Mossberg 715T Magazine
hello, I have recently purchased a Mossberg 715T 22lr rifle and 3 extra 25 rd magazines. After a good cleaning the rifle cycles flawlessly. My problems began when I tried to rapid fire, each 25 rd mag would hang up or I mean the bolt at least would hand up at about the 11 or 12th round in the mag. It was consistent with each mag. Is this just because they are new or can I take them apart and do something to the spring or what. Any details would be most appreciative. Oh, and I am using CCI blazer 40gr cartridges. Thank you for you time.

Try loading the mag to capacity or at least 20 rounds. Over the course of a month empty them and reload them a couple times a week. I was told it breaks the spring in. I did it and I ran 4 mags through mine rapid fire with 0 problems

Thank you lovegun, I will surely give that a try.

WOW where did you get the extra mags from? I've been looking for months for extras. Good luck with the gun I love mine.

No problem man. Make sure to keep them loaded when not emptying them. The key is to keep the pressure on the spring. I guess they're pretty stiff from the factory so they want to push too many rounds when the bolt loads another round causing the jamming issues
