Thanks for the info Randall...I will do a little topic searching....I do enjoy plinking with the conversion on....But it would be nice to get it to feed a little more consistantly.

I live in Fargo(Yah...just like the movie)...do you ever get back to ND?

Is it feeding problems you are having with the Ciener ?? I have an early model and it
will not work with a reduced power main spring..The hammer follows the slide every time..With a stock mainspring it workes quite
well..Must use Hi Velocity ammo or it will not feed,slide will not go back far enough to
pick up a round from magazine..
Hope this is of some help..

Try relieving the ejection port on the slide. I had to lower mine some and give it a really good radius. It works great with Federal cheapo 550 hollowpoints and others. I finally got it working, and have had nary a jam with 10 or 15 rd mags. Good luck, DC

It would help in determing what the problem might be to know what the pistol is; what magazines you're using and what ammo it doesn't like and what ammo it likes. Another bit of info that is useful is where is the round hanging up?
A lot of 22 feeding problems are related to the magazine (lips need adjustment or dirty magazines).
Some ammo is strange; for example I've started using Aguila SV - it's got a heavy build up of wax on the head. The only way I've found to make it work in my old HS guns is to put a drop of 3-in-1 oil on the top round. By the way, this ammo is very accurate and reasonably priced.

On any semi auto especially 22, I have found that keeping the chamber clean is #1. Personally use an Otis (tm) pull through system. Good clean ammo, mag feed lips and recoil springs ajusted. This otis system is great for field and range also.

I personally put 12K rounds through an old s&w 422, at 7k s&w free of charge put in new springs.

Ruger Target I put approx 18k rounds, before someone wanted these more than I did. My friend still shoots and competes with these.

He did replace the springs in the ruger At 20K before a big match.

Sometimes the only 'cleaning ' was a pull through and a wipe down, with a little swabbing with a pipe cleaner around the extractor and feed lip.

Used 98% of the time X22lr, though powerpoint works well also.

In my 22/45 have continued this regiment but since going to FP10 have actually tried to get this one to jam. One afternoon at approx 1200 rounds finally got one FTE, ammo? buildup? quick pass with FP10 and finished with no problems the 2k I ran through it

BTW most of the extraction problems I saw in skeet competion was cahmber related, regardless of action type. Wisps of 0000 steel wool around a brush and one is back in the game.

Oh forgot due to the way this system designed most of the time didn't have to use a brush, patches are TIGHT and had and don't have a problem with leading.

I have a Bersa Thunder 22lr and a Walther P22, yesterday, I went to the range to try various brands of ammo, to see if any bulk/SV stuff would reliably cycle thru my guns. CCI mini-mags were 100%, Rem GB's were 100%, Winchester Super X's were about 80% with both FTF's and FTE's. CCI SV were no bueno, high rates of jams, as were the Rem Thunderbolts. So, if you want fun and reliability, chose M/M and GB's for semi-auto pistols.

At Walmart M/M's are only $7.47/100, if you spend good money on pistols, don't get stupid cheap with your ammo.
