Have your mags been converted to 5 shot mags? I guess it's a Canada thing?

They are fine firearms.

Yes , they are a lot more fun if you put 19 / 20 rounds in them . Being closed bolt vs open bolt , some mags won't seat with the bolt closed and 20 inside . I use a popcycle stick in the charging lever slot to hold the bolt back for loading / cooling / range safety .

They are scarry accurate even with the irons .

If this is happening on an OOW rifle I would arrange to have it returned to Ohio Ordnance to have them find and fix the problem ... The rifle should not do that and it is very dangerous.

Very nice. You should move to Florida. 20rd. mags and warmer. Just got back from Quebec City and had a wonderful time. Great, polite people and a wonderful place to visit. Food was good and tons of history. 

Enjoy

Eric
