10/22 Mag sticking
Like the title says, for some reason, my ruger 10/22 original Mag is sticking. First 5 rounds work fine, then round number six never reaches the top of the feeder. Ejection of the mag and few taps gets it to finish rotating, and works fine for the next 5 rounds. ??
I have taken it part and cleaned it well. Took it out for a test, and same problem. Took it apart in the field to look for burrs and such...none present. cleaned it, put it back together, and even added one extra click to the spring (9 instead of 8) but problem still exists.
This is the original magazine that came with the rifle 12 years ago, but the used ones I bought the same weekend i bought the rifle, do not present these problems, and they are even older then this one is.
Any ideas on what may be causing this "all of a sudden" problem? Like I said, this mag is newer then the 3 others I have.
There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.
