    Mopar, where are you located?
    Call the local shops to see who has mags.
    Drive to local shop and try mag.

    I'm sure Wanstalls has them.

    Or bring it to me, with about 100 test rounds. I'll fix 'er for ya.

    Ever shoot at Sylvester Rd?

    Do they happen to have an extra magazine you can try?

    So i've put maybe 100 rounds through it now and i've taken a closer look. The bolt actually is hitting the follower stopping me from pulling it back. It does it with all mags, a buddy of mine lent me some 10 rounders and they do the same thing.

    Looks like you should contact Wolverine for some warranty work.

    I have seen this before. Here is how to fix it yourself:
    Collapse the buttstock, close the bolt, and insert the empty mag. Grab hold of the charge handle and pogo the rifle on the buttstock (like you were clearing a stuck round)... There is a square corner on the follower that will get smoothed off. Hand cycle it a bunch once you can get the bolt to open on the empty mag.

    So i decided against trying that and instead took into to the gun store and tried a mag out of one of our guns and it still doesn't work. So im thinking the mag sits too high in the gun

    I he mag follower may be bent and coming up to far !! Happens to me with an internal mag I have if I don't put the internal box in!! the top of the box is shaped to prevent the follower from coming up and hitting the bolt !! You mote than likely have a bent mag where the bullet sits waiting to be loaded! !

    thanks Jason!
