I had a kaboom with a Ciener 22 conversion kit in my AR the other day. Didn't hurt anything, but it was exciting. Anyone know why this happened? See the pics.

From the shot you posted I would say that the round was not seated and the weapon fired out of battery.

Daniel,
I am in agreement with Mark, it is worth noting that many .22 loadings leave a wax buildup that can shrink the overall size and length of your chamber over time as well.

Daniel61,
I'm in agreement with Mark & David here. But could you post the make and type of ammo you were using ?

The reason I ask is that a friend of mine had several ( no - not several, MANY !) incidents similar to yours, with a self-loading .22 rifle.
We scrubbed out the chamber, stripped down the rifle to check for a broken part. - Nothing. The problem continued, so I suggested he put the rest of the "brick" of ammo aside. ( Even here in Brazil, .22 ammo is cheap !)
The problem has never re-occured.
Anthony.

It was Winchester Dynapoint, and the Ciener had less than a hundred rounds through it since purchase. BTW, if you have a conversion unit in a handgun and don't have good success with ammo it's really reliable. I have an Advantage Arms for a Glock 23 and could never find any 550 boxes of ammo that would cycle the slide reliably. The Dynapoint did the trick.

I used Dynapoint ammo, I use it in my Advantage Arms glock 23 conversion because it has a heavy bullet, cycles fine and most importantly can be bought in 550 cartons (CUZ I'm such a cheapie.)
