual use!!

Clean the gas ports with a PIPE cleaner soaked in barrel cleaner. Betcha if my lad had hold of it and cleaned it you wouldn't get the stoppages you do get. 1 other thing do you use fibre wad or plas wad cartridges? Plaswads can shave bits of plastic off when they pass the gas ports that can cause blockages.

Hoadie you bring a non-functioning shotgun to the meet and greet. I break it down and do a complete cleaning, By the way was in severe need of, and if works flawlessly for several months, you attempt to clean it and it begins to malfunction. When I come up this fall to hunt with you I will again disable and clean your shot gun and return it to service. And by the way Hoadie, That is part of it, "You use it you clean it". That is the Responsibility of owning and using a firearm. It is a mechanical device and requires routine maintenance. There are two types of maintenance. Scheduled and Emergency.

Routine or schedule maintenance is always the best. You choose the time and place to take a given piece of equipment out of service. For example you shoot a firearm. It is time to schedule a routine maintenance.

 

Emergency maintenance not good. This is when a piece of equipment is neglected and or improperly maintained dictates the time and place it will be serviced. And it always will be at a time or place that is very inconvenient.

  Ok! 1 make sure the toothbrush has bristles   Big%20smile, 2 read my posting again! Plaswads do shave off on the gas ports and bits DO get stuck ergo it malfunctions.Dead
