    That doesn't sound very good.
    Try giving the chamber a really good clean with a 20g shotgun mop and a gun cleaning solvent. If that doesn't help then I would probably get a gunsmith take a look at it.

    its a bit common to these type of rifles apparently its a handi ill do a polish first and try reloads as now ive got some fireformed brass and see what happens I can do a lot of the work myself a 20g mop with some kind of fine compound on it might be worth a try first

    Mate if your going to polish the chamber with a mop and are looking for a very fine compound............. use Toothpaste.

    You'll be surprised by how well it works.

    Will help stop tooth decay and make your rifles breath smell nice too

    Cheers

    Is there such thing as a chamber polisher?
    I thought you just used a brush and some rag made to fit.

    not that I can see it cant be much tho it only needs the slightest of taps with a cleaning rod to get them out I should put bearing blue on a case and see if it shows anything I see in the us they grind a bit out of the back of the chamber so you can stick a screw driver in to flick the case out that seems pretty butcherous to me was thinking possibly a sticky ejector but it seems to be fine be good to get it going its one of those rifles you either love or hate ive got 2 now and they suit leftys
