    Well, ordered new mag and back to the range with it and different ammo. Same issue every time. Fires, ejects casing but won't chamber a new round - so frustrating. Now to find out where to send it off too

    Have you tried only loading (2) rounds into the mag? First gets chambered manually, the 2nd for the autoloading action.

    This would be a test to see if weight of column is a factor upon the spring.

    Super fast turnaround from Magnum research - now hopefully the gun is fixed. Here is what they said :
    "removed burrs from bolt - adjusted slide catch and checked throughout pistol. Test fired 14 rounds 300 gr hornady"
    Any thoughts ?

    My thought is for a company that charges $1500 for a one off novelty firearm they have some shitty QC.

    Keep us posted.

    1. Weak mag spring. The slide rides over the next cartridge, and does so pretty fast. If the mag spring doesn't push the cartridge up after the slide has cleared the rear of the cartridge and starts moving forward - it wont nab the cartridge.

    2. The slide isn't cycling back far enough past the rear of the next cartridge.

    3. Limp wristing. If the slide cycles all the way, and if the mag spring is strong, inertia of the recoil can work against the mag spring. This issue tends to magnify as cartridge weight in the magazine increases.

    --------

    Mix in the Desert Eagle with 1-3 above..

    #3 magnifies #1 substantially due to the overall weight of .44mag and .50AE cartridges. If the spring is weak, it will have a harder time pushing up more mass.

    With the DE, it likes hotter cartridges to cycle all the way(#2). Heavy slide, heavy recoil springs. If I remember correctly, they are rated at 25lbs EACH for the 44mag. Possibly more for the .50AE. Most commercially available .50AE shouldn't have the #2 issue unless the gas port is restricted or there is something causing drag on the cycling action.

    So, I'd lean towards the mag springs, make sure the gas action is clean, and that there aren't any burs in the action causing additional drag.
    :/ lol
