new kimber hunter magazine stuck

Hello,
I just purchased a Kimber Hunter in 6.5 Creedmore. I got it home checked it out and went to put the clip/magazine back in and it is now jammed so that I can't get it out. Anybody else have this problem?
Any suggestions?

Thank you,

KimberHntrBoise 6.5

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois, I'm sorry I'm not familiar with Kimber rifles but I'm sure someone will be along that can offer some help.

I have a Kimber Hunter on order in .243, but not sure why your magazine is stuck. When or if I ever see my Hunter, I'll have a look, but sure you don't want to wait that long. If you find a solution, let us know what happened.

Just noticed this is your first post...let me welcome you to the forum!

I have a Kimber 84M Hunter in the 6.5 Creedmoor and just today finished shooting my 110th round through it.

Not even one (1) issue with the clip, but I will share that it's easy to turn it around when it's empty and accidentally insert it with the tab facing forward. Open the bolt and look down into the mag well to see if you put it in 180 degrees off.

Good luck and I hope you figure it out.

P.S. For any members who read this and own an 84M, please let me know if your rifle shoots even close to sub MOA…mine is HARRABLE!

Is the magazine seated properly? With the palm of your hand give it a sharp wack and make sure it's all the way engaged. First I would follow motomans advise and make sure it's inserted in the right direction. Place the rifle across the arms of a soft armed chair, press in on the mag release and gently but firmly try and wiggle it free pulling straight down and out.

Welcome to KT from Northeast, Pa. I don't own a Kimber rifle but I hope you get your magazine issue resolved.

I don't want to hijack this thread, but interested in more details (a range report?) on your Hunter and your disappointment in its accuracy. Can you start a thread in the Rifle Forum on the subject as I'm still waiting on my Hunter and not sure I'm happy with some of the reports I'm seeing on the rifle. Thanks motomanjack.

I agree with Cybercycle, I have been looking/interested in the Kimber rifle line. I am looking at the Classic line in .308 with old school walnut stock.
