View Full Version : POF 6.8

I just got this last week.
I shot about 200 rounds.
Towards the end of each mag the last one or two, hang up.
I have to drop the mag and reload.
Is this a break-in or mag problem?

Are you using 6.8 mags or 5.56 mags?

I am using the mags that came with the rifle.
There are no markings on the mags.
How can I tell the difference?
THank you.

6.8 mags have shallower indentions. You can try prying the feed lips out slightly and see if that helps.

They may have shipped you a 5.56 mag, try it with a new 6.8 mag to be sure it's not a mag problem.

Was your rifle starting to run dry? I had an issue with that, and a shot of lube on the bolt fixed it right up.

Thanks for asking.

I had a similar issue. Bought new mags and problem has vanished.

I think that these are by far the best mags out there. Extremely robust and flawless design:

6.8 mags have a radical curve to it than 5.56.My friend uses precisionreflex mags in his 6.8. and they work great.

Just a thought....but 90% of the time any semi-auto FTF's - its the mag.
