Garand clip ejecting prematurely
I finally got around to shooting my second M1 Garand today, and it had an annoying problem. It would eject the clip, along with the last remaining live round, after the 7th shot. It did this with every clip I fired today, 6 in total. Twice of the 6 times, it attempted to eject the clip after the 6th shot, causing the 7th live round to "stovepipe".
Do you have any suggestions as to the cause or remedy for this?
