Here is a list of some questions that we get asked often. If what you need isn't here, shoot us an email using the contact us form.

- My semi auto shotgun is not cycling?

Try shooting at least 5rds. of quality high brass 3" shells.

- What style magazines do the MKX3, ANG4, NK1, and BLP take?

1919 Style magazines.

All current production shotguns use Benelli pattern chokes!! (Except Lynx Models)

- What magazines do the PX9 use?

P226 style magazines.



- Can my weapon fire +P rated ammunition?
Yes it can but be aware that +P can cause more recoil than the average FMJ. Over time it could cause parts to wear out a bit quicker than normal.

- Why is my 1911 jamming and having feeding issues? Causes?
1. Improper grip
2. Ammunition types, find what your 1911 likes. Hollow Points may cause jamming, find a more rounded type.
3. Cheap aftermarket magazines and cause feeding issues. Also extended mags can cause issues as well. We like Mec-Gar and Check-Mate.
4. Improper cleaning and under lubrication.

- Do I need to break in my firearm?
Yes it lets everything run smoother and helps to become more familiar with your firearm.
1911s 300 rounds of ball ammunition and semi-auto shotguns 30 to 50 rounds of heavy load shot shells.

- 1911 Break in procedure:
Congratulations on your new 1911 from SDS Imports! It is important to follow these steps for proper break in and function of your new 1911.
First disassemble the new 1911 and clean it really well to remove the factory oil and any other contaminants inside the weapon. After cleaning the 1911 use a high grade oil or grease to lubricate the firearm then take your weapon and run about 300 rounds of brass ball ammunition (fmj) though it to help smooth things out. Remember 1911s require a good proper grip to fire correctly and reduce jamming or feeding issues. ( They can and will have feeding and jamming issues if you do not have a proper correct grip!!!)


What gas port setting should I use for my Lynx 12

There are four gas port settings on the gas regulator (0-3). 1 is the smallest gas port setting, and 3 is the largest. <0> is the locked position and manual operation of the bolt is required while using this setting. What port you should use depends on the type of ammunition. If using high velocity or magnum shot, you can reduce to port 2 or even 1. If you determine the recoil energy is not adequate to consistently eject shells, adjust the gas port to a the next higher gas setting number.

Please note that these are suggested settings. The settings may vary based on the brand and type of ammunition.
