I've taken my KS7 to the range a couple of times, now, and I've had it jam each time.  The cause seems to be that it's kicking out too many rounds when I cycle the action.  Two or even three just burp out, when I'm using the minishells.  I haven't tried the full size rounds, yet, but from what I've seen in reviews, this shouldn't be happening.  Does anyone have any ideas on what's causing it, and how I might fix it?

I called up Kel-Tec, today, and spoke with Murt.  I explained what I was experiencing, and the first thing he asked me was, "Did you do the break-in procedure?"  Uh, the what?

I didn't see that in the manual, and I will look for it, but I should have run ~200 rounds through the shotgun before running the minishells.  I'm thinking that this must be due to the spring in the tube.  After 200 rounds it must be less "responsive" than new, and won't burp out the minishells.  So, I'm off to the range with a whole lot of double-ott buck, soon!    Grin
