I would put atleast 1500 rounds through and clean it 5 times before it goes back for stove pipeing. Your gun needs to break in just like every thing else with moving parts . I have friends with DSI guns all run everything no issues after break in
I would love to put 1500 rounds through it, but it jams every 3-5 rounds. I understand that the gun needs to be broken in, but this doesn't seem like a "typical new-gun issue." Also, it didn't start until after I put the first 200 rounds through it.
Just to summarize the ammo situation:
Sunday March 4th:
That night, I made this post asking about the issue, and was told my best bet was to clean and lube the gun, which I did, and to shoot 5.56 instead of .223, which I purchased. I went back to the range yesterday, March 10th, and loaded a mag with Federal American Eagle 5.56 55gr, part number XM193BK150. The third round I fired jammed in the same way as the .223, deforming the chambered round. Rather than waste time with a gun that was malfunctioning, I packed up and left, and today dropped the gun off at DSI for repair. Maybe it will turn out to be something dumb, and my fault, as I am an admitted newbie at this, but whatever it is I hope at least they are able to replicate the problem, as it happened with two completely different types of ammo.
