    2 Nov. 16

    Trap is a game usually shot with relatively stout 1 1/8 target loads. Recoil can become a factor for some people especially if you shoot several rounds.

    I'd say that you inadvertently hit the cartridge drop lever and released a shell from the magazine. However, even if you did, only one shell should exit the magazine. If both are coming out and...

    I own two 612s and a 620. Unless the sporting clays gun has been modified, something does appear to be wrong.

    With the gun completely empty, chamber and magazine:

    I've had mine for several years. Wonderful carry gun at just a shade over 6 lbs. Use it for pheasants and late season grouse. No problems with it at all. Probably a little light for...

    Jerry,

    You could try steel shot but I doubt the point of impact will change much. Steel hunting loads are faster than lead and might leave the barrel a little earlier thus shooting lower but...

    Sir,

    If you wish to maintain the same pattern you might go to IC/Cyl. Federal, Winchester and Remington all make good light steel loads. You might want to go up to #6 or #5 to try and maintain...

    Joewd,

    I'm assuming that you are getting lightly dented primers and the shell fails to fire.

    Check to see that nothing is getting in the way of the firing pins. Some times debris...

    Jerry,

    Pattern the gun yourself. The size of the pattern is important but if the gun shoots high, low, left or right the size of the pattern won't matter. If the pattern is...

    Might I suggest measuring the LOP on your Citori and comparing it to the 14.25" LOP listed for the SL. At 5' 9" you might find that a LOP of 14.25 is a little too long for fast mounting....

    I couldn't tell any difference. With or without ammunition, the speed of the bolt on the M2 and Affinity seemed to be identical.
