    Jonathan Cieners is an absolute jerk but his kits work pretty darn good for most people.

    I've been waiting for these to come into stock for the last month. I get home tonight, check my email and the email from midway saying that they're back in stock is here.
    YEAH!
    So I go to midway--- Out of stock; no backorder.

    Get a Spikes or CMMG kit. I wouldn't give Ceiner a penny of my money.

    Stupid question. I assumed the Black Dog 25 round .22 magazines were matched for use with the Ciener conversion kits, but when I insert a mag into the well, it a)doesn't lock up in place and b)holds cartridges too far forward for the conversion kit feedramp.

    Anyone have any advice before I return the Black Dog mag to Midway?

    blackdog makes 2 different magazines one for the ciener conversion and one for the rra conversion. midway's site is messed up right now and says both are for ciener.

    right one

    wrong one

    i get mine from gunkings, it ends up being cheaper as he offers free shipping.

    Thank your lucky stars you didnt have to deal with a factory issue. Go to the Creek sometime and meet the "man" who you helped keep in business.

    I didn't buy it from the man everyone seems to hate, I bought it from Midway USA. If they paid him for it, that's their business.

    If I didn't do business with people either I or someone else considered an a-hole, directly, or at one remove, I'd never be able to spend a dime. Does every place you buy things from get their supplies from someplace else you approve of? Maybe their supplier is an a-hole, too.

    I'd like to think everyone that I spend money with is a good person with the best intentions and manners, but I know that's not true, or even possible.

    My ciener kit has been 100% since I received it a few months ago.

    Blackdog sells the consumables for the kit like the spring, firing pin and extractor.

    Like alot of black rifle guys, I like to wrench on my guns so if the kit had an issue, I'll just have to figure it out just like I would if I bought it from anyone else.

    Money talks and $139.99 is a hell of a deal.

    Howdy,

    Wow! I wish you would have told me that before I fire 500rds through mine on Sunday w/out a misfire.

    :rofl::upeyes::tongueout::whistling:

    Paul

    P.S. Oops. I forgot about the +200rds on Saturday!

    i second that, plus mine is as accurate as my other 22's (except the 10/22 but thats a different story), as a matter of fact it's my new squirrel gun.

    Howdy,

    Add another +250rds to the count. Only misfires that I've had are from dud bulk ammo.
