I'm with bpoletti. Lube the sides of the frame where the rail slides, as well as the inside of the rail, and then run a couple hundred rounds of mini mags through it. Clean it up, and see if anything changes. If not mini-mags, some bulk Hi-velocity round even (1250fps stuff). Golden bullets would even work fine for this application, as they are generally a little hotter than some others.

My uncle's Buckmark is probably a 2006 model, and it was doing this a few weeks back. But its got a very low round count even for its age, and probably hasn't been cleaned in years. I broke it down and cleaned it up and lubed the rail contact areas and such to alleviate his problem. If you don't visually see something out of whack, it might just need a short break it. Springs still tensioned up, and rail surfaces not yet polished in. It would be nice if it did end up being as simple as that.

Funny how we have all these little issues with brand new guns, but we sure do regardless.

When I said "rail screws" I assumed that it was understood that I was referring to the screws that mount the rail to the barrel.

Well, an update. The slide dragging no longer seems to be a problem as I haven't had any feeding issues since smoothing out the slide. I am having problems with Federal ammo, both the blue box champion and the black pack. They fairly regularly fail to push the slide back far enough to eject the spent round and pick up a new one. They have enough oomph to cock the hammer, but it's just a bang click rack kind of thing. It works fine with Thunderbolts and Golden Bullets, so I'll just keep shooting those for now and hope it maybe breaks in some more.

CCI Mini Mags or CCI Blazer

I haven't had any problems with CCI Mini Mags or Blazer. I haven't tried Federal anything so I can't make the comparison. But if your gun shoots a little better with hotter ammo, I suggest you stick with a hotter ammo for at least the next 1000 rds or so. Maybe your gun just likes hotter ammo.

Make sure you keep you gun clean. Dirty ammo (typical of some 22LR) can leave your gun with hygiene problems. One of the problems dirty guns can create is a cycling issue.

That's a problem that affects most guns, definitely not just Buckmarks. Springs are tight, surfaces are rough, tolerances stack, and rust preventative is not lube... it happens. Hopefully it's only 1-in-100 examples or less, and quickly resolves itself through wear and/or a little cleaning and lubing, but it happens.
