New? Take it back. Used? Have you cleaned the recoil spring that is back inside the stock? My hunting partner's 12ga issues were cured with cleaning and finally replacing the recoil spring. His is very reliable.

i was shooting target loads, took it apart and cleaned it real good a second time, read somewhere i should try some high velocity shells through it so it put the light load piston back in and grabbed a box of kent faststeel 1550 fps and it worked perfect kicked out the shells 30 ft...I am going to just keep working the action, breaking it in, shooting high velocity stuff and hopefully over time it will kick out the light stuff...
