Ah - I've seen a problem like that before.  I started out hunting with a bolt action 410 as a kid - had a three round box magazine that I rarely used because it had a tendency to drop out, especially on firing.  It had a leaf spring on the back side of the box (inside the stock's magazine well), and recoil was enough to compress the spring and release the mag.  Don't know what kind of catch/latch/retention mechanism your friend has in their rifle, but maybe a spring is broken or has broken through the seat or ?? and the latch is moving under recoil?

mad- you would think cooper would be smarter/ better than that for the price. I thought the same though. how could cooper make that big of a mistake? there is a muzzle break, so the recoil should be minimal

Yeah, I would agree, but stuff happens.  Doesn't take much of a defect in a spring to cause it to fail.  Just tossing out things he might want to look at, especially if the gun only recently started dropping mags.

I generally try to fix things myself, fixing a firearm can be tricky most of the time. If I purchased the firearm used, then it is up to me to either pay to have it fixed or fix it myself....I have purchased about half the firearms that I own (i will check to see the exact percentage here). And if your firearm is more than 10 to 15 years old, like most of mine are, then roll up your sleeves and do the job yourself...If you own a new rifle, be sure to read the owners manual to see exactly how long your rifle is under warranty before you start to tackle the problem!!

I have one Cooper that I was thinking the extractor was bad when I got it, but come to find out after tearing it completely down that the rings were to low and the spent round kept hitting the scope before having a chance to clear the action. I went from med to high rings and it fixed the problem....but that is the only problem that I had with my Coopers so far....

Bo If I can fix something I will.  However My Remington 1100 started jamming.  I knew what it was, the ejection lever.  I just did not have the tools or skill to make the repair. So I tool it over to your old friend Dave and he "Staked" the ejection lever back in place. It is good as new.

Is it just me or has Sig Sauer been advertising more lately? notice that the BDX (Ballistic Data Exchange) has been advertising more??

I have several (about 5) of their products and like them all but one, but other than that they seemed to be OK with their pricing and market....
