    M1 Thompson or M1 Carbine?

    The Thompsons are notorious for it, nearly always a magazine problem.

    Have you tried different mags? What ammo have you had the problem with?

    I had the same problem with mine using the factory mag. I don't know what was up with it, but I took it apart to see if there was anything inside that could mess with it. There wasn't anything, so i put it back together and its functioned flawlessly since. Only thing I can think is maybe the spring was binding up some. I was using the American Eagle stuff, and I know it wasn't the ammo 'cause it eats that stuff like candy now.

    I would try that and see what it does.
