guns design causes the bolt to squat when it recoils. this forces recoil down the grip and not in your shoulder. the gun tends to drop at the butt when this happens (a good thing.) make sure you have a sticky shirt and hold it tight in your shoulder.
try cleaning the mag tube. remove trigger group. knock the pin out the top of the tube and use a dowel to ram out the alloy plug from the receiver end. catch the spring or it will take off on you. your mag spring sounds weak. stretch it a little and reinstall. wolfe spring co should have one if you want to change it.
as bbl heats, metal expands. forearm bolt expands too. this loosens forearm, so owners tighen it. but then gun cools. cooling forearm bolt now crushes wood forearm, then splits forearm like a nut cracker because owner tightened bolt as it heated.
always store f.a. bolt loose.
after firing if forearm bolt did expand and you did have to tighten it, loosen immediately for it to cool. itll save you forearm from splitting.
