Got a question, I just bought a Rem. Model 11/87 12ga. shotgun, and I brought it home and was just getting acquainted with it, and trying to run rounds through the action w/o actually shooting it, the odd thing about it is, I have to work the bolt release manually in order to cycle each round, where a normal semiautomatic rifle would just cycle the rounds it's self.

My question is, is this normal, the rounds not cycling, or do I need to send the gun back?

I would just go out and shoot it but the nearest range is just over an hour and a half away.

If you dont pull the trigger on a live round then you will have to cycle it manually. If you do fire a round and it doesn't cycle then there is something wrong.

Giving the nature of the question, might I make a friendly suggestion and suggest you get some tutoring before you take it to the range for the first time.

Obviously, this is my first automatic shotgun, and ya, I'm reading the manual front to back. Thanks for the reply.
