4) The new High Standards are built to much tighter tolerances than the old ones, and may need breaking in.
The factory recommends firing 500 rounds of high velocity ammo through a new gun, followed by a thorough cleaning. Your pistol was test fired at the factory with one of your magazines, so one of them should work a bit better than the others. The front lips on the magazine need to be symetrical with the center of the magazine, and roughly 0.236" +/- .003 apart.
The case of the cartridge should just slip between the two lips, with no appreciable drag.
If you have to adjust the lips, the best thing is to borrow a dial caliper from a machinist, and proceed gradually.
Working the feed lips back and forth can break them.

From: [email protected](Doug White) Newsgroups: Subject: Re: High Standard .22 Feed Problems - Help!Date: -0500 Several suggestions come to mind that may help.A combination of them may be neccessary for proper operation.1) Some ammo has really gunky lube, and lots of it. The Victor was designed as a target competition gun, where only 5 rounds are loaded at a time.Enough that the effective length of the round could put a lot of lube of the inside front of the magazines. 2) Pick an ammo that uses a minimal amount of a hard wax type lubricant. The magazine will hold 10 rounds because the grip is that deep, and many will work that way.Until you get it broken in and working right, I'd stick with 5.
