Default Stevens 59A .410

I have a gap this afternoon between meetings so I thought Iíd ask a question I might not otherwise:

Anyone own or have worked on a Stevens 59A??

An acquaintance/friend I coach wrestling with on our Kidís Fed team - called me about a Stevens 59A. He said the bolt feels weird engaging, but he canít really otherwise explain whatís going on with it. Iím able to pick it up from him tonight, but thought Iíd ask around if folks have had common issues I can look into, whether itís the cause for what heís seeing or not...

Doing a bit of research, Iím finding conflicting reports it may be a cock-on-close action design, can anyone confirm or correct?

Iím also seeing reports of extractor issues and some ejector issues (which in reading donít seem to make much sense, but Iíll inspect nonetheless). At the end of the day, I expect Iíll be able to quickly identify what ails it once I have it in hand tonight, and whether itís a clean and return job, tweak and tune job, or scavenge for replacement parts job, Iím sure Iíll have a path soon enough - but are there any other ailments which youíve seen befall the 59Aís which I should look for and/or preemptively correct while I have it on my bench?
