Failure to feed.

Hi: Some time ago I posted about my PXT single stack not feeding the last or seventh roun The factory guy in canada trold me that the reloads that I used in a new gun had slightly worn the top of the mags which prevented the last or seventh round to in the proper position for feeding. Being an ex mechanic I pulled out my micrometer, and checked the diameter ot the reload shells. I found them to be right on. After posting, all of the repliese indicated a spring problem. So, first I purchased two Wilson Combat mags, and one wolf mag. I then ordered a set of three standered springs from Wolf. Since I had run about 3 or 4 hundered rounds thru the gun, I decide maybe I should clean the mags. I had only field cleaned the gun because I wanted to see how it funtioned when dirty. I found that the two para mags with the plastic followers were quite sticky so I cleaned and oiled them. The results; The cleaned and oiled para mags worked flawlesly with a hundered reloads, and two hundered ball loads. The Wilson and the Wolf mags worked great. Icidently, I found that the para mag springs had less tension than the others. In closing I want to thank all of you guys for the great information on ny first post. Cliff

Wilson Combat also sellls a cheap mag spring kit to replace/update the parts in your Para or other mags, consisting of a strong spring and plastic follower.
