Here's a puzzler. For those of you who've ever listened to NPR's car talk you'll know what I mean :)
If a pistol caliber carbine feeds and functions reliably when you only half way load the mags but get's numerous FTF with the round lodged pointing almost straight up, what's the most likely causes?
I have a High Point I'm working on with a son and when the 10 round mags have 5 or less rounds it NEVER EVER malfunctions but when you go beyond 5 rounds you start to get real bad FTF's. The FTF's come early in the mag and after you've cleared a few jams and only have 4 or 5 rounds left then it all clears up and you can shoot the rest of the mag off without any problem.
I'm assuming that it's the mags and not the weapon.
I've tried three different mags and one mag is noticeably better than the other two but the all still act the same basic way.
So what are your guesses as to the most probably causes? It's a fun gun and fun to tinker on although I'd certainly never rely on it for any real defensive scenario; If that were the case my 5 shot snubbies would do as well!
So, let the detective work begin!
