    Unlike mine, where every once and awhile it won't lock up. I believe the problem is that if the hammer won't "cock", then the action lock leveer can not function correctly. Can't seem to find the problem when I take the trigger group out, and it happens occasional, I stopped using the gun for defence, will likely sell it as a "fixer upper"

    I believe that is wrong. After firing he should be able to cycle the action without depressing the action lock button.

    Vic, spend a few bucks and get a couple of 12 ga. snap-cap rounds. Then you can load the gun and have the snap cap in the chamber. You can "rack-and-go" that way.

    I have a Maverick 88, which functions the same as the Mossberg. When you rack it, and shut the chamber, it wont let you open it again until you have either pulled the trigger, or hold the little button next to the trigger to release the chamber lock mechanism. Those are the only two ways it should open back up.

    I agree with Chuck. Either the trigger or the button should release the lock.

    Posting from my phone, I blame all typos on Swype.

    Holy old thread.

    And after rereading the OP's post from SIX (6) years ago, I stand by what I said then.
