Tikka T3 Super Varmint Magazine Problems
Hi all I have a T3 Super Varmint in .223 and having occasional issues with the Magazine. (So note this is the longer mag not the shorter one found on sporters)
First round feeds perfectly, some of the subsequent rounds tilt back so the bolt slides over the top of the round. I have dismantled the mag checked for any little tags etc left over from the molding process, gave everything a gentle rub over with some 400 wet and dry paper, reversed the spring in the magazine so the first bend in the spring sits under the back of the follower but it all made no difference.
The follower does not appear to be catching on anything. Anyone had similar problems? Or have any suggestions. Pics show a round sitting normally 2nd pic is a round tilted back, I have made this a bit worse than actually happens to show clearly what happens. It doesn't take much of a tilt backwards for the bolt to clear the top of the rim when it is pushed forward.
Any help would be appreciated.
