Help Diagnose Problem
Posted 03 September 2003 - 06:25 PM
Using a drum which does not contact this trip in the channel, trigger and bolt seem to be working normally. Insert a box mag, and it will not function. Anyone seen this problem before, recommend repair procedure, and advise possible cause? Maybe I inserted a box mag with bolt closed causing damge to the disconnector spring? Your help and advice is most welcomed. Thanks.

With an empty box magazine in the gun, the tab on the back of the mag follower engages the Trip (which has no spring) which depresses the disconnecter preventing the bolt from being released. It does this on the last shot so you have only to insert a fresh magazine in order to continue shooting. The drum has no provision for this function and the bolt will go home on an empty chamber when the drum is exhausted.
