    I have an AMT AutoMAG II (.22 mag) that I bought new. I shot it a few times, and tossed it into the back of the safe in frustration. The follower in the magazine hangs at various different levels because the spring's in the front, and doesn't push up evenly. Basically, it's useless as it is because it won't pick up a shell that isn't pressed against the bottom of the slide.

    I've tried deburring the follower, and the weld seam inside the magazine, but didn't have any change. I've also tried greasing the follower; same results.....none.

    Does anybody know if this problem is limited to my gun, or is this a ready feature of this model?

    Is there a fix for this? Would a different brand mag work better?

    Your spring might be to long and have to much tension on it, pushing the fallower at a cocked angle as it feeds.

    I have same gun and 2 extra mags and have not had a problem with any.

    Shop around and see if you can find another mag.

    Is/could the spring be in backwards? I have the same gun w/2 mags and have never had a problem with it after about 3,000 rounds. Hope you cure the problem because I find it is a fine semi auto pistol.
