OK......It's been a journey of 2 39As. Both are new production within the last 3 years. One is brand new and it has zero problems. The other is about 3 years old and had several problems.......all fixed except a failure to feed. Here are the things that have been replaced or repaired:

Guide spring-replaced
Outer tube-replaced
Inner tube-replaced
Extracter- Replaced with Wisners after market (works great)
Ejector- was loose and was tightened

All of the above done by 3 different gunsmiths and all but one claimed problem resolved. I did notice that the inner tube on this one is much harder to push in. I traded inner tubes today and same thing.


I went to the range today to test with new extracter and every 3-5th round does not feed from tube to chamber. ..takes 3-6 cranks on the lever.What now?

If you have any side play in the lever tighten it. I've had some that this cured feed problems, the lever actuates the feeding.

Check and make sure the mating halves are free of residue.
