Feed issues

Postby tangodown » Fri, 29 Apr 2016 06:41:41

So I got that Bersa(Series 95 .380), and while it fires true and accurate, I am having a feed issue on the stock Bersa mag. It will feed shoot and eject the first 4 rounds, then on the 5th round it will fail to feed from the mag to the breach? Now I have bought an after market mag for it, and it seems to have reduced the feed issue, but it continues to persist.

I am not sure what the issue is. It doesnt matter the brand of ammo either. Is it a feed ramp, follower plate, spring pressure or a shooter issue possibly? I have never run across this issue before, any imput would be appreciated.

If four feed fine, it isn't a feed ramp issue. I'd go with spring pressure or possibly a burr near the top of the mag that the follower plate hits on the last round.

i've seen people let their thumbs (un-noticed of course) put friction on the slide, causing occasional, or frequent malfunctions that drive the smith crazy trying to find the reason for! :-) but if it always happens on a give round in the stack, then, yes, it's something about the spring, follower or mag body at that point in the cycle.
