I have but one shotgun, a 1952 Winchester Model 12 12ga, that has had the barrel cut to 20" (basically dimensionally the same as the Riot Gun). Lately, it is beginning to balk on its ejection, and I'm thinking some springs could be replaced, and maybe a good gunsmith should go over it, and tune it a bit, as he might see fit to do. Does anyone have a favorite shotgun 'smith that works on and knows Models 12's well?

sounds like a worn ejector.
not a tough job even though you want to be careful with arguably the finest pump shotgun ever made
