    What 351 said. The only real issue I've ever had with any of mine (outside of simply shooting them until they are so dirty that they simply can't cycle for all of the residue an that isn't the gun's fault) is I broke a firing pin on one. It was an easy fix.

    Having owned three of them at one time and owning one at the present, the only time I ever had a 63 jam was when feeding bad ammo.

    I have never had one jam up for any reason attributed to the firearm.

    My current 63 will even feed standard velocity loads from CCI, RWS, and Winchester.

    It does it's best shooting with CCI Green Tag but the stuff is far too expensive to give the rifle a steady diet of what amounts to Match ammo.

    I normally use CCI High Velocity,(NO Stingers), and Winchester Super X high velocity solids when I can get them.
