    7.62x39 Mag tips and tricks

    Seems like a bunch if us are in the same boat so lets post any fixes for our mag issues here as a quick trouble shooting guide.

    My 2 ASC mags ran great until yesterday when the rounds started to FF. It seems that the tips of the rounds are getting hung up on the edge of the mag when the bolt slams forward. The hollow point Tullammo seem to be the worst.
    So far today I switched to brass WWB ammo ant turned the gas down to 1 in hopes of maybe slowing down the bolt a little. Figured they wouldent rock forward as much and might not get cought. This has worked so far, both mags fed with no failures but I only had 100 rounds. Going to run some crap ammo threw it on wed if I get time.
    What else can be done?
    Also what mags will work besides ASC? I am finding some mixed up info on what has been used in the past and how they were fixed.

    Check out the hammer tuning of 7.62x39 on you tube from another post.
    Thanks guys

    So far I have had no more jams with the WWB ammo from Walmart. Maybe just turning down the gas was enough? Haven't been able to find any hollow point stuff to try yet, that will be the real test.

    Come on I know others have had trouble!

    I haven't had trouble yet, but I appreciate you starting this thread. I love the 7.62x39 caliber and as long as we keep these mags working, we're good. This caliber is the reason I bought the XCR.

    I did SS's fix and found it to help a lot. Still have a nose dive once in a while, but way better.
    hope for the best, prepare for the worst, and make hay while the sun shines!

    Yeah I got an email from lcjwholesalestore and ammosc saying my shipment of them is delayed to a fault in their tooling. They are fixing it and will be shipping soon. We'll see what shows up at the door.

    Yeah my mags from asc were delivered to my home address, problem is I don't live at home currently, I'm in Texas. Have to wait until i have my DD214 and pull my truck full of stuff back into the driveway in KC before I can check them. Is anyone on here in the KC area? I'll be back home in a couple months, for good.

    Here is a 7.62x39 mag trick. Why don't we all give magpul a call tomorrow and beg them to make a super reliable 20 and 30 round mag. If we all call, that would be like 30 or 40 phone calls--how can they resist! Just being a little sarcastic, but really everyone start hounding them and you never know.
