Cool PC II Hits 275

Well, my Pro Carry II has made it to 275 round in the break in. In addition, I caught the culprit responsible for the FTF!!!fear.gif fear.gif fear.gif It seems that one of my Chip McCormick magazines is the weak link in the feeding department.

After the first hang up (Slide barely caught on the rear of the magazine and failed to chamber the round. The slide lock was also barely engaged. A slight bump caused the round to finally slide into the chamber. I set the mag aside and used my other 3 with no additional hick ups......!! I saved 8 rounds for the end of the range session and loaded them up in the offending magazine to give it a chance to redeem itself. Guess what happened?? That's right, the very same failure!!!mad2.gif mad2.gif mad2.gif I could find no visual difference in that mag when compared with the other three. Soooooo..........., I just write off that mag, buy another, hoping that it will function properly and go about my merry way!! The next time I go to an outdoor range, guess what the first target is?? That's right, that Chip McCormick magazine!!! shocked.gif shocked.gif I may even splurge on a Wilson Combat mag!!!

How did the PC shoot this time? Well, I attached one of the 20 yard targets below:

Cool that it was such a simple fix. I agree with using it for target practice! We often use our outdoor range time to 'properly destroy' hard drives from computers from my business. Very gratifying!

Keith which model magazine do you have and have you tried contacting CMC mags? You never know a lot of these companies will stand behind their products even after the warranty has expired.

Thanks for that reminder, Chuck. I hadn't even given that a thought. It won't cost me anything to call. I'll give the old "Chipster" a chance to make it right. I may get a new magazine out of the deal. nod.gif nod.gif nod.gif

Thanks again, Chuck!!
