View Full Version : Mossberg 500 Extraction Problem?

02-27-2006, 11:58 AM
My Mossberg 500 has always had a problem with extracting a spent case from the chamber? It seems as if the extractor fails to grab onto the case rim to pull the case out of the chamber. I have to take a small flat head screwdriver to pull out the spent case. The problem is pretty consistant with all brands of ammo. Any help would be appreciated.

I've never had that problem. If its been that way since you got it, maybe the spring that came in it was no good or out of spec.

check your extractor spring in the bolt? Common problems with HK MP5 9mm FTE ( failure to eject)

Had that suggested to me in another forum (extractor spring). Thanks I'll order one and find out. Thanks!

Please let us know if a new spring fixes your problem.

A friend of mines 500 has done that a few times. I haven't had any time to look at it to see what is wrong with it yet.
