Walther P38 problem
Today I took my new (to me) Walther P38 out to shoot. It's a post-war, alloy frame, in very nice shape. I loaded both mags, everything seemed to work smoothly, inserted mag, aimed pulled trigger, first round went off (and ejected) perfectly. The slide came to rest part way back with the next round sticking nose up into the top of the chamber, and the rest of the rounds in the mag were nose down. I pulled the mag out, and it was all I could do to remove the top round, and the others seemed stuck. I finally got them out with some work and a small screwdriver. I tried the second mag. It did exactly the same thing. It was almost as if when the second round moved forward the back end of it turned down and jammed the rest of the rounds nose down. Any idea what could cause this?
