The MAIN thing a person can do if they are having any issues with a semi-auto rimfire firearm...is NEVER Use Remington Rimfire Ammo...
the consistancy of product just isn't there...there are threads and threads and threads about how crappy the stuff is...
in cases of FTE/stovepiping, 95% of the time its the Ammo...not the gun.
If its the gun, its usually the Extractor...or Ejector...or a Burr in the Chamber or Slide Rails...and in some rare occasions, the bolt itself has a burr...
I have yet to see a semi-auto that didn't need some
internal polishing...even my Dan Wesson 10mm benefited from an intense inspection & polishing
There's also a site called Goldenloki, and they have the best Reliability Prep Tweaks I've ever seen in one place,
they apply not only to Keltec's, but every semi-auto firearm from ANY Manufacturer...
all you have to do, is read about 'em, learn how to do 'em, and then Proficiently Do the Work http://www.goldenloki.com/gunsmith/keltec/fullrp.htm
