View Full Version : Problem with Ceiner .22 kit?

I got my Ceiner kit in the mail a couple of days ago, but haven't had a chance to shoot it yet...But I installed and lubed the kit and loaded the little mag that it comes with. I tried cycling the rounds through. The first one loaded fine - When pulling the charging handle to eject the (unfired obviously) first round and cycle a new round, the first round gets stuck on the next round on its way out and I have to separate the upper and lower to pull the 1st round out.
It's like the placement of the round in the magazine isn't letting the first round eject.
Like I said, I haven't fired it yet, so maybe it's just a problem that will correct itself?
It seems like the round in the magazine is almost sticking up too high or something.
I appreciate any help!

Ejection timing of a fired case sans bullet is quite different from a loaded case.

What are you doing checking function in your house with live ammo?

22 snap caps (or function checking caps) are a lot cheaper than the cost of repairing a hole in the wall or worse :)

This is normal as ar15barrels stated. Function checking caps won't eject properly in my gsg-5 but has yet to experience a FTE at the range with thousands of rounds through the pipe.

Ok, thanks for the info. I was function checking it outside, in a safe condition, of course.
Glad to hear, can't wait to shoot it this weekend :)
Where's a good place for mags for this thing? The mag that comes with the kit is pretty...sub par ;)

I've also experienced some snap caps that were slightly out of spec and thus refused to extract properly from the chamber when trying to cycle them through the firearm.

For mags go to addaxtactical.com or spikestactical.com...

They both sell the 22mm 10/30 mags for the ar-15 22lr conversion

Where'd you get the kit from, I'm having a hell of a time finding one?

I got one when Midway had them in stock last week.

UPDATE - Took it to the range today. I had about 3-4 FTE's out of about 250 rounds. Shooting is fun as hell :)
