    Ejector issues with Springfield single shot 20

    I have a Savage-Springfield Model 944 series A 20 ga. single shot that won't extract or eject the shells. I've cleaned it thoroughly, replaced the extractor and ejector parts and springs, and it still don't extract nor eject. I've been very careful to reassemble it exactly as it was when I got it.
    I can't find any details online about how it's supposed to go together. I find exploded drawings, but no assembly instructions or drawings. I'm wondering if it was wrongly assembled in the first place and has always had a problem and that's why I got such a good deal on it.
    Can anyone supply assembly instructions or drawings, or tell me if I've missed something here?
    Thanks in advance for all your help.

    Will it extract a loaded shell? Does the extractor/ejector lift when there is no shell in the chamber?

    If so I would polish the chamber on it. I've done a few single shots that would not extract/eject and polishing the chamber done the job.

    Your shotgun is supposed to have an extractor not ejector. It does however have a spring.

    Thanks for the link. Everything helps.
    Mi gun won't extract a live shell nor a fired one. The extractor does lift with no shell in chamber, but not with one. I've replaced the spring, extractor and other stuff.
    I have an exploded drawing I found online that identifies some parts as ejector parts. Mine does nothing.
    Thanks for the reply and the advice. I appreciate it.
