Those bullets have a flat nose. Sometimes a problem with new guns. Keep us posted on the new mags.

I slingshot all my pistols, except for my SCCY's. Pony Soldier is right here...at least this has been my experience with my SCCY guns. :shock:

Try to stay positive.
Sounds like they might send a new barrel next.

Per response from economod - Yep "New Barell" seems to be what you need. That should do it for you. Hey, nothing is 100% in this world. Have a positive outlook with this and you'll appreciate the results.

I'm not upset at all. I have no doubts Sccy will make it right just going to take some patience. I still love the weight and size of this pistol and think it'll be my every day carry once i get it running.

So I got a call today from Jason. I explained my problem and he was certain new mags would fix the problem. Once I told him I had the 2 original mags plus 4 more that were sent to me via mail, he had me try adjusting the feed lip on the mag. Worked like a charm. He was kind enough to let me keep all 6 mags and once I adjusted them all it left me with 6 working mags and not a single failure to feed. To say I'm stoked is a huge understatement. Great customer service, the other manufacturers could definitely learn from this one.

Opened the front part of the feed lip on each side ever so slightly. Worked on all six mags.

Works both ways. I have a Bersa Thunder that loved to jam the last round nose up. I. Closed the mag lips slightly and no more problems.
