Does anybody else here have trouble with the 3rd hand tool that AO sells for changing drum magazines on the simiauto thompsons? Or maybe I'm using it wrong?
I find that with the AO 100 round drum, its not easy to insert and remove the 3rd hand tool while the drum is in the gun. So I have to have the tool in place and just leave it there in the magazine channel while shooting. No problem with that. Except that the 3rd hand doesn't fit the slot very well and will get cockeyed and bind up. So then you have an empty drum in the gun, the bolt is closed, and the 3rd hand tool is there but cannot move up and down. It takes a fair bit of cussing and wiggling and a few minutes later the thing is freed up and works.
Is this a common thing? I was wondering if I got a dud that was somehow misshapen a tad and causes it not to work that well.
