donbryant993 Posted December 21, 2011 Share Posted December 21, 2011 New STI 140mm tube, Grams 11 coil spring and follower set, Bolen 4mm base pad. When I initially assembled it, I could stuff 22 rounds in it (not reloadable) and was noticing when I would stuff 22 in I was denting some of the cases of the cartridges (another issue altogether) When I took it outside for testing I was finding it would lock back with one or two rounds still in the mag, which I expected. So I did my homework and learned how to tune the follower by following the instructions on Brazos page to make the slide not lock back on the last round. It worked great. All rounds cycle reliably and when its done the mag is empty and the slide not locked back. HOWEVER.... Now I only get 21 rounds in the mag (not reloadable) and 20 reloadable.. what gives? The amount of material I removed on the follower was very minimal. I can't for the life of me figure out why I lost one round capacity.
