I inherited a 1918 11-A 5-shot 12ga. I shot it a lot when I was young and besides being a handful for a boy, I remember it ran fantastic.

Last summer, I brought it out and tried to run some light game load through it. It double-fired and FTF/stovepiped a 3rd round.

I tore it down, found a broken trigger spring/bar. Replaced it, oiled it, tried again. Same result.

Tore it down fully, breach block had a crack. Drilled divots on the ends and Tig welded the crack, lightly squeezed with a small c-clamp.

Reassembled, oiled and fired. Tension nut is snug but not reefed on. Same result.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
