I'm looking to hints and tips for tweaking cranky magazines. Here's your chance to contribue to a new FAQ for the forum!

This will depend largely on the overall condition of the magazine.
My fixes have included:

1.) Deep and extensive cleaning
2.) New and possibly heavier Springs
3.) In the case of Cartridge Nose-dives -
The bending of Middle of the top Spring Coil at 45 degrees up
(This is done at the factory on current Mec-Gar Witness magazines)
4.) Polishing or replacing Magazine Follower
5.) Adjustment of Metal Magazine Tube Lips
6.) Gentle Polishing of Internal or External Magazine Tube Surfaces
7.) With Failure of all previous treatments - Replacement
Do you have a digital camera? A photo display would be a tremendous help to newbies who are interested in learning. Good post!!

Perhaps more elaboration and how to could go on a Thread in the Gunsmithing Area. I will try to get to it, as my time allows.
I really think a good photo display would make a great FAQ for the archive. Almost everyone has had problems with magazines, some of us have "worked" on them... and then thrown them away because we "worked" on them, and a few of you guys have some good expertise! This would make a great contribution as a new moderator!
