    Without pictures that will be difficult. Are you sure you got the correct magazine for the gun?

    A few possible causes.

    Those little buggers where made in a time when HPs where not around and they tend to feed Ok with FMJs and little else. What kind of ammo are you trying to run throught it?

    The recoil spring is probably older than you and rather tired. It might need a new spring to have anough power to push rounds into the chamber. Also if the magazine is old the mag spring might also be weak and not be holding the rounds correctly and they may be nosediving when the slide pushes them forward.

    Lst but not least, those little guns took a boatload of handfitting in the old days so the tolerances are ALL OVER The place on fit/finish etc specially when you account for wear. You might want to try a few different mags until you find one or two that'll work Ok.

    Haha, like I said, not trying to be a jerk. Just a big ole pet peeve of mine, and seems to be one that many people have among the gun community.
