    Just the geco ammo I brought. Flat nose, and they didn't feed well. Hung up on ramp. However when there was one in the chamber it always went bang.
    Please excuse spelling, as finger speed is sometimes behind brain spped........ Or maybe the other wayy.....

    That short NEA15 I sold you @R93 would of done around 2-2.5K worth of rounds when I had it with very little to no cleaning being done. Ran like a trooper.

    It still does

    I gave it some love the other day tho. Managed to sort the gas block and tickled up the trigger.
    Cleaned everything that would fit in my sonic cleaner and she come out looking new.
    The bore is in excellent condition as well.
    Shot a stage with it on Sunday and she ran perfectly.

    So you were at Rhythm & Vines then, shooting hippies? Good man.

    Actually the ultrasonic cleaner was what I had in mind for some of the harder items to clean out but judging by recommendations on here I won't be needing to do that more than once a year or so. Was thinking it would also be perfect for cleaning suppresors.

    Mine took an A-tec suppressor Back to bare metal. So if you do use an ultrasonic cleaner,bear my result in mind.
