I just got my Saiga 223 and I got a couple Surefire Mags to go with it. When I loaded them up, they didn't want to seat with the bolt forward (only when loaded, empty mags snap right in). Is that the way they are supposed to work? Also, the last shot hold open (a feature I like and a big reason I shelled out for the Surefires) worked but when I dropped the mag the bolt snapped forward. Pain in the a** because now I had to hold it back to put the next one in.
The factory mag worked great. No hold open but it loaded easily and snapped home with the bolt shut.
Is this the way the Surefire mags are supposed to work? Do they need fitting? What's the deal?
