    Range Report-Won't Stay in Semi

    Took the Jaws M10 out to the range today. Ran flawlessly with both Lage uppers, the .45 and 9mm. When shooting in semi the selector would magically rotate itself to full auto. Any way to stop this?

    Simple solution is to pull the trip and forego semi function.

    Or you could maybe replace/tweek the FCG retention spring as it sounds like it may not be fully engaging the selector notch.

    Reform the selector/sear pin spring so it puts more downward pressure on it.

    Mine used to do that. Magically rotates to full auto.
    I just assumed it was reading my mind and went with it

    These things have a semi-auto feature?

    Thanks for the replies. Yes the long selector spring had almost no pressure on the selector. Bent it as bet I could so now have good pressure but the selector stops at 4 and 10 o'clock, not 3 and 9, so ordered a new spring.

    I get that it is a PITA but pull the fire control so you can remove the spring and bend it. You will have to remove the fire control to replace the spring. If the spring is already on the way, use the new spring to help you reshape the old spring.

    I agree to use the new spring as a template to reshape the old one.

    Use the corrected old one while saving the new one for the future.
