Hi, finsihed reassembly of rifle today, cleaned and oiled, and loaded 3 bullets to try it out. None would come out of the magazine into the chamber. I finaly noticed that the magazine tube was not exactly lined up with the feeding mehcanism, it is sort of rotate to one side. I tried lossening the tension screw and resetting the aim and got it to work for 2 or 3 rounds at a time but then it would resume it's old position. There is a little bit of play in the magazine tube even when the tension screw is tight. Does this mean that the hole that the tension screw goes into in the magazine is a little worn and oversized or is a little play normal? You can also move the magazine ever so slightly front or back, whihc is how ti got it to feed a few rounds but not reliably. Do I need to get a new magazine or does anyone have any advice?
Thanks,
