Took my brand new 53K out today and had a FTE EVERY time. Ammo choice did not matter. I am thinking the best thing to may be to send it back to Vector. Any thoughts?
+1 same for my experiences"My other Vector eats everything"
My guess the Vector you mention above is an older one... The "New" Vector does not seem to have a very good record.
I would send it back for warranty work or replacement immediately.
Also, I think the rifle caliber K's can be a very finicky beast and I personally would only order one from Ghilli or someone who really knows how to make them run.
I wouldn't be so sure that it's a #15 LP. They ground down #8's and re-marked them as #15 at least this is how mine appeared to be done. Doesn't look anything like my german #15 LP. This could be the problem, just a guess though.OK, here are the numbers: it should be noted that one one side of the mag well, it is stamped V93 then the other side 53K.
The bolt, not sure if that is what it is called, the small silver piece that the locking piece fits into is marked 003337 and BW.
The LP is a #15.
Does this help understand what is happening with this weapon?
Thanks for all your help guys!
