    Mossberg 535 jamming. Help please!

    I bought my 535 a couple years ago, great gun for fun/grouse. After cycling probably about 100 rounds through it though and pulling it apart and cleaning it, sometimes after taking a shot and going to reload the shell tip of the shell casing seems to catch on the elevator and for the life of me I can't figure out how to fix it.

    I use 2 3/4" Challenger target load (for fun gunning) and 2 3/4" Winchester Super-X for grouse and it seems to jam on both.

    Anyone else on here have the same issue or happen to have a solution?

    The 535 is the 3-1/2" version of the 500? Does it jam with a 3" shell?

    Assuming there is no chunk of kakah stuck in there interfering with things, that likely isn't your problem.
    Probably the easiest thing to check is that the mag tube is clean, if it's hanging up at all the spring may not have the oomph to push the shell onto the elevator.
    Correct, it can take any any size. Because of how the shell hangs up every time, I'm guessing that the 3" would be too long to jam up the same way. The 3" shell would be an easy fix but unfortunately it doesn't solve the problem to make the gun function properly. The gun has been cleaned and taken care of so I don't think gunk or anything of the sort is the issue.

    Any chance of a pic showing exactly where/how it's hanging up?

    I'll try to replicate it when I get home. I find though that it normally only happens after the gun fires so it may be difficult to do from home with spent shells.

    I pulled the gun apart and cleaned it again and was trying to get it to cycle and jam but didn't have any luck. Kept on doing it for quite a while and it happened and I thought to take a pic. Here you go. I'm really hoping it's an easy fix as I don't really want to change to 3" shells

    Did you even find a solution to this problem? My 535 has the exact same issue with Challenger shells.
