removing feed latch on SX3

How do you remove the feed latch on SX3? I need to pull it and clean real well to see if thats why it is struggling to cycle 3 1/2 shells. Thanks

Download an exploded parts diagram. What are the symptoms? Struggling is not very descriptive.

Here is in detail whats been going on with my gun. I am still in process of diagnosing problem, I have stripped the gun down and checked action spring and cleaned everything real well so only other thing to do is take feed latch and see if dirt or debris is behind it. I really wish I could find out whats wrong cause i love the way the gun shoots.

if you manually cycle the gun will it work?

If you have 2 in the mag tube and one in the chamber and fire it will it cycle? (3" or 3.5")

you could always break it down and wash out the receiver in hot soapy water agitating it a lot to break up any old oil that is gumming it up. blow it out with air and then lube it before trying it again.
