    Hey guys. Just signed up on the board. Looks like a great place. Lots of info and the members seem to be very helpful. Very nice to see. I just picked up my first pocket gun the other day. It was a birthday present to myself from other people. I took the cash they gave me...lol. Anyway, just trying to learn all I can about this little gun. Looks like a great little piece. I am sure I will learn a ton from all the pros on here. TIA for all of the great info. :)

    Welcome Logan. You'll find a great bunch of guys and a few women on this site. Most are very helpful when problems arise. I'm sure you've seen evidence of that already by reading many of the threads.

    God bless,

    Reggie

    Thanks again everyone. Went to the range today. Put 100 rounds down range. I did not pull the gun apart before going, which after reading here I realize I should have, but I didn't. So the first 50, I had about 4 or 5 rounds that did not feed correctly. Pull the slide back and they would re-seat and go in like they were supposed to. Well, I told my self "self, it is just part of the break in period." So I got another 50 put down range with not a single hiccup. All in all I am pretty happy with it. May have to do a grip work. I will break it down and clean it real well.

    One question I do have. I have seen several of you talking about greasing your slide rails. What kind of grease are yall using? I have not seen a particular kind stated, just grease in general. Thanks again.

    Yeah, its getting there. Is it normal for these to jam a few times at first? :-?

    Certainly for it to happen in the break-in period it is not incredibly uncommon.

    Welcome Logan. About grease on the rails. Most say just about any gun grease will work, some use plain old axel grease.  :) Put some grease on the center slide thing that resets the hammer and a dab on the face of the hammer as well.

    Thanks, I did run across a thread or two about that after I asked it. Thanks for the response though. That is what makes this place great. It really reminds me of a board I am part of the staff on. Thanks again. :)

    logan, i've used the exact opposites of the spectrum to great this thing, high end stuff (like TW50 or some stuff) and el cheapo hoppes grease. both work equally well!

    Thanks spence. I know I have some white lithium grease here at the house. Would that work? I think one good thing would be that is would be easy to see when doing a cleaning. Easy to get off and reapply. Any thoughts on that?
