I went to the range today. Had problems I never had before. The Guatemalan that worked fine beofre had a few extraction failures. No its not the extractor, just took care of that last week, and 200 rounds of this stuff worked flawless. Today couldnt get more than 20 rounds to go through it without a failure.

Then I tried the Wolf, another I hadnt had problems with the week prior. That stuff would extract no problem, but would not feed. Really POs me!

Dont get it. I tried a 30 round USGI mag instead (was unsing a straight 20), shot 30 rounds of Guat without a problem.Bbut strange enough is that last week I shot the strainght 20 without a single jam up.

PS Please no "thats because wolf is crap" answers.

Was it the Wolf M193?

Sounds like maybe an equipment issue and not an ammo issue, perhaps. Check the gas key to make sure its not loose and your gas rings. Just a suggestion.

Agreed. Sounds like the weapon.

Look for a blown primer stuck inside your gas key.

I know its the gun, didnt think it was ammo.

Checked, there is no primer. Why would it work fine before but not now? I had removed the front sight (CMP type), and reinstalled since last time. I figured it might be the gas system, posssibly the gas port not lined up right. But then why would the low powered Wolf eject but not feed, and the high powered Guat feed but not eject?
