    Trick is to keep them clean. My one needs stripping every 200rnds or so or I start having cycling issues. Mine is also quite fussy only cycling with CCI or Winchester subs any other brands are hopeless.

    Yeh mate pretty straight forward, just make sure the bolt is forward before you unscrew the rear cap or your spring might shoot out.
    I just lay every thing on an old towel in the order I take it apart and then re-assemble in the reverse order.
    Also I've found that my mag seems to feed better if I only put 9rnds in it.

    I think Ive got one of these & from memory mine feeds better if you fit the mag & then pull it down so it's hard against the release catch.
    Shoot it, root it & then BBQ it !!!

    finally took it out last night after striping it and cleaning it etc is shooting reasonably well with a newbie behind the scope took a bit to get on the mark but got there in the end 5 shots in about the old 50c piece so good enough still jamming all the time so given it to someone with a lot more experience hopefully he can get it to cycle better.

    My old one cycled fine after I accidentally dropped the magazine and bent the lips a bit.
