    Picture is exactly what I was describing. The ejector should look just like that.

    You are doing everything right. Please report back. In my experience with a couple the 1301 is dead nuts reliable with all sorts of ammo and a delight to handle and shoot. Donít second guess the purchase.

    Also in my experience, Beretta is an awesome
    company to deal with if something isnít right. They will fix it. Langdon is similar.

    Iíve now drawn a witness mark on the endcap to ensure itís fully seated after every tear down.
    Youíre not kidding. My handguard adaptor is really finicky about fitting into the front of the Zhokov handguard. I have to push my handguard forward and get the adaptor seated then slide the adaptor over the magazine tube to keep it lined up before sliding both back and installing the magazine extension. If Iím not paying attention the adaptor doesnít seat right in the handguard and itís not immediately noticeable.

    I lubed it pretty liberally.

    Thank you for verifying that it looks OK. Much appreciated!

    I talked to Langdon today. Some of the the repís comments echoed those who posted here. Basically we agreed that another trip to the range is in order and I still plan to follow the game plan I posted a couple of messages above this one. Iím hopeful for tomorrows time at the range, but I think my 54 year old shoulder is a little reluctant for 50+ rounds of slugs again. 😀

    Thank you for your encouragement about the shotgun. I really hope this gets resolved and Iím as happy with my shotgun as most here seem to be with theirs. It perfectly fits a very specific role for me but I need it to be reliable.

    I think all your ammo is BADÖ send it to me and Iíll dispose of it properly!!!

    Fifty rounds of #LEB127DPRS Federal LE Tactical TruBall Deep Penetrator Rifled Slugs (1350 fps) this morning and zero issues. I ran the shotgun as fast as I could given the indoor shooting rangeís ďone second between shotsĒ rule. Itís a long way from my even considering this for an HD role but this is certainly a step or two in the right direction. Three malfunctions within the first sixteen rounds fired, but now eighty-four rounds fired without issue.

    The ammo I used on my first range trip was #PB127 DPRS Federal Vital-Shok 1 oz Deep Penetrator TruBall Hollow Point Rifled Slug (1350 fps) and, according to Federal, it is the same shell as the #PB127 DPRS I was using today but my cases of ammunition were made about a year apart and they do have different color hulls. I donít know if they are run on the same production line but given it was all I had I figured it might be different enough to at least determine if my issues were ammo related or not. Since, with a lot of help from users here, my extractor and ejector seemed to look OK, Iím wondering if I donít have a case of ammo that might have some issues. Iíll run some of the suspect ammo in a known reliable shotgun later and see if I experience more problems with it. As best I can recall it was purchased / manufactured in the middle of the worst of the Covid era.

    As it stands now Iím hoping to be back at the range this coming Monday or thereabouts with another fifty or so rounds to confirm zero on the Aimpoint and zero the CROM iron sights.

    Glad your on your way to sorting out the problem!

    Do you have another semiautomatic to test the bad shells and see if the problems follow them? I wonder if you could replicate the problem.

    Iím wincing more for your wallet than your shoulder. Those shells are not cheap.

    I would suggest, now that you have a good run with reliable ammo, that you run some of the suspect ammo in the 1301 again. Seems like if it still has an issue you can be looking at the ammo instead of the gun.

    I have a Benelli M4 thatís been 100% with any slugs and buckshot Iíve put through it. As to price, you are not kidding. I have several cases on hand with an average price per shell of about $1.18 or so. The range had some standard Federal slugs they were selling for $13.00 per box for range use. Not a mistype - $13.00 per boxÖ.. $2.60 per round. Iíve paid less for Brenneke slugs!

    Thanks for your suggestion. Iíll work it out so that I have at least another 100 rounds or so through the LTT 1301 before I start to get comfortable with its reliability. Since itís running good with the Federal LE ammo Iíll probably stick with that for a while. I am curious to run the ďsuspect ammoĒ through a known reliable shotgun.

    The more I think about it, there could be an issue with a few of the shells in the new batch, they are mass produced in larger quantities more so than the shotgun.

    But I have two 1301s and a 391 that I ran like I stole it for years (probably >10k rounds) and none of them have ever missed a beat, so I wouldn't start sweating it until it bobbled on another batch of ammo.
