Default H&R 929 trouble

Hey guys, I'm new to the forum so just let me know if anything I do is idiotic or whatnot. Anyway, I just purchased my first gun which is a H&R 929 .22 9-shot revolver. It has maybe a 60% rate of actually shooting however. When I look at a bullet that misfired, it always has a mark from the hammer though. If I just reverse the chamber and fire again, it usually then DOES fire the bullet. At most it's taken 3 times to shoot any one round. Is this a gun issue or a ammunition issue? The ammo I'm using is definitely cheap, but I don't think it's terrible. It's Remington .22 Cyclone. Let me know if you guys need more info. I'm pretty new to guns, but I know a little and I'm also not an idiot. Thanks guys!

problem 1 Your using Rem cyclone the worst ammo out there in 22lr. Not a big deal it is known to have misfire problems like you are talking about.

I would get some federal or cci and try that.

If a 22lr miss fires 99% of the time it fires when struck again.

On another note, head on over to the intro section and say hi to all the guys and gals here on the board.

Is the gun new or used? As Tango said, Remington rimfire ammo is as bad as it gets, try a few other brands. If other brands misfire, you may have a weak (or modified) mainspring...

Sounds like crap ammo to me. As Much as I like Remington guns,they disappoint me with their ammo.

Ditto on the Remington .22 ammunition, it's not good quality.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams
