Grab-A-Gun Magazines
« on: April 15, 2018, 01:14:10 PM »
Finally got around to testing the new mag I got from Grab-a Gun. I ran 30 rounds through that one mag this afternoon on some water jugs, and it ran flawlessly. Zero glitches or hang ups. No mods necessary!  This was a new 2018 mag. I think Remington has finally got it going...................maybe  ;)

That's great to hear!  I am still having some problems with the magazines I previously modified, so may just get the new ones.

I would definitely try the new mags. They are cheap ( 14.99) and mine appears at least to work properly. I was even able to chamber a round on a fully loaded magazine! Wasn't able to do that with a stock mag before! Funny you are still having problems with your modified mags. I would have figured for sure they would work.

It's odd.  I bent the lip to correct the nose dives, but I may have to bend them back in some.  I am having the opposite of the nose dive, which I think is a "nose up chamber feed failure".  It's like a stovepipe, but it's a live round.  It's only happening to the last round in the magazine. 

Best I can figure is that without the lip to stop the follower, it's tipping up so much that it's pushing the last round past the chamber before it closes so the cartridge ends up poking out of the ejector port bullet tip exposed. 

Any other explanations?

You got a basket case for a magazine. I have never heard of anything that bad in my life. There shouldn't be enough spring tension to make the round do that if it is the last round in the mag. I think these mags like to invent new failures to keep us wondering. Strange.

I have one mag that does the exact same thing, the other is perfect every time. Initially it was only doing it on the last round of the mag but today I was out with it and it happened on a second to the last round. One live round was stove-piped and the last round was jammed under it trying to enter the chamber, a double feed I guess. I'll have to measure the lips and compare them to my good mag.
