Just dumped a gen 1 Ti 7mm-08 into a Manners EH-3 w/ PTG steath dbm. Idea is to eak as much coal as possible. My only beef is the feeding is damn stiff. Anyone have some tricks to smooth things up? Will take a better look tonight to see what's what. I'm not sure if the mag might be a touch too tight up against the reciever, or if the mag lips just need a kiss of emery paper to smooth them out? Looking forward to sorting this out. The thing handles like a wand.

My first concern was where caseheads ride in relation,to the bolt's nose. If that is too proud,or the 'lips drag the bolt's underside...simply shorten the mag latch a CH.

If'n you like the mag's feedlip geometry,that's your move.

No thang.

Which Make/Model of magazine(s)?............

I check pillar length,butt nekked...so I can see/feel WTF.



Same goes timing 'latch lock length and then I'll shorten the mag release,often replacing or adding a second spring. I like my shit 100% fucking POSITIVE.

Have seen me number mags too............

I find steel more forgiving,due it being malleable.

Once you look,you'll see the woe and it'll be an easy fix.

You'll never regret going AICS DBM................

It looks like a light weight, handy dandy platform... Interested to see how it shoots.
