    CZ 550 magazine issues

    Any ideas what is going wrong. I have just bought a CZ 550 in 243 and took it foxing last night, the first Fox I shot resulted in the magazine dropping out of it well and out of the truck window. Thought it was me not fully locating it and it was fine on the next fox but fox number three resulted in the same thing. The gun behaved when I zeroed it and I look to have located the mag firmly so is this a fault on the gun and how can I fix it ?

    Does the catch that holds the mag in actually operate or has it become a little sticky from neglect?

    Probably not difficult to identify the problem and remedy it. Sounds like a sticky catch, missing/weak spring or worn part. Why not just strip the rifle and have a look as it's hardly likely that anyone will be able to sort it for you from the little information you have supplied.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Job for the weekend then, think a week spring is the answer as everything else feels free and the gun does not look to have been used heavily, thanks for the replies.

    Just one other thing, look at the latching point on the mag. Is it clean and not crudded up?
