WIN52(R) magazine issues



Log in to see fewer ads
Hello too all:

I finally had the chance to shoot my 52(R) due to the range facility being closed for COVID 19. The rifle shot very very accurately. I was pleased beyond words. However, the magazines of which I have 5 gave me fits. They are brand new Wisners & the rifle has been shot very little perhaps that is why? They went in & came out very hard. They went in w/ a little nudge & came out w/ the same. In anyone's experience what can I do w/o filing away & possibly ruining the mags? Thanks in advance for any & all the help...

Stay well & safe, Vince

You will get many suggestions here to get factory magazines. Not too much love here for the Wisners. I have several Wisners for three different brands. All have been flawless and I highly recommended them. I actually use the Wisners instead of the factory mags for all. Why? Well, they work. And I can save the factory mags for collector value if I ever get rid of the rifles. Or should I say, when my heirs get rid of them...
Try modifying one, till it works. If it does, repeat. If not, get factory mags.

I have about 10 of Wisner, they all drop free.
- On 1 or 2 of them, I had to file the bottom of the dimple, for them to properly lock in place.

Any drag mark on your troublesome magazine(s) ?
Was your rifle tinkered with? As in, someone took the mag release mechanism apart and didn't put it back properly
