    Well, I wasn't going to go there...but since you brought it up. I did have one of those once.

    Bought it as a "Two Dollar Special" curiosity as I was checking out at an Army/Navy surplus store circa 1972. Wildly inaccurate, spit lead. Then wife tried to commit suicide with it in 1978. It wasn't even up to that simplest of tasks. So, after that I got rid of it. And her as well.

    hopefully through divorce and not though "sleeping with the fishes" kind of got rid of her.....

    I've tested mine with both the EC round, and it functions 100%. Unfortunately, over at The KTOG, there are several reports of rim-lock with that round. The recommended solution is usually EC in the pipe, EC as the top round in the mag, and the rest al Fiocchi. Works for me.....

    I'd guess that most folks know what "Rim lock" is, but for those that don't there's a good explanation of it here: http://www.vintagepistols.com/1907/32acp.htm

    For those that don't want to follow the link, a quick explanation is:
    .32 ACP is a semi-rimmed cartridge: meaning the rim diameter is larger than the case diameter. Rim lock occurs when the rim of a round gets trapped behind the rim of the round below it in the magazine. This prevents the trapped round from feeding when it is it's turn to do so.

    Rim lock can occur with any .32 ACP ammo, but it is more likely to occur when the overall length of the round is short enough (IE: most hollow points) that the individual rounds can move around (rear to front) in the magazine. In a correctly loaded magazine, the longer OAL of the FMJ usually prevents this movement. The rim lock prevention kit decreases the space (front to back) in a magazine to prevent this movement when rounds with shorter OAL are used.
    Here's a shot that shows a comparison of how FMJ and hollow points sit in an unmodified magazine:


    Kel Tec used to sell a kit that prevented rim lock, but it seems to have been dropped (at least I couldn't find it on their website).

    It consisted of a modified floor plate. modified follower and a spacer that went into the back of the magazine.
    Here's a photo that I posted some years back showing the components of the kit:

    Here's some Xtreme Cavitator in one of my mags with the kit installed:



    The kit may be out of production, but you can make a "Flyer Wire" that accomplishes the same task:
    http://www.1bad69.com/keltec/flyerwire.htm


    The kit and the wire work fine. The downside is FMJ won't work in magazines that have them installed.
    However, the Flyer Wire and the kit's spacer can be removed with little effort to allow the use of FMJ in the magazine. The other components work just as well with or without them.
    Myself, I have other magazines for FMJ use

    Regards,
    Greg
