    a friend of mine brought this gun to me as he thought I could help him figure out the problem with the magazine not holding the shells. From some searching on the interent, it seems the shells don't 'clip' in the mag as they do with all my other magazine fed firearms. They just sort of lay in there and you need to hold them down when closing the bolt.

    The problem I did find with this gun is that the shells won't 'flip' off of the bolt. It extracts them from the chamber just fine, but you have to pick them out of the extractor and spring on the opposite side of the bolt from the extractor.

    Does anyone have any idea what the problem might be? I'm thinking maybe weak spring in the magazine that doesn't allow for enough upward pressure to the extracted casing.

    Thanks in advance for any advise.
