  1. Recently my Stoeger M3000 has been failing to fire the round in the chamber. The hammer drops, but nothing happens. I eject the shell and the primer hasn't been touched. This problem is intermittent. Usually occurring once every 25 rounds. It has always occurred on my first shot except for once when it occurred on the second. I have disassembled, cleaned, and reassembled the bolt, firing pin and trigger group. Nothing looks broken, stressed, or out of place. I've been shooting factory loads, federal field and target multi purpose load to be exact. If anyone has any knowledge on what is causing this to happen I would love to know because it has befuddled me, but I am new to shotguns. I've really gotten frustrated with this occurring during 5 stand rounds and appreciate any help and advice.
  2. Today I cycled rounds through the shotgun manually to see if it wasn't going into battery. This doesn't seem to be the problem although I wasn't able to fire it and see because I was in my house. On one occasion though I dropped the bolt and the cartridge drop lever did not pop out like it should. I'm wondering if this could be what's happening. From what I understand when it pops out you know the hammer is fully cocked and ready to fly. I then slightly pressed on the carrier and it popped out, so it was catching for some reason. I'll have to pay attention to this and check the cartridge drop before I yell pull next weekend.
  3. No I knew I wasn't buying a browning or beretta, this is my first shotgun though and was in my price range.

The m3000 is an inertia driven gun similar to the Benelli's of the same mechanism if you aren't familiar with the m3000 specifically.
