The problem with misfires and jamming is because of the 22LR adaptor. The ammo shots great in a 22 pistol. I’ve read that carbon build up on the adaptor tube causes the misfires, and dirty ejectors causes the jams. When the 22 LR adaptor was new there was not many problems.
After I read this I let the adaptor in Hoppe’s 9 for a few days. The next time I used it I only had 3 misfires and jams out of 60 rounds. I thought I cleaned it good enough after that use.
We put 121 rounds into the rifle last Saturday but only 100 of them fired. The 22 LR adaptor in a jar of Hoppe’s now.
The rifle is a Bushmaster XM15. As long as I take the bolt apart and clean it after each use and use brass case ammo I don’t have any jams. The rifle will jam with the steel case ammo.
Death By Gun Control The Mother of All Stats
In the 20th Century, at least 170,000,000 people were murdered by their own governments -- more killed than by crime – more than killed by war.
