    I think I may have screwed up..

    I had shot about 5 or 6  pellets and then pulled the magazine to reload. I reloaded the magazine and now it will only shoot the first 5  pellets before it will not "cycle." The cocking lever will not close because it hits  the pellet holder in the magazine.

    Any suggestions to repair or is a replacement the only solution?

    Thanks guys for any input / direction.

    if i understand the problem correctly, i would remove all the pellets from the mag and start over.

    I think I fixed it. I removed the CS screw in the top the magazine and disassembled the magazine and removed all the pellets… I pulled out the spring and "notched" pellet holder looked for debris… nothing,,,,,I put the spring( leg)  back into the ~.3 mm diameter pocket hole and somehow got it back together… loaded the 13 rd mag and shot it empty. Reloaded the magazine and now I'm ready to kill some birds at my dove field.. Whew!!! was stressed on that one… $59 for replacement? My cousin used to say, " that's got profit written all over it" …

    Maybe it's the  "FX tax?"

    Steppenwulf has it right. Push the remaining pellets out, then reload. I have a Streamline also, and my sister did the same thing while we were plinking one day. I think it involves inadvertently turning the clear cover the wrong way. Keep something in your shooting gear box to push the pellets out with. Hope you are enjoying your rifle. Mine is a 25 caliber. One of the best buys I ever made!

    I should have explained the problem better. The cocking lever would not close because the "pellet probe" would hit the "notched" pellet holder inside the magazine.. I could not push any pellets outs. no way to get them to do so.. Only way was to remove the clear  cover..

    Not sure what happened.. Maybe the magazine is designed to shoot empty before reloading? Can someone confirm this?
