Re: M1 Carbine Johnson .22 spitfire Conversions
My boss's father got one last year and as far as i know they have not got it to cycle yet. The gas port on the barrel was almost closed off with carbon, but even when that was cleaned out it still would not operate the action correctly. I was told they suffered from the gas port being to small in the first place. I am sure that that gas operated auto loading system is a little bit finicky, bullet weight, powder type, chamber pressure and duration. To answer your question personally I would change it back and save the extra pieces. Good Luck!
