I have a CSSPECS 8 round steel magazine that I bought quite a while ago. When I first got it I ran some rounds through it and it seemed OK. I haven't done anything with it in quite a while, but I loaded it up yesterday and tried to use it. I first loaded 5 rounds in it and all 5 ran fine. Loaded up some more and now the first round "jams" and will not load. Took that round out and tried again, same thing.

I took those rounds out and put them in a different mag and all ran fine. loaded up another mag and it ran fine too. 

Loaded the CSSPECS mag up again and the same thing. Puzzeled.

I am going to try to get a hold of CSSPECS and discuss it with them.

Did you pull the mag apart and clean / lube it? How about the feed lips, they might need attention?

Does your mag hold 9? There was an updated follower back a year ago or so.

I think I got that updated follower-I'll check and see how many it holds.

I have tried many times to call CSSPECS, left some voice messages and tried to email them with no reply. Are they still in business?

Im on vacation actually. Voice mail forwarding was not working yesterday.

The updated follower has an extra spring guide in the follower. It would have two spot welds in the center of the top side visable when assembled.

^ Gotcha. Sorry to disrupt your vacation. OK, I see the two spot welds on the follower. ^

 

Please contact me when you get back to work. Thanks
