Confusion in CCI Blazer .22 Loadings/Packaging/Marketing Practices.
In an effort to advise all of our ZiP Customers of the issue, we have posted this advisory. The recommendation made by ZiPFactory for CCI Blazer (Product Code 076683100214 ) with Package code identifier 10021 loaded by CCI, with the visual description (Black heads and heavy moly lube) is correctly identifying the proper ammunition for superior function in ZiP.
Please be aware that due to the severe drop in quality represented by the "Federal "CCI Blazer aka the "50021/00021" we cannot recommend it for use with ZiP. Buy the real CCI Blazer in the 525 Bulk pack loaded by CCI with code (10021).
****BE ADVISED**** Many Dealers are unaware and on-line sellers are confusing the two loadings- calling the (50021 / 00021) style loading the "CCI 40 gr -1235FPS" -This is incorrect information.
These two packages look the same but the performance of each is widely different.
We Purchase CCI Blazer .22 ammo wherever we can source it. *We use it in testing our Service Returns Exclusively-CCI Blazer.22 -1235 FPS ( We shoot the loose Bulk Ammo- then to keep our customer service at a high level- we often offer our customers a free box of "CCI Blazer" not thinking to open and inspect each "brand new" box of 50-!
Pre-packaged- as shown... much to our surprise, our Customers complain that they do not get the results we do with their unit...when tested just days ago at ZiPFactory... Well, this issue was brought to our attention by a loyal customer and we are very concerned about everyone getting the proper information and success with correct ammunition. We now know that we unknowingly provided several customers with this "Federal" loading and the results were unacceptable and uncharacteristic of the ZiP.22
Correct "On Brand" Product: "CCI Blazer" (Loaded By CCI) seen to the left; while the round on right sold as "CCI Blazer" uses a different bullet style and shape. Both rounds use the "C" headstamp on casing. Note: the packaging (above right) displays NO loading data or FEET PER SECOND DATA. The Correct Package on the left is marked, 1235 FPS-(True CCI Blazer-High Velocity) sold in the BULK 525 Value Pack-Black bullet head and heavy moly lube. Note the similarity of the packaging- confusion over what you get in the box has been blamed on Firearm Non-Performance when more appropriately the non-performance should be placed with the quality of the ammunition/confusingly similar packaging under the "CCI Blazer" logo.
As shown below: The Good Stuff- REAL - CCI Blazer-shown in its well known packaging.
The rimfire rounds shown here display different head styles, feed differently and in the case of the "Federal Loading" shown on left, shares no performance characteristics of true CCI Blazer-1235 fps (as shown on the right).
This special Deluxe Combo Pack includes ZiP™ Std. Fixed Sight Rail, ZiPPic™ Rail, ZiPNite™Rail, ZiPSBR™ Rail, related hardware (8 rail screws, 3 ZiPSBR™ Rail tension screws) and a Pelican 1060 Case. Choose between yellow, black, blue or red case. MSRP $129.99. Now shipping from Amazon.com!
All those ZiP Registered Users whose Serial Numbers fell into the upgrade category (*****AAA130 - AAA999 and AAB100 - AAB249******) were shipped the Version 1.0.1 Upgrade Kit as of the first cutoff date of March 14th. If you registered after that date your information was automatically added to the next list and will ship weekly from our data base. As a reminder- this kit is NOT the BX-25 Upgrade- which is still in final tooling) Thank you. Note: If your unit falls into this Serial Number Range-but includes the Special Orange Notice

When you get your kit please follow these helpful tips: (also reference ZiP Manual section pg 30 -41)
When it comes time to re-install the action rods....(Load and Re-Strike).. please do not have the Barrel Nut fully tightened.
1. Barrrel nut should be 1/2 turn from bottom. 2. Then start with the load rod......Turn screw to bottom BUT DO NOT TIGHTEN yet. Try the action- should be "slippery". 3. Install the Re-strike rod, and do the same. Only when you like the compression and tracking of the action do you set the Barrel Nut. Tighten the barrel nut with fingers to bottom... then - with wrench ...(std top) only snug up about 1/10 turn to sung. Try action again to confirm its still smooth.4. NOW tighten Bolt Screws both about 1/3 turn past bottom.
If you feel binding at this point - just "break tension on the screw" on either rod and look at the end of the diamond shape as it sits in the body. It can touch but optimally you want that clear of friction.
5. Continue to re-build as normal (Striker system, etc)
ZiPPIC Rail and ZiP Std. Fixed Sight Rail are now available on Amazon.com. Buy today from Amazon.com.
