It is the shell stop spring that's broken or dislocated. Those are a miserable *** to work on and not really worth it. I can't think of a worse pump shotgun.

That is because the first shell in the magazine is supposed to extend back approximately a quarter inch back to a machined stop on the closed bolt. When the action is cycled a second stop retains next shell just inside the mag tube until the feed cycle is complete.

It is a rather unusual design and replacement parts are becoming hard to find.

One additional thought: Should the second shell stop break or otherwise fail, that part can be removed and the shotgun will function as a two shot repeater - one in the chamber and one in the magazine. If this is done, it is also advisable to install a magazne tube plug to limit the magazine to one shell.
