Brass over bolt in a Tavor and a broken Perazzi shotgun spring.

I was helping out on the range when one of the Range Officers asked me to help clear a jammed Tavor.  The owner was attempting to use a Surefire 60 round mag and had a brass over bolt malfunction and could not clear it.

What surprised me is when I easily cleared the visible jammed round the action wouldn’t cycle.  Turns out there was a second live round jammed up in there.  The follow bound in the Surefire 60 round mag allowing multiple rounds up into the action.  How they got up and back in the action I don’t know.   For any one who reads this who has used a Tavor and Surefire mags, how well has it worked for you?

 

A friend of mine showed me this broken spring from his Perazzi shotgun.

This spring for the lower barrel of a Perazzi shotgun reached the end of its service life and was replaced.  Fortunately this particular shotgun came with two spares of this spring so the owner can keep it ready for competition.  It is good to have spare parts for firearms you depend on. Often it is even better to have a complete working spare firearm.
