    It's in .22 LR.

    I was wondering if anybody knows anything about this rifle. I've been reading about it a bit online and have seen consistent complaints about jamming and reliability issues. From what I can tell, it's from the magazine. I believe I have the 3rd generation magazine.

    Is there anything I should know?

    The mag issue is old news. Any current production mags just need a good cleaning from time to time.
