What are nowadays weapon issues?
I would like to learn from you what the problems with nowadays guns both in the technical and practical aspects. If you have experience of any kind regarding weapons handling, safety, etc, I ould like to know. Likewise, if you fixe or produce them, I would like to meet these issues.

The more you can deepen on the subject, the better. I hope you guys can help me with this.

A lot of people (myself included) have reported trouble with the current production Ruger 10/22 charging handle not sliding on the guide rod. Sometimes to the point that tools and force are required to dislodge it from resting. I don't know if it is a misalignment, the guide rod diameter is too much smaller than the hole in the charging handle creating a disagreeable angle, the guide rod gets unnoticeably bent, whatever the culprit, it is frustrating. I did some online research and it seems to be a common complaint. I ordered a replacement guide rod. Hope that helps.

One topic that keeps popping up is the ability for semi-auto guns to successfully feed steel case ammo from the old communist bloc countries. Some guns have no problems, while others choke up. I think that this problem could be addressed by some good gunsmith.

I've seen where Walther 9mms have choked with steel cased ammo that had a coating.
The chamber was warm from a fairly long string and the coating was adhering to the chamber area.

After slowing down the rate of fire, the firearm functioned correctly.
