Default Remington model 597 jam

I bought it last year and since it was brand new, almost every time I shoot it, it jams when the next bullet tries to chamber, any ideas on how to fix it, I bought another clip and same thing

The 597's have a clip problem. Call Remington and they will send you a new clip at no charge. The new clip fixed my problem.

try loading 5 rounds in the magazine. If you do the magazine fix on the link it will fix it.

man, I wouldn't trade my magical Marlin Model 60 for 10 of these guns!!! The thing feeds everything. For an autoloader, that's like gold!
