Please reread, Jim

[QUOTE=jimbobborg;4968864]Since most people on here don't read the whole thread

Jim:
I read all of the earlier posts, as stated in my post.

I have a LWRC DI, and I have fired about 2,000 rounds through it. This is a new, recent issue.

I did not have this issue previously.
I know that you need to use some force, but you shouldn’t have to use all of your might to seat the mag.

I have been advised to try other mags, as some rifles do not pair well with certain mags. I am going to try that, but am doubtful, because this is after a couple thousand rounds with these mags. I have taken the upper off and observed that the the latch engages when an empty mag is inserted, but when a loaded mag is inserted, it often does not. Will take it to the range and try to replicate.
Thanks for your responses, everyone.

Bolt not locking back after last round.

In thinking back, you might have something. The bolt must have not locked back. I will go back and check.

Thanks.

Pmags will swell, especially when they're loaded with .50 Beowulf. They'll swell enough to where you can't physically force the mag home, open or closed bolt - but again, that's when loaded with .50 Beowulf, and they've been sitting fully loaded for some time.

In the caliber it was designed for, I haven't had any issues/drag/sticking when seating the mags - even after being stored to capacity for weeks/months at a time.

Went to the range today, expecting to replicate the problem with the mag not catching. Of course, the issue did not arise today. I did not have to use a lot of force for the full mag to click in place. Go figure.
