My Dad had a Stoeger too. when I first saw this one laying on a table at gun show it reminded me of his. When I got it home I had jams, misfires failure to feed and eject. I took it apart and found it had a broken sear. I replaced the sear and all the springs and replaced the ejector pin. Now it is really spitting them out like it should. It was also a gooey mess even the mag was filthy as I had seen. As far as I can tell Bobs gun shop in Ar. is the only place that had the round type sear the is used in the La.
