Carrier issue

Post by Badkarma » Sun Aug 23, 2020 2:30 am

Hi

Any info on a mod that can fix this issue? When I go to load rounds in the mag tube, some times I’ll hit the top of the mag tube causing me to reposition the round to push it in. Do they offer a carrier with a lip that will line up with the top of the mag tube or another fix?

Any help would be great.

Thank u all up in advance

Never heard of a beveled magtube tube entrance sort of akin to a pistol beveled magwell. An interesting idea though. Perhaps Vitaly knows more.

Practice is the only solution I know of. It is an issue, just not one I've seen addressed other than practice.

Are you loading with the action open or closed?

Action is closed. im feeding two rounds at the same time. Because of the angle when feeding the top of the mag tube catches the round.

Which round, the first to enter or the one that is pushing the first round?

First that enters, angle to feed two is deep. I also changed out the carrier still getting caught up. Have to post photos I’ll do that shortly.
