I fought an uphill battle with this thing but I finally have it running smoothly.

The first 50rd were a dream. Everything cycled through perfectly and I honestly wasn't concerned with accuracy... just trying to break it in. The next 250rd were a damn nightmare. I had failure to ejects about twice per magazine. The problem was that the extractor spring was not properly tempered so it would bend causing the spent casing to remain in the barrel.

I called KelTec and they sent me a new extractor spring. I go fire 50rd and the same damn thing happened. What I did was to take the old spring, and the new, and double them up. Went and shot and everything worked perfectly through 50rd and then the firing pin shot out the back. The extractor springs are held down by a screw which also locks the firing pin in place. When I doubled the springs, the stock screw was not long enough. I purchased a screw that is 1/8th of an inch longer and have since fired 350rd flawlessly.

The trigger pull is long but I learned, from watching a Nut'n'Fancy video, to stage the trigger. Previously, the long trigger would cause me to push my shots to the right. Using the staging method from the video, I can now hit 9's and 10's with no problem at 10 yards... which is as far as I can possibly see me ever having to take a shot.
