mossberg 930 issues

my mossy 930 failed me today. after firing the shell, the round was stuck in the barrel. After it happened once, I was able to disassemble and pry the empty hull out. Fire two more rounds then it happened again - that time I couldn`t repair it in the field, had to take it home and punch the hull out with a cleaning rod.

So, I`m in the market for a new shotty. It will be for trap and occasional bird hunting. I was thinking about the stoeger condor competition since its low priced and seems to get good reviews. What does everyone think about the stoeger?

thanks

If the spent shell is not being extracted, it could be a lot cheaper to fix the issue rather than buying a new gun. Do you perform regular maintenance on your mossberg?

I would call the factory and have them service it...

first thing i think of when a shell doesn't extract is a dirty gun. or bad shells.

i agree that fixing it will probably be cheaper than getting a new gun. maybe have moss or a gunsmith look at it and see if there's anything obvious wrong with it.

as for the stoeger - you get what you pay for. a $600 over/under is going to behave like a $600 over/under. so i would highly suggest fixing the moss that you have now and if you want a over/under save up to get a good one. cheap guns are cheap and for the most part, will end up breaking or having problems. there are few exceptions to that (the remington 870 comes to mind. cheap, but a workhorse). you really do get what you pay for.

Have you inspected the extractor? If it happened with 2 different lots of ammo then you can rule out ammo but how many rounds do you have with your 930?

I have ~ 500 rounds through the mossberg. The extractor seems ok (and I hope it would be after so few rounds) but I`m certainly not a gunsmith.

my intital thought was the ammo but its the same brand I typically use so the low brass shouldn`t be the problem. The only difference this time was I put the 18 inch barrel on the gun. I`ve only used the 26 inch hunting barrel before. I did notice the 18 inch barrel gets narrow much more quickly then the 26 incher does - perhaps the spent shell (I was using 2 3/4) was getting stuck due to that?

+1 on dirty gun. what exactly is your version of "cleaning"? have you field stripped and cleaned the entire gun? How much oil do you use? Semi-autos can be finicky with too much oil being used. Light oil only. And only areas that the manual shows where oil should be used.

Below is some videos on field stripping(if needed) on an SPX, but parts should be the similar.

If you have performed a good cleaning, what type of ammo do you use? I see 2 3/4 shells, but what kind of shot? Light loads may have FTE issues. I would buy a few different brands and loads before ruling out that the ammo is not the issue. Doing this gives you an excuse to go to the range.

Switching the barrel should'nt cause FTE.

If all else fails, send it to Mossberg.

A further suggestion in shotgun shells in semi-autos. Do not use reduced recoil shotgun shells, they won't cycle.

I discovered the problem, the shell expanded (.005 larger then the un-shot shell) which caused it to stick in the barrell. The 18 inch 930 barrell gets narrow pretty quickly, which is why I didn`t experience this with the 28 inch barrell since it has a much more gradual slope.
