Had the exact same thing happen to me.I bought one a few years ago and got rid of it as quick as i had a chance too. It was not the most accurate gun i have ever owned and would not shoot certain ammunition. I bought a .22 mag. in it and the main problem i was having was it would not eject hollow points. It would shoot TMJ's o.k. but not hollow points. The ejector was too weak to grab the bullet rim best i could figure. In my opinion there are a lot better guns out there.
