Does this look normal? shouldn't the round be pushed out of the mag by the slide as it returns?

Great shot of an inertia fed round, it knew right where to go. :biglaugh:

This is a mag problem exasperated by the left hand grip probably, admittedly don't know if you are left or right handed.

1) Why and how did you happen to have the camera pointed exactly at the chamber at that particular moment ?

2) What happened next ?

1)I was camping with some family and took the picture to show how operation went, my brother made sure it was aimed safely, I pulled the trigger on the gun and camera.

2) It ran fine. I finished the magazine.

I have only had 1 FTE with this gun, awhile back. But I think it's time for better magazines

Perfect example of how a round could chamber with the firing pin extended and jammed there. Remember the Colt that went back to the factory after a kaboom? Probably hard on the extractor hook too. I'm gonna bookmark this photo.

Well I'm glad I educated the masses

Now time to help me :biglaugh:


Is this happening because the feed lips on the mag are out of spec?

Could be one thing or a combination. Mag spring, could be weak, recoil spring, could be to heavy or to light causing the recoil impulse to pop the cartridge out of the mag, feed lips oily, I know they can get that way from the gun , but adds to the ease of the cartridge popping out unescorted. A light hold on the grip will aid in this, as allowing the gun to jerk back is the motion that triggers this.

and oil on the lips or case lube on the ammo?

I think the ammo can do this also. short ammo can walk forward in the mag. and with short lips, that just gets you closer to jumping out. I think the variations in brass dimensions can do it to. I can load up my Wilson 47D and give it a hard slap up and the top round can jump forward, with the right\wrong ammo in it.
