    When I only had one Winchester 1300, I figured the squeaky magazine spring was an anomaly. I lubed it up nicely, but just couldn't get it to load quietly. Now that I have added a second 1300 to my collection, it has the same squeak.

    Any suggestions? (Besides trading them in for 870s :) )

    Try a thin coat of grease on the spring.

    One complaint from new AR-15 rifle owners is the squeaky recoil spring.
    A coat of grease "fixes" that, and the same thing works in shotguns.

    Peanut butter and cheese on top of the shell-lifter, to attract the beastie out of there?
