    ... and it ran perfectly for about the first 50 rounds.  Mostly Winchester flat nose with about 12 rounds of Winchester Ranger.

    On the last few mags (Rounds 50 - 65 +/-), I got a couple of FTE's.  I did the F&B prior to firing it and it started out well lubed.

    I'm guessing the FTE's were because it was hot and started crudding up ????  

    One FTE was an expended casing actually stuck in the chamber which refused to eject in spite of several rackings.  I had to poke it out from the barrel end.

    Any suggestions, other than clean, lube and shoot some more?   :)

    Congrates and welcome to KTOG

    for the failure to extract... check the 2mm allen screw, besure it is snug.

    Also look at the tip of the extractor (piece held in slide by 2mm allen) be sure the tip is not damaged

    However, this little guns get dirty fast. 50 rounds is a lot more than I shot with out wipping out chamber and relubing.
