This may or may not be your problem. My gun is an early 70's 581 which had a problem cleanly chambering a round from the magazine and frequent misfires. On misfires there was barely a mark on the rim...

My early 70s 581 is surprising accurate with quality ammo. It has a Timney trigger and I had Remington replace the bolt head several years ago. If in good shape you shouldn't be disappointed.
