You mentioned it's an older gun. Sounds like you have some wear on the bolt lock and the barrel locking lug recess that is allowing this 1/4" play back and forth.

I'm not for sure on age. Guess mid 90s model. It has had several 3 and 3 1/2 turkey loads ran through it. Use it for turkey and coyote hunting only.

Post the first five prefixes of the serial number and I might be able to give you a year from our serial number data base.
 
Think I found my problem. My bolt lock had a small bur on it not allowing it to go all the way into place. Have put 12 rounds through it since I fixed that and so far so good.
