mine loves the cci mini mags. ive got the plastic green stock model. the best groups ive shot have been all rounds touching at 30 yrds. havent had the wind on my side to see what it can really do but hopefully since the weather is gettin nicer ill have more oppourtunity to see what she can really do

I think the ammo manufacturers keep the ammo that falls out of spec and just boxes them up together to sell. That's why they suck.

I can get 100 cci mini mags for $6.50 here, so it's not too much cheaper to have misfeeds,jams,etc...

I finally got around to polishing the guide rods. I want to get the vq hammer and extractor soon.

Wal-mart keeps them in stock here. Every gun shop I go to has various ones to choose from.

I bought a 597 for my son a while back a Bass Pro. Came with a scope and a 30 rd mag. The mag sucks, fails to feed. Ordered 2 10 round factory mags and have not had a fail to feed since. He shoots in our local 4-H shooting sports with it and it has been very reliable without the 30 rd mag
