It performed really really well. At the end of they day my buddy had a mixed bag of shotgun shells that we ran through and I did have a failure. And let me tell you, clearing a failure in this shotgun is not like a glock lol. So as most of us know, there is no side eject port on these badboys. What had happened was my friend had shot, went to eject, and the shell in the chamber didn't come out. It kind of ripped instead which allowed the bolt to come back and the lifter to attempt to get another round in the what was now blocked chamber. Y'all see how this got real sticky really fast? LOL so ultimately, I ended up sort of prying the old shell out. (didn't take much effort), cutting the metal part off with a knife I had and then cutting the shell as much as i could and pulling it out with pliers. This took some time, and could certainly be a life ending malfunction if it occurred in a firefight. Anyone know of a better way to clear this? Does the lifter have an easy way to be pulled out? I forgot to mention that the shells we were shooting at that time wee OLD. I mean really OLD from companies i never knew existed. So I dont think the malfunction was the fault of the shotgun.
