This is disheartening news... I hope it's an anomaly.

For many years, I have considered CCI Standard Velocity to be the best-for-the-money .22LR as far as accuracy goes. I used it for practicing...

I recently bought a light-colored paint pen and used it to mark all my magazines. I have a bunch of semi-auto pistols and three of them have .22LR conversion kits, so I have magazines of all kinds...

I chose a .22LR conversion kit that fits either of my 1911s. It might be tiny bit more "fidgety" than a dedicated .22LR 1911 (I don't know for sure), but it's plenty of fun.

I knew the Vantage was not optimal. It will be used on a .22 rimfire in the future. I have an Airmax SF 4-16x50 IR now. It's a great scope!

I run a bore snake (dry) through the bore after each trip to the range. Once a year or so, I'll do a normal brush-and-solvent kind of cleaning.
