I took the cooey for a walk yesterday and fired a number of shots through it, hoping that it would "fix" itself. No such luck. As long as I shut it with some force ... it works normally. One thing that I did notice ... the ejector doesn't "snap" the shells out.... the ejector just comes out and I have to manually take the spent shell from it. All my other singles "pop" them out when I break the action. Not sure if everything is related or not.
