Failure To Feed ??

343 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  RICOCHET
okay guys, have a 93r17, and every so often, too often, actually, get a failure to feed condition. the magazine goes into the mag well and needs to be "squiggled" around to seat properly. still get FTF's with all types of ammo.

the mag is loose if the bolt is open but is snug after closing the bolt.

any ideas as to what could cause this frustrating phenomenom ??

thanks all.

You are having so many problems with that gun no wonder the dude sold it :D .
Bend the "L" bracket forward a tad. That will change the feed angle. Make sure the mounting screws are tight first.
We already talked about the loose mag in one of you other posts.

93r,

thanks for the reply, yea, am getting it going here. if its not one thing its fifty others.
read that post about bending the "L" tab, but figured the previous owner had already done that. will try that and see. not giving up on the "beast"

thanks again.

93r17, okay, just got thru fiddling with the "beast", and think i got it. ran a couple mags full with diff ammo and seems to be working okay now. in fact went one step further and sanded a tad on the sides of the L bracket and now the mags seem to slide out on their own weight where they didn't before.

thanks again for your patience.
