First, welcome to the forum. Stop over by the intro thread and say hello.

Second, for any of us to make a halfway educated guess, YOU need to give us some info.

Jamming? In what way? Fail to feed, fail to fire/extract/eject? Double feed? Strawberry or grape jam?

What ammo? How long have you had it? Problem just start, or new to you gun?

Talk to us!

Grape jam is better than butter, n'cest pas?

To the original poster- see we cannot see what is going on with your gun, you need to tell us specifically.

C3 was just ribbin ya. he was makin light of the terminology you used.........."jamming."

Jamming? In what way? Fail to feed, fail to fire/extract/eject? Double feed? Strawberry or grape jam?

jamming just doesn't explain to us what the deal is.....is it:

1. failing to feed the next round correctly;
2. failing to fire the current round;
3. failing to extract/eject a fired round;
4. double feeding where 2 rounds try to be pushed into barrel?

how is it strawberry jammin???? lol
