Having feeding problems with your TCP 738? The fix is here....

Does your TCP 738 have feeding problems, Hang when you chamber the 1st round? Your not a loan I too had this problem and thought " oh no I bought one of the bad tcp's" well I searched the internet about my problem and found Taurusarmed.net and within your forum I found the fix. I read that by simply bending the mag feed lips outwards a little at a time could possibly fix the feed issues, Well I tried it and it worked 100% for me.
I can not find any video's on this easy and affective fix so I made one, I do not take credit off any kind for this fix just passing it on in a video. I like this forum and am just trying to contribute what I can. This may or may not work for your feeding issues but is worth a try. I have done no other mods to make it feed other then this. This is my 1st video of this kind so it is not the best quality.

The last shot did feed but failed to eject, Mostly due to the lack of force I used to pull back the slide. Not all TCP's have this problem only a few out of the thousands made. I read this is a common problem with many small 380's but the fix is easy. After I did this mod I have not had a real problem in over 250 rounds. The TCP really is a great little gun for the $$$.

My 709 is not feeding the last round. I just bought it 2 days ago. Somewhat disappointing.

Good video. I have a B model that has always been stubborn to feed the first round by hand. No ftf when shooting. I have 3 mags and I adjusted 1 per the video and it was a 100% improvement except for the last round. Just for fun I tried my other 2 mags and guess what? They don't like to load 1 round by hand. I may work on mage 3 a little more. I have had the extractor break on this gun which I replaced myself. They both worked the same, it seems that it is a tight fit under the extractor and I am reluctant to file/polish this part since the gun is pretty much flawless when fired.
