    Disassemble the magazine and stretch the mag spring. Most of the time this fixes the problem.

    Dry firing a semi auto won't hurt the weapon any more than dry chambering will. I'm a gunsmith
    and we all dry fire weapons to safely check for proper function. If you worry about hurting the

    They dropped it. But their intention is to use it as a chipping block. They sill get
    legislation on mag capacity and some registry laws. You will think that we won and let them
    have a small victory. E...
