    Promag 25rd Magazine issue

    I got the 2 promag 25rd mags that I ordered a couple of weeks ago, and finally took them out shooting last weekend. There is a problem, they both stovepipe the round when releasing the bolt on initial load. I need to play with them a bit more, but does anyone have any ideas? I hate to go filing on them before I know for sure what the problem is.

    Someone said that they just need to be broken in, so I may try to manually feed a few rounds again, but it was also bending some of the ammo.

    I will also be contacting Promag once I get some pics.

    Wish I had an answer. I just shot about 150 rounds [ golden bullets and mini mags ] in my 795 with no problems. Hope you get an answer.

    Multiple magazines on the same gun?

    I've only ever heard of one other problem (in the other thread), and it was multiple magazines with the same gun. The guy had trouble to getting the first round to load. He said he had to play around with seatment for five minutes or so to clear it up.

    Assuming that you'r letting the bolt slam and not "walking it down" with your finger, I can't help but wonder of it's a tolerance thing with the particular guns, which then leads me to wonder - are you 100% sure your trigger guard isn't cracked? Particularly by the rear screw?

    I'll check it, and the seating too, but the factory 10rd mag is what I used instead to run a 100 rounds or so through it. That worked fine.

    I wanted to make an update to this. I emailed Promag and they had me send the mags back. They sent me a couple of replacements.... SAME damn issue. So I said screw it and sanded down the follower. Turns out the angle is too extreme and the bolt was catching on the next round. When I put only 1 round in, it was fine. Now I can run all 25 rounds through with no issues.
