    I have a failure to feed on my Winchester 1897 Takedown pump

    The round goes sideways slightly instead of straight into the chamber. Is there supposed to be some sort of guard that slides up to prevent this from happening?

    I see there is a thin steel fence/blade that slides up and down that would seem to fit this function but it does not slide upwards. Just seems to slip up and down.

    Thanks for any help
