.22 upper, a can and Remington sub-sonics = no go...?
got a .22 full upper carbine. Bought it used form a friend who put 600 flawless rounds of cci through it.
I put it on a Zombie Defense lower, DoubleStar LPK...Thompson Machine .22 suppressor, remington Sub-Sonic ammo. Go the first shot off, 2nd stopped partially loaded into the chamber.
Cleared the jam, repeat. Cleared the jam; repeat...repeat...repeat...repeat...I looked at the rounds and the bullet is being 'bent' at an angle and a section of the lead is 'smooshed' over the lip of the brass case.
I searched but nothing came up with 'Remington'...
If your lower has a very stiff hammer spring for military primers the subsonic Remington's probably don't have enough blow back to fully cycle the bolt against the stiff hammer spring. (bent bullets sound like short cycling)
My 15-22 wouldn't cycle Remington Subs until I lightened the hammer spring a bit.
Try buzzing the chamber as that might help a bit but I'm bettering you have too much hammer spring in your lower for those wimpy Remington Subs.
Try CCI Standard Velocity, Ron Williams is using them in a 5", Suppressed,Full Auto and Lovin them.
Remington has always been noted as giving some troubles in AR-22's
ok, thanks. I'm gonna switch out hammer springs and try again...if that fails I'll try new ammo. I wanna use sub sonics because my Thompson Machine can pretty much sucks.
I've had good luck with cci subsonics and aguillar subsonics. For some reason the Remington subsonics I got aren't any quiter than the Remington cyclones - they do cycle fully though.
