Try some different shells, easiest thing to try first. Chamber size could be off a little, weak spring, a burr hanging up the shell. Steel bases on cheaper shells swell and stay swelled. Good luck.

. When you say swollen, what are you referring to? I’ll try different shells and see what happens.

Try AA or Remington STS with brass bases.

Works with snap caps , well, then here we go.

Burnish the chambers, use only AA or Rem all brass headed ammo for a while.

I have been known to gently use a heavily oiled new chamber reamer to freshen the chamber.

Mike,
If you don't mind, please explain how you proceeded with that, and where you bought your reamer. Hand turned I assume.

When I was a kid, we all managed to get wet as a matter of course every time we went duck hunting. Paper duck shells by the end of the season would swell up to the point they would no longer chamber. We'd have a coot shoot on the last day of the season to get rid of the swollen up shells...Geo

A brake cylinder hone, some light oil, duct tape for protection of the barrels and a hand drill. Smooth things right out.

Well, reading of the heretofore uniformly dissatisfied customer experiences with CSMC's guns makes me feel like I musta won a gun quality lottery. I bought my RBL 16 when they were first made and have been happily shooting pheasants and prairie grouse with it ever since. Not a high volume test, I've only shot a few hundred targets with it, but no cosmetic nor operating issues in quite a few years. (I'm not gonna count them up, I feel old enough already.)

I felt lucky with this gun from the outset. Though I wanted to specify a higher and straighter than "standard" comb, they didn't offer this. Turned out my gun came with 1-1/8" DAC and 1-7/8" DAH -- perfect for me. Yeah, someone else taking delivery of this gun could have found reason for complaint in those dimensions, but not me. Even the chambers are well and uniformly honed. I suppose their resale value has suffered from all the complaints ... so good thing I'm happy to keep shooting it -- at least until something inevitably goes wrong. smile

Hey Chief, I seem to remember some long ago talk with you here about you getting a 16 ga. RBL that weighed well under 6.5 lbs. Did that gun turn bad for you too?

I think the satisfied customers are happy and are not interested in posting. I love my 28g. 30" RBL (bought in 2016) and my 20g. 30" O/U Inverness (bought in 2014). They have shot clays and been hunted. Never a problem. I hunted both of them for Quail in Georgia in late January this year. I just wish they would clean themselves.


So many guns, so little time!
