HelloThe 1000 is a great shotgun, once the tube and piston operation is understood. During cleaning and dis-assembly, I did pull out the black goop. My tube was never damaged by the piston retaining pin slapping against the rear of the tube slots. So in order,I
1. Freed the frozen spring washer by turning it while pushing down with a large screwdriver,then aligning the slots for re-installation.
2.re-installed the flat washer, same as tube ID.
3. Replaced the goop with a garden washer that was thick enough to insure that it acted as a buffer preventing the piston pin from slamming against the rearward portion of the tube slot. Also the ring O.D. must be a tight fit.
4. Lubed and installed the piston(pin hole rearward,it's outer-ring and gas end cap.
5. Install barrel, forestock and endcap.
6. The only thing I haven't figured was how to remove the tube pin to change the capacity!:feedback:

Good Evening everyone,
I am new to this post but I have a Smith & Wesson 1000 that looks identical to the one pictured by Hammer Down. The gun is in great condition. There have been no problems with the gun until recently. I took the gun out the other day to shoot with my brother in law. I was unable to load any bullets into the magazine. I decided to shoot a Belgium Browning instead.
What do I need to do in order to fix this problem?
I look forward to hearing any advise that can be given.
