Stoeger M3500 problems.

I have a low round count M3500 that I bought new last fall. I have never had an issue with it until my last outing. It quit cycling 2 3/4" 1 1/8 oz Winchester loads. Is this a problem or is it just cause its a 3 1/2" gun? It did cycle the light target loads until last week.

red, i'm not that familure with stoeger shotguns but it sounds like the gas port is got something in it that's causing it not to cycle right or at all.

bet a good cleaning of the shoddy and gas port will help and reveal anything wrong with it or any other problems.

had a old shotgun that you could adjust the gas port for the load you were using and it was doing same thing, i cleaned it real good and it worked well until it got real dirty then clean it and it was back to normal.

The Stoeger is an inertia action. Will it still have gas ports?

Will it cycle heavier loads?
My m2000 cycled everything I put through it
If you need to, I've had good luck with their customer service,
it's been a few years but I believe I called Benelli USA and the response was
quick and helpful

Perhaps the loads aren't heavy enough.
