    hey guys,
    I have a new 510 .410 bore and i've shot about 25 rounds with it. My 9 yr old daughter who i bought the gun for can barely pump it and its hard for me too. i'm 6'3 and 250 lbs lol. I have every gun from saige 12 ga to 300 whisper. So i know my guns. This is just ridiculous. I'm no gunsmith tho. I've cleaned
    and oiled the gun numerous times with no luck. Any info would be appreciated. She's about to give up and go back to her .22 and I can't have that!!!

    Howdy Dunigan1, welcome aboard!

    We have seen a number of similar issues being caused by out-of-spec cartridge stops. This can cause the action to bind up as well as feeding failures. Take a look at this thread and see if this helps narrow down the cause...

    I had the same problem with the same gun. I detail stripped everything, cleaned it, polished the high wear areas using my well worn 500E guts spilled out in front of me as a guide, lubed it, reassembled, and then cycled the action hundreds of times. It's still not nearly as smooth as my 15 yr. old gun, but it is 100% better now.
