Default Clips with mis-feed problem

Has anyone ever found a fix other than tumbling these enblocs?

If you are talking about these rough Greek clips read somewhere folks lightly sanded them with fine grade sandpaper. My Garand does not like the Greek clips either.

AFAIK Greek did not manufacture clips. I've had problems with "SF" clips which are French made that came with my HXP 80. They eject prematurely with ammo still left in the clips.

garandlover, Try taking a wire brush to the notches in the clip where it engages to clip latch. I have not had any problems with clips myself but thinking about it, there can be only three thing that would make the clip eject early.
1. worn clip latch, 2. weak clip latch spring and 3. the notch in the clip is too shallow , either not stamped deep enough or parkerized to heavily.

Since you have not had problems with other clips in you rifle(s) , I'd go with number 3. Like I said , I have not had this problem myself, I wish I had one of these clips to experiment with. Eddie

Default Misfeeds

garandlover, I've had trouble with the SF clips too. I found that if I put a drop of gun oil on each flat surface of the enbloc and rub with steel wool it really smooths out the rough finish they have. They work better after that.

I've not had any huge problems with any clips in any of my Garands. However, I've found that if I briskly rub new ones on my denim-clad thigh, it knocks down the park a bit, making them insert easier.
