Make sure to also clean the feeding ramp and loading hole where the rod pushes the round up to the feeding ramp. I'm glad to see that it worked for you at the egg shoot. How did you do?

Terrible. $2 a pop. One guy never missed. Then another guy showed up with a.22 Ruger with the heavy barrel and it got down to them shooting at quarters then dimes. All I did was knock two off the nails. Last time I used my .22 Polish trainer and at least two 'without' a scope.(60 yrds.)
I do clean the loading ramp and just about anything that shows. It doesn't take long to gum up and....click.....

Are you shooting with a scope on it or the open sights. The 60 my brother inlaw has shoots fine open sights but you put a scope on it, set it (if you get that far) and 5 shots later its 6-12" off at 50yrds.

I second the gripe about the Remington Viper. Functioned ok, but the worst trigger pull ever. Also, I had an Iver Johnson .22 that looked like a .30 M1 Carbine, and while it shot good, and looked good, it could not feed 15 rounds in a row without jamming. Clean, dirty, high end target ammo, cheap bulk ammo, didn't matter. Jammed constantly. No wonder they are not made anymore. Heritage Manufacturing .22 Rough Rider. what a POS. terribly inaccurate.

I owned a Squires-Bingham Model M-16 and didn't have any problems with it after I figured out what kind of ammo works best...also sanded off the crappy black paint off the stock & stained it with Wood You's Black Walnut...made for a darnfine example of the breed...traded it for a 1965 ford Falcon w/ a 289 in it...I'd say the $120 rifle was worth it!!!

Default Walther P22

Currently own a Walther P22 and am generally favorable to the gun, faiure to feed problems eliminated by using a hot enough round to power the cycling and using generally clean burning ammo. Both my Ruger Mk II and the Walther seem to do better when I avoid hollow points.
