Here is my Colt M16 SPR..I tried it today and yes I am having some feeding problems, but I can figure it out sooner or later..
I was shooting at 20yds and I can get it to group decently but Its being a PITA right now, I don't remember my other colt/umarex that I use to own to be this problematic, I will have to call colt/umarex and see what can they do..I traded the Savage that i just got, I'm just not a bolt-action kinda guy, the good part i made extra $45 on the trade..easy on the colt/umarex bashing now hehehe..FYI that savage was a rediculously accurate rifle..

What ammo are you using, odds are you need to find something the Colt likes. My basic M4 version loves Federal value pack 36 grain and hates Remington Golden Bullet.

Oh have you adjusted the standard/high velocity screw to match your ammo?

Nice rifle! No bashing from me, I love my Colt/Walther! :D

quentin I was using federal bulk packs,the blue box and the 550 bulk. I already called UMAREX and I'm just waiting for the email so I can print it and send it back to them, hopefully they can fix it becs I really like the look and feel of this rifle..I'll probably get some 20 rounder mags because i'm not to crazy how the 30 rounders look like:D.

I have a umarex m4 ops, and I had problems with feeding in the
begining, out of the box, I adjusted the bolt speed, tightend it 5 turns or so, and now i dont have any problems, the grouping is good, but have an occasional outsider. I have been using cci and blazers?
ps could you make a shooting movie? I really like the 16spr, I was thinking of
getting one and making a mark 12 (spr) out of it with a good scope and a bipod, and a possible green laser. but if it is not shooting well i'll heve second thoughts. also, the rear iron sight might not calibrate correctly for a 22, as far as grouping accuracy.
