I'd be happy if I could get my H.P. Carbine to fire without ftf's, period. I bought 2 Redball mags b/c I read stock mags suck. It was no help. Tried Winchester ammo just in case it was an ammo problem. No help. I'm thinking extractor or follower problem but I'm no gunsmith so that's my next step, I guess. How many people have had the same problem with their 995TS? Just wondering if I'm just unlucky with a lemon or if this has been common. I release the bolt with no mag and it goes home fine. But when it has a mag in it, it doesn't want to go completely home the 1st time and I have to pull it back, ejecting a round and then it will go home and chamber a round. Very frustrating. Sorry, not trying to hijack your post. Just frustrated.
