Upward pressure on magazine?



Log in to see fewer ads
I have one 10/22 that's been really frustrating with failure to feeds and occasional stove pipes. Bullets will jam nose up before getting into the chamber.

Anyway, noticed the other day, if I apply pressure to the bottom of the magazine, almost all the ftf's go away. Would this indicate needing a new/stronger mag release plunger spring?

That would definitely be the first thing I would try. I'd just replace the whole plunger with a Kidd.

This mod solved that problem for me:

You only need to remove a tiny bit of material. Hope this helps.

As simple and silly as that sounds, the Kidd plunger did make a difference in one of my guns. And I got the higher tensioned spring for it at the time as well. I don't know if it was so much the plunger in question that helped as it was the heavier spring to prevent mags from wanting to go backwards, but in that one gun it made a difference.

I'm going to try the mod that Old-Corps posted. Unfortunately, he posted it too late to keep me from spending 50 bucks while looking for a $7.50 plunger and spring, thanks to these other two yahoos. 😀 Might as well get an extractor, charging handle assembly and couple of upgraded takedown screws too. I mean, I'm already paying shipping right?

.. Yupp... you can try to trim the OEM as per that Video.. then compare to the KIDD function.. they will both work.. but it is piece of mind knowing you have the BEST components on the market when you install KIDD goods. Like buying tires.. they are all rubber and round.. but, some are much better than others.

I'm sure they'll work great. I'm actually just trying to get my to do list of gun tinkering done so I can start my first 10/22 from scratch build. I picked up one of those Kingston receivers to do a "precision" build.
