Response to Disappointed with Crown magazine
I was at the desert dealer today with a magazine issue of another matter.
Your problem came up as well. It's the heavy pellets put stress on the wind
system. We tried 25gr with no problem. Loaded a .25 caliber with heavies and
the first three or four pellets took a tap to advance. As soon as the weight
of those pellets were out of the magazines it advanced fine. I asked about
winding the magazine spring one more turn and the risk there is the possibility
of deforming the pellet skirt with too quick of an advance.
I had already put an extra wind on one magazine and it's loading fine. The shot
groups are great so I'm hoping that allows me to continue with the heavies.
My Monsoon had the same issue in a .22. I'd bought an extra couple magazines and they
couldn't keep up with the semi auto load speed. I wound the magazine one turn and the problem
went away. The internet told me I'd purchased standard magazines and needed the ones
made for the cycling speed of the Monsoon. The extra wind was all the difference.
If you decide to wind it one turn be careful. Just keep pressure on the inner wheel
while the clear cover is off. You do have to tilt the inner wheel enough to clear the
stop of the magazine shell. The spring can try to get out. Just be slow and lift the
pellet wheel only enough to clear the stop.
I said "lift" I meant tilt. Try to lift it as little as possible.
I think that will be your fix.
