The Triple K has a shallow cut out while the O.E. had a deeper cut out on it. This was catching the round getting stripped off, kicking the bullet up instead of forward. Any way, I just wanted to mention the cutout on the front of the mag, that might be a possible issue.
There is a post here on TFF, just look for MAB model D feed problem. There are pics showing the problem I had. http://www.thefirearmsforum.com/show...light=mab+feed
Hope this might help,
This is helpful. I was at the range today, and they actually had a star model D in. I was able to use it's mag, to test, but still ran into issues. Now, the casing isn't being pulled from the barrel by the extractor. I might try and order a new extractor, or bend mine in a bed to see if that works.
Does anyone know if the F.I model had a spring behind the extractor? Mine doesn't, or it didn't when I pulled it out. It's bow shaped so I figured it didn't need one.
