Not at all.

ok thanks for the help and just so i understand correctly black dog mags work well in the ciener conversion also

Absolutely.
Awesome mags and a wonderful company to do business with.

Here's the designated rimfire forum:

A bunch of great info there.

Heck, if you're in Central OR (you guys never are ), I could let you try mine out...

Well, I can only suggest just buying a kit.
Any issues are easily resolved and you will enjoy using it!

Get the kit, a bunch of BDM mags, clean out your local Walmart of their bulk Federal (stay away from Rem) .22 ammo and prepare to smile. So far every brand of ammo apart from Remington "Gold" has worked to satisfaction.

Some folks suggest a couple of .223 rounds at the end to "clean out" the gas tubes. Sounds reasonable but no one's ever done a scientific test of that theory.

Why do you say to say away from the bulk Rem?

They are just known to be kind of inconsistent - especially compared to similar priced bulk.
On a side note, I have about an 80% success rate with Rem subs in the Ciener.
Federal bulk is about 95% + under same conditions.

Really? I have had 3 FTFs in 1650 rounds of Rem. My 20" 1/7 also seemed to be much more accurate at 100 yards with the Rem over the Federal.
