    When I insert the mag without any rounds the mag goes in and can dry fire.

    When I put some rounds in the mag and try to chamber them they are blocked by what appears to be a straight (finger) maybe the counterbalance??

    Anyone have any ideas. Oh , recently had a joey trigger installed by gunsmith. The gun was returned to him to figure out the problem.

    TIA

    What the heck?:confused:




    Sometimes the top round can hit the LRHO on the left side of things. If you tweak the mag lips to the right, that stops happening.

    Some have actually pounded the bits of the LRHO flatter, others have ground or filed bits of it off.

    And then, someone mentioned that if you shim the mag to the right, everything works fine. Iirc, they used a coating of JB weld on one side of the mag to do that.

    The mag's go in when no rounds are in them and cycles fine. I have 3 mag's and it happens with all 3. Didn't happen before the trigger work?? Do you know what the "finger" I referred to is?

    Are you saying that the gunsmith couldn't fix it?

    You've got quite a gunsmith there :rolleyes:, hopefully he got it right the second time.

    Is that gunsmith lingo for "I put the trigger retaining pin in facing the wrong direction"?

    How much did this whole 15 minute job cost you? If you don't mind me asking.
