As I said, read the manual...spare parts + CCI $10.00 Rebate are under the egg cushion of the lid.

1. Clean and lube.
2. Make sure spring is in correct orientation...narrow end in.
3. Ejector pin is dry.

I like the way you spend your ammo. One at a time. Way to go. Your skeeter is doing better than mine was at this stage.

Just changed out my front sight. The tallest was installed so I switched it out to the middle one. I prefer my guns to shoot a little high. I got 40 more rounds of my cci mini mag hp then find some other ammo with similar specs

Just finished off my cci mini mags hp. Im up helping my dad harvest crops and I brought some thunder bolts to shoot. He has some remington jacketed golden bullets. Its a rainy day and no field work so I decided against my better judgment to shoot some golden bullets since they were closer to my cci than the thunderbolts. Shot 50 rounds of the golden bullets with no issues. Did seem little dirtier. I even fired the last magazine as fast as I could.

Bullet make and count so far

CCI Mini Mag HP 36g 100 rounds
Remington Golden Bullet 36g 50 rounds


Gun is running 100%

Wow! You're pretty lucky as round nose is ideal - hollow point a step down.

Would be nice to know how the Federal Champion 745 HV 36g Plated Hollow Points do if you have 'em.

I have those - but not going shooting until next month...

This.

The GSG 1911 is good too.
Really good ammo is the key.

Now I know 150 isnt many but I am loving my mosquito so far. I have more thunder bolt rounds with me than I thought. I may go out and shoot a few of them too. I did field strip it, clean and lube again. I do think cci shoots much cleaner than the golden bullets. Both are jacketed hollow points and will see how a lead round nose shoots with the thunderbolts. I think there 40g. These are the "packed" 50 round boxes not the big bulk ammo. Not sure if it makes any difference. I did see a youtube video were it did.

Stay tuned.
