Its not the mag. It only happens when the rounds are live. If it is the gas block is it major to fix like taking it to a gun smith or can i fix it myself. And what needs to be done?

I'd suggest cleaning the gas system, you may have some fouling or jacket material obstructing the gas port, Ruger went to great lengths to fix this problem early on, Brownells Gun parts also markets replacement gas port orfices.Brownells Search : Rifle Parts : Gas System Parts - World's Largest Supplier of Firearm Accessories, Gun Parts and Gunsmithing Tools - BROWNELLS

i just bought a ruger mini 14 tactical rifle and when i took it to the range it wouldn't load the next round after being shot once. as I'm reading these topics i figure its the gas system correct?
