    Semi auto Action Arms uzi carbine .45 acp issues

    So i have a action arms model 45 uzi carbine, i have a 9mm conversion kit that it runs flawlessly with. However when i try to run it in 45 it will either have a failure to feed (round goes half way in chamber) and sometimes a light primer strike. The firing pin looks fine and im using an imi 16 round magazine. Any suggestions?

    what happens when you change magazines? is your ammo standard ball?

    Iíve 4x 45acp uzis (an IMI and a few us made) and they all run great with WWB ball ammo.

    Yeah im using regular fmj rounds i only have one factory imi magazine , the other is a pro mag (pos). With the factory magazine it will fail to feed 1 out of the 16 rounds most of the time. With the pro it will jam after every shot. Hoping to maybe find another factory mag at a gun show everywhere online is sold out. In the meantime im gonna try a new recoil spring.
