cant load my shotgun

i just bought a mossberg 88 off a buddy of mine and i cant get more than one shell in the loader, the second one will only go half way in like the spring wont compress anymore. I took the barrel off to see if the dowel was still in there but i couldnt see anything, and it looks like the spring might be warped or something like instead of goin around it was bent where one was goin sideways i donno. is this fixable or do i need to get a new loader?

I would see about buying a new spring for it.

or the plug is binding

i had one of those the plug could be catching too if its a little out of shape but your good i think a 500 one is the same readily avalable at your local gun shop

its better to burn out than fade away

.

probably just a spring problem, i just got mine and no probs with it, got for 175 bux but it shoots better than my old mossberg 500. what i may do is find forearm and stock of mossberg 500 and put it in my 88.

I'm just another damn yankee with a loaded gun looking for some fun!
