I have a Springfield 187 that I inherited from my father... It hasn't been shot in a long time.. 15-20 years. I know that when we shot it though, it jammed like crazy... Does anyone know what kind of .22 ammo I should go with? Any other suggestions?

Once those guns start to wear it's very hard to get theim servicable again without replacing every single feed-related part. Start by taking the barreled action to an auto shop and dunking it their parts washer for a while. After a good soak, blow the action dry with compressed air. Place a drop (1) of oil on each pivot pin and then try it again. Accumulation of gunk and improper oilings (my dad was a big on on adding more oil to an already gummy works) can cause a lot of failures to feed/eject. Good luck. ~Andrew
