If you stretch the links, they seem to run much better. There's a guy thats selling a link stretcher that's just a tapered metal rod.

I have had the same problem with my Ares Shrike. The break in period is very crucial. They seem to love stretched links vs new ones. It is a pain in the butt but i hand loaded and stripped the links several times to stretch them. After I did that it ran like a beast with the loosened up links. From what I have read around internet town, that is a common problem with those uppers. But once you get the links right they are an amazing upper to go to town on. Just my experience I have had with mine and my buddies.

Ditto to Leadfarmer. I run with an RDIAS, use a regular car buffer, their spring and quarter looking thing inside the buffer tube and most importantly, the stretched links.

Stretched links was really the game changer as far as I am concerned.

ps - I also added the Genovese insert for the top cover to guide the rounds down.

I have broken it in and it runs just fine.
Been running a slide fire MOD stock on it with mounted on an MG42 AA tripod.
Mine does like links that have been run a few times over new links.
I bought 3000 new links and ran 1000 thru a tumbler with corn media and that smoothed out the semi rough finish on the links.
I doesn't hurt to put some in a big baggie with some CLP and toss it around to spread the CLP.
I leave them in the baggie for a few days then mop off the excess CLP.
A thin film of CLP makes loading the links much easier and they feed better.
Never heard of a link stretcher but its not a bad idea.
