Before going to visit my dad at the nursing facility this AM, I dropped the gun off to a local FFL/gunsmith. I explained everything to him and said I would be back later to pick it up.
I picked it up after 12 today. He tore it down and went over/thru it very thoroughly. After putting it back together he shot a mixture of 100 rds. of LR. bullets thru it with not one problem. He even stated it was very accurate. I am going to hang onto it until my dad gets out of the nursing facility. I want to make sure it doesn't have anymore problems.
BTW, he charged me $35, which I think was fair.

Hmm, surprised the second bullet didn't deform more, the nose is still mostly round. .22 is relatively low power..good in this case.

Great that you are saving Dad's gun. Enjoy.

I've had a blocked bbl once with my M-11/9 in full auto. THAT was a bit harry! Luckily, no one was hurt. Three bullets lodged; stacked end to end near the breech. We figure a squib round went in; probably only had a primer and no powder charge. The next two forced the first down with each subsequent round. Once the last one would not let the bolt fully close, the slam-fire firing pin alerted the user when the case exploded with an open bolt! The barrels in these guns are made very robust on purpose; for good reason. When you can burn 20 rounds per second, it does not take long for mistakes to multiply.

The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money
