Spanish FR 7

Post by INGarand »

I have a Spanish FR 7 Mauser in 7.62 that won't feed from the magazine. I have tried different spring with no luck. It seems the round doesn't come up enough to engage the bolt completely and the bolt stops short of loading the round. It will single load without the follower. This rifle doesn't have a spacer in the mag well. Could that be the problem?

Could always try putting a bit of wood in there to see if that does the trick. If not maybe the feed lips need to be adjusted a little? I'm just guessing here, sorry. :/
