Hi there,
new to the site,
I've got an old ward western field 22 LR tube feed and when I go to chamber a round (pull bolt back)
it spits out every round in the tube. anyone have any ideas on what's going on?
Thanks in advance.

It would help to know the model number and if this rifle is a semi-auto or bolt.

Mossberg made most of the semi-autos for Montgomery Ward. These models have a cartridge cut-off horseshoe shaped pin and spring. The pin itself is practically indestructible but could stick open if rusted or dirty.

Start with disassembly and cleaning then checking for worn or broken cartridge cutoff or spring. It should move smoothly.
You can Google up a parts diagram. If you need parts identify the model research to find who made it. Parts are available from Numrich (Gun Parts Corp).

Using high velocity rounds in these older Mossberg semi-auto rifles will give you no end of problems. I try to stick with 1080fps.

Good luck

This should be a Mossberg 45A clone.

Numrich has some parts including the cartridge stop at: www.gunpartscorp.com/products/260340A
