Finally, there’s a way to train to clear a Type 3 malfunction without faking it.
When the rhythmic click-back, click-bang at the range stops with a click and no bang, you look at your ejection port and see the breech isn’t closed and there’s a mess of brass in there—that’s a double-feed, otherwise known as a Type 3 Malfunction.
It’s fairly uncommon, and occurs when the empty cartridge from your last shot isn’t properly ejected, and the nose of the next round jambs it as it’s being fed from the magazine into the gun.
