I have a 1903a3 in 30-06. When I shoot it, it feeds the first 10 rounds fine, but after it warms up, it will not pick up a round from the left side and I have to remove the round and manually work the bolt on an empty chamber before it will pick up the next round and put it in the chamber. This will continue until I let it cool down for 15-20 minutes, it will work flawlessly for the next 5 rounds, then back to jamming on me.

ANY IDEAS?

Check the floor plate / magazine junction at the recievier. You may have to remove some wood from the stock to close this area.

If none of the above suggestions does it for you, you might want to try posting your problem over on www.jouster.com. There's a board there specializing in the 1903's. If you find the answer (here or there), let us know what the problem was. It sounds strange.

PROBLEM FIXED! A new magazine spring was the solution. I fired ~100 rounds over the weekend without the first jam.
