Gents,

I bought a 91/38 calvary carbine rebarreled to 7.62 x 39 and have been working through the process of getting it to function reliably. I replaced the follower spring and get better upward tension on the rounds. After successfully feeding and extracting the first round, however, the clip latch prevents the second round from rising within the clip/magazine. I have to press the clip latch release button to allow the second round to rise, and then it functions as it should.

Any suggestions as to why this is happening and how to correct it?

thanks,

geoff

You have the only 7.62x39 conversion I have heard of; you will probably have to solve your unique problems yourself.

That said, carefully removing material from the front of the clip latch may give you the clearance you need.

Would like to see picts of the breech, and the magazine with rounds in place!

Gents,

I'm not sure how it relates, but squeezing the open portion of the clips together to get a tighter fit on the rounds also had the effect of solving the problem of the clip latch catching the second round, or at least it did for a short firing session yesterday.

I've added a couple of photos, including one showing the rounds in place as Mr. Voigt requested.

Regards,

geoff

There have been actually quite a few conversions to x39. Seen a couple pictures of one where a single stack AK magazine was used.
