So i completely love by M1, except for one thing.

I forget the name of it, its the bar that lifts the shell up and guides it into the barrel, Whenever i put shells in the mag and i try to take my thumb out it gets jammed in between the end of it and the receiver.

If you understand what im saying Is there anyway to fix this?

Try holding your thumb side ways instead of flat against the lifter thingy. Use the knuckel of your thumb to push up while pushing the shell in. I don't have any problems with mine, but I shure will be glad when it is broken in more. Not enough rounds through it yet!

Thanks, pushing up with my knuckle seems to work quite well :P

The lever that lifts the cartridge to the breech is usually known as the carrier. Some manufacturers call it something else like elevator.

How I load the Super90s is to reach over with a weak hand finger or thumb and depress the carrier near the rear while loading the cartridge. Doing the knuckle trick usually wears the skin on my knuckle after a while.

HKSW, that's the same way I do it, works a lot better for me.

Send your lifter to c-rum and have him weld it up. Jeff has done 3 for me so far. Outstanding work. No complaints at all.

Jeff only charges maybe $30-35. Well worth it. You cant even tell he welded on it.

I am sending him a lifter off my new M2 this afternoon.
