New 220

Picked up my new P220 Carry SAS in SAO. I am really excited to shoot this gun but I'm having troubles finding ammo right now. I'm going to get the 220 cleaned up today and hopefully track some down before next weekend.

Just picked up some Golden Sabre amo online at The Sportsman's Guide (never had to order ammo online before). At least I found something to finally shoot.

Agreed! My uncle has some bulk Federal that he is going to give me but I didn't want to show up to his range "empty handed." I'm going to gift him a couple of 9 mm boxes to make up for it. I really cannot wait for all the gun control excitement to settle so that I can find some bulk stuff.

Your welcome. I like that it adds the shipping and shows cost per round.

Just field stripped and cleaned/oiled the 220 but when I put the upper assembly on the lower assembly and attempt to rack the gun its catching. It seems to be catching near the trigger assembly or where the magazine feeds the barrel. Nothing is bent, everything is assembled correctly, but when attempting to rack the gun its not racking with ease.

Any ideas?

My 220 Dark Elite TB was very "tight" at first. After about 500 rounds it seems to have "worked in", now quite smooth with very little "slop". I would suggest grease as per instructions on this board, and shoot it a lot.

I think you're right docskeet. I broke it back down and paid a little more attention to the recoil spring/rod and it is a little better. Still not racking with ease; however, maybe I just need to put some rounds through it and then give it another good cleaning/lubrication.

While they are not comparable, my p238 did not have the "tightness" that I'm experiencing with the P220. Anyone else notice this on a brand new P220?
