My only gripe with the gun is how the rimfire filth gets everywhere. If you're OCD about cleaning, you'll have to douche the lower out every time you clean the gun. Other than that, it's a heck of a fun toy.

The first outing had a learning curve, the mags really only wanted about 18-20 rounds loaded, or things would get tight and feeding became a problem. Keep your mags loaded below 20 rounds until things relax and break in a little and it will ease your frustration.
I was having problems w/, click no bang w/ all but federal maroon and black box ammo I purchased at walmart.

I figured someone would notice that, it's obvious someone with little knowledge of the Military detailed that lower.

I've run CCI Blazer and Federal blue box stuff (Champion?) through mine as well as Western with no dud issues. Only issues so far with mine have been clearing the spent case with the drum mag, it would eject the case but not enough to clear the action, then it turned it sideways and smashed it flat between the bolt and the live round that had been chambered. Then you have to drop the mag before charging again, or it tries to back-door the already chambered round with another live round. That and trying to overstuff the regular mags when new causing feeding issues.

Just updated my AR since the last time it was shown. I put on a Magpul AFG, Hogue grip, and a Norgon Ambi mag release.
