Feed issues

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.

See if you can get Wolff mag springs for your model. Usually, IME, the first item suspect is mag springs.
