In response to a couple of the above ;
1. CCI Velocitor is what the gun had issues with. I've used CCI Mini Mags for all my other 22's without issue.
2. In reading, others have also had issue with CCI in this particular model gun. My assumption is the casing must have slightly different specs than some of the other ammo that is functioning fine in the gun.
3. I took the gun apart today and cleaned it the best I could. Someone else had mentioned about cleaning under the ejection star so I paid particular attention to that.
With all that being said, I truly like this little 22. Recoil is minimal at best, and accuracy was probably some of the best I've seen out of a 2in snub.
