    so is the tab pointing down/back? or does it have an up angle on it?

    thats a weird thing to have in a magazine.

    It's just bent back into the opening of the magazine a bit, here's a few pics from someone on the R51 forum.

    Too cold here to fire it, but got some time to really examine and test cycle it. The Tulammo 115 gr I was testing it with is significantly longer than the Blazer Brass 115 I have on hand. The Tulammo fills the mag front to back, the Blazer leaves a gap. As does the 124gr HSTs I loaded it with. The shorter rounds should clear the tab better, I would think.

    Discovered why it is hard to rack and jams the first round when chambering on a loaded magazine. The breech block is cut higher just behind the breechface, a lot of guns are like this as it allows the mag to be inserted without compressing the top round as it seats. On other guns, however, there is usually an angled "feed rail" that gradually gets taller as it reaches the breechface. This compresses the top round as the slide goes back, and engages the top round to shove it out on the forward stroke. Remington decided it didn't need that, so they left a full width at the breechface and made an almost vertical transition behind it to the cutaway section. This leaves essentially a flat bladed screwdriver shape sticking down right at the breechface. Pull the slide back on a full mag, that lip pushes the top round down and then catches in the extractor groove of the cartridge! It actually acts like the slide lock is engaged unless you force it past that point. It also pushes the cartridge forward in a nose dive.

    Only way to load it without issues is lock the slide back, insert loaded magazine, drop slide. MP5 style! Fed the top round every time with the HSTs. So if you are carrying it, no condition 3 allowed.

    When reassembling from a field strip, it is possible to insert the slide stop above the spring, which causes it to engage every time the slide moves back. Have to make sure it's below or you have a slow single shot repeater...

    Supposed to be in the 50s next week, probably rain 24/7 though.
