years ago you could tell the difference by the look of the case

fiocci seemed to be half full ,,,, the plastic insert inside the case only came up half way
umarex ended at the top in a cross ,, like a "dum dum " bullet

but now a days ,, i would not swear on it

back to the gun itsself

if you look at the flash hole on the top

if it is exactly round and between 1 and 1.5mm then it should be ok

if its jagged or bigger than 2 mm then chances are ,, its

Well I have definately been using German ones, Dynamit Nobel I think, but I do have some Fiocchi, but can't remember if I've used any. Can't really test it round here, will have to wait for Severn Valley Railway to try them out. The top slider seems to come forward too quickly and traps the spent cartridge as it's being ejected.

that does not necessarily have to be problems with the blanks

if the extracter claw is not catching tightly on the rim or the ejector post is not flicking the rounds at the right angle
that could be causing the problems

have you tried loading the mag and cycling the action fast by hand to see if it is kicking the rounds out ?

if it is not then that may well be your problem

I've managed to fire 2 rounds and the 2nd gets caught. I can't really experiment though as I have nowhere to try it.
which bit is the extracter claw and ejector post?

the extraxtor claw is the thin metal hook that hooks over the base of the round

ok somethinf easier

pull the slide all the way back and lock it open with the slide catch

look in the breech area ,, you should see the firing pin on the breech face
just above that , that is the extractor claw

if you liik further down in the breech area , beside the magazine
there will be a post that , well it looks like it has no purpose what so ever
that is the ejector post

place 1 round in tha magazine
gently let the slide move forward and as the round slides in the breech
you will see the extractor claw hook over the rim of the round

the extractor claw may lift up slightly as it hooks the round

the extractor claw should have a slight point to it

if it is rounded then this MAY be the problem

as you pull the slide rearwards you will see as the round comes out of the breech it is being held in place by the extractor hook

if it is not then that is telling you there is a slight problem

as the slide comes fully back,, that piece of protruding metal will hit the bottom edge of the case causing it to flick upwards

if it is damaged ,, missing ,, rounded then this MAY also be adding to the problem

i will try and get a pic ,,a picture can explain 1000 words
