Got a NIB Shockwave this week. Stripped it down to clean copious amounts of factory grease and to inspect. Looked good, re-assembled. Upon loading new 2 3/4" shells..problems.
First: Shells are hanging up/hitting something upon loading. Be it the first, second third, ect shell being loaded, one or two, even three, will go into mag tube about halfway then stop..and I have to repeatedly go in/out with it until it will finally load. VERY aggravating. No matter if gun if muzzle up to load, or across my lap or table.
Second problem: Even after cleaning and re-assembling/installing mag spring/follower & cap..I cannot hardly load 5 shells. A couple times..5 went in smooth as butter. ill unload them, re-load em again, cant get the 5th shell in. Then next time, the 5the one will BARELY go, with great effort.
WHAT the hell is going on here? I even took a wood dowel and ran along inside mag tube to feel for rough/catchy spots..nothing. Looked at t under bright light...nothin. No burs on follower or spring. Removed end cap..didnt help capacity issue. Im flumoxed. Help & advice greatly need.

I would recommend taking off the magazine cap and removing the spring and follower. With the mag tube completely empty slide shell though it and see if they get hung up. If all is good reassemble everything and try again, Process of elimination is the only way. Maybe the follower has a rough edge and is causing the problem, Run that through the empty mag tube also. Also try some different shells maybe one of them is the problem. Good luck.

Inspect the spring and follower also when following Number 2's advice. Replacing either if needed is cheap and easy.
