Buddy has a Remington Versa Max that's had issues from day 1. It won't reliably cycle and most issues are ejecting shells. He sent it in and they said they replaced the internals, not sure what though. He got it back and same thing. Pheasant hunting with heavy loads it was pretty much a single shot. Fire, manually eject, fire, manually eject, and so on. He was showing it to me as he knows I work on my own stuff. Manually cycling with a shell you can hear and feel it dragging. I took it apart and can see the finish in the chamber is peeling. Anyone seen this before? He's ready to just get rid of it but hoping I can help him out. I noticed the locking lug recess on the outer edge is burred slightly too from cycling but figured I'd work on the chamber issue first, one thing at a time.
