Some reviews I read,mention the stove pipe jam and failure for the first round to feed. Given that a majority of users will be using KF ammo, expect stovepipes galore. The problem with the mag lips seems to persist. Will CMT be able to address this issue in house ?

miroflex, let's hope all and their loved ones stay safe but the way things are panning out,it does not look good. One day this damned pandemic would end,hopefully that day comes soon.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences.

@eljefe, that is heresy...a Glock,malfunctioning! How can that be. It is impossible.
The only truly reliable .22 ,in Indian context ,is a revolver and that too if it is in good condition. Most .22 revolvers here are not

Winnie- every review I’ve read from the US market mentions stove piping with low vel/ poor qc ammo,and invariably, the ‘failure to feed’ with first round. In some instances , it resolved itself, others needed some tinkering with the mag lips

The provenance of the ‘desi’ testers seems to be limited to admiring the firearm, pointing it to by standers with finger on the trigger , firing it at stone walls to depict the range, making public service announcements about getting scammed by fake dealer calls and a mention en passant,about the polymer/metal frame. No mention about the mechanism etc Eg.,the rimfire glock is NOT striker fired or other gory details. All plug and play operators

There is a 'review' posted by one fellow of an Indian made pump action shotgun,where he mentions that the rib on the barrel is there to prevent your hand from being burnt by a hot barrel. The video was posted on a thread here. There is more such nonsense posted by people who can't be faulted for their enthusiasm but that is where it ends.

I guess we'll wait for an early buyer to tell us the results with KF ammo
The part about the .22 revolver is perfect.
A Colt Diamondback I used with .22 KF ammo performed brilliantly
