I Loaded 10 carts and test fired my Marushin M16 last night .
This was the first time I shot it .
After reading - and re reading The Marushin review on Arniesairsoft I followed the loading instructions meticulously .

I did not have a loading tool so improvised with a bolt I had handy - the immediate problem I found was the 5mm cap would not stay put in the 7mm cap . I think these came loose later when in the gun and caused misfires.

Finally I had 10 little carts in front of me all shiny and ready to go. I fed them into the newly oiled magazine . Clicking the mag into place felt great then pulling back the charging handle and seeing the bolt strip a rd from top of the mag - thats what these guns are all about !! right ?KEERRRCHHUUNK - LOCKED AND LOADED .

Clicking the selector onto semi I canted the rifle a bit cos I wanted to watch the firing cycle - I put pressure on the trigger - heheheh - more pressure - this trigger is heavy !! The trigger seemed to be stuck - whats this ?? After a bit of messing about with the selector - it ended up on auto and I got a 3 rd burst - WOW that was loud , and the carts disappeared behind the dining table. Making nice brassy clinks as they went.

Feed jam . Ejected the round trying to keep the shot ones away from the misfires . BBRRAAPPP .... fEED JAM ....another 2 rd burst . I ended up with 3 bursts and 3 jams . Nice sound - no flame that I noticed - but some smoke . I think the caps problem is what caused the misfires but I could be mistaken . I tried placing the 5mm caps into the 7mm caps BEFORE pushing the caps into the cart , but still the little cap seemed to move about too easily .

Ah well - thats my first shooting impressions . Very nice . I even kind of enjoyed loading the carts !! Any advice regarding the caps would be appreciated from more experienced MODELGUNNERS !!
I am already looking into buying another model gun - an Ingram so I must be hooked

Regards Carl.
