trouble with 40rd

977 Views 6 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  1911greg
When shooting my 40rd it holds the bolt open on a full mag shoot a few rounds and the bolt is open WTF? so you just pull back the bolt let it go and then you can get off a few shots then it does it again.

any ideas?:mad:

when yo load 20 rnds. in it does it still hang up? or is it only when the mag is loaded near capacity? I have some old Scherer 40 rnd mags I had to use a jizz wheel on and open up between the feed lips. You may want to install a Wolff extra power recoil spring first. Some of the PMI 40's when new and loaded up near capacity will also hang up until you get down to 34-35 rnds. Just make sure it's not something else before removing material from the mag. If someone else you shoot with has a Mini you may want to let them try the mag and see if it acts the same in there rifle. By the way what brand magazine is it?
