I got my MM23e about three weeks ago. Like everyone else who got theirs I pretty much admired it for a couple of hours. Build quality, craftsmanship and finish are top notch. Last week I linked up some ammo and gave it a test run. Had some trouble in the beginning with rounds not chambering all the way in but after that it ran fine. I am thinking that it was due some of the M27 links being too tight or? Thanks Mike for a great product and for your patience in answering my newbie questions on beltfeds. Anyways here are a couple of pics.
