Default CMMG .22 AR upper failure to feed problem


I recently purchased a CMMG .22 upper for my AR.
I am having terrible failure to feed problems. I tried 3 different
types of ammo. Same thing. I watch thru the ejection port as I
charge, and it seems the round isn't fully lined up with the barrel
as I let go of the handle. I obviously have to eject the unfired round
and look at it. It looks as if the bullet part of the round gets 'bent' or
is scraped.

Where should I start my trouble-shooting? ie. Is it the mag? I don't think
so. Maybe the bolt? Can the ejector cause this?

what upper kit did you get??

a good closeup pic of the chamber with a jammed round would help.
