Ok,, we have heard of that occasionally. Usually a good cleaning,, and the occasional stoning of any burrs, etc took care of those issues. Some folks opted to replace the factory parts with parts from Volquartsen. My one MKII has not had any issue,, nor has the several MKI's & MKII's.

10% to 20% stovepipe is horrible. I'm glad you worked it out.

what really bothered me is this did not happen as often with slow bullseye type shooting, even with rem. gb's. which are supposed to be the worst.
but at rapid fire at steel plate matches it was a jam queen shooting mini mags. was really emberassing to myself and the gun considering it was 620$. the buckmarks ate my lunch that day fellas!LOL!
i learned how to tweak the mark 3 to make it run right. and have even fixed a few for others because they gave up on them.
