    Mine had to go back brand new but had been good since. I suppose you read my story at sgw?

    I should shoot it more to be sure it's good. Since waterfowl is over I've went back to my o/u.

    My XLR5 was a fun gun to shoot as with the #7 choke and 1 1/4 oz of 5's it broke targets beyond belief and allowed me to shoot Custer's for free !

    A good thorough chamber cleaning with a Brass Brush wrapped in steel wool screwed in a cleaning rod , Chucked up in a Drill would probably fix your issue !

    I agree , there're Lemons with every gun manufactured , the XLR5 has shown it is a very nice shotgun for clay targets and with it's extremely high Bar , it's
    kinda in a class by itself . It is one of the easiest Semi Auto's there is to clean and with it's (oldtime) tapered bore barrel , it was very intriguing so I had to
    have one . It's to heavy for a field gun but as a clay target gun , it will compete with the best of them ....IMHO !
    OH , did I say with ALL the options this gun came with , it sure is in a class by itself !

    Maybe others might think the spr 453 is a POS.....? It's fun to debate what is good or Bad , sorry your feeling were hurt thinking you were left out ?
    The question of , is the action spring in the stock better than around the mag tube , the ones who have both ( like ME) have a better idea....IMHO !

    Some autoloading shotguns with the recoil spring in the buttstock also have a lighter spring outside the magazine tube. The Browning Gold and Winchester SX3 are among those.
