    Recently bought a Colt SCG -- gun shoots great -- magazines work fine but can not get 8 rounds in either one -- any suggestions? IMG_3545.JPG

    Let em sit with 7 rounds for a few days, then put in the 8th and let em sit for couple days.

    Pretty sure that is a Metalform Logo Stamp and I have a bunch of their mags and never had a problem loading them with 8 rounds even new.

    Appreciate all the suggestions -- helpful and otherwise -- both mags now resting quietly in my desk drawer with 8 rounds loaded -- hopefully get some range time today or tomorrow.

    Are there any specific exercises you would suggest? ;)

    Tac Tools is running a Black Friday Special on hammers. I'm sure the ad will be up soon !

    In your otherwise category, paint over the number 8 and go with 7.......after a day of practice, you won't need more than 7.

    You can thank me later!

    Trivia: An 8 shot MF with a CMC 7 to 8 conversion will hold 9 rounds. Tension is light but mine do work.
