I picked up a HS in early February and had the feed problems and jamming during my first session with it. So took the gun back to where I bought it and explained the situation, so he took it in for a repair. Well my gun has been at his shop going on 4 weeks now. Should I ask for my money back or continue to try and be patient.
Thanks

Go back and collect it.  Then send it to Roddy Toyota, Jon Eulette or perhaps KC Crawford.  It is very likely that these are magazine issues.

HS don’t have a feed ramp.  They are rather famous for feeding issues.  Assuming gun is clean, etc., that is what I would look at first as well.  

If you know anyone with a functioning HS, I’d see if I could try one of their magazines.  If returning the gun is really an option, you might consider that, particularly if you don’t have access to a decent smith locally who can help you. There are special HS magazine adjusting tools, and if you go the the HS sub-forum on the the Rimfire  Central forum you will find lots of help on adjusting the magazines yourself (if you are handy).



PS.  I should add that when tuned properly the HS can be very reliable, after Jon E tuned my mags, I haven’t had any further issues.

Tuning HS mags isn't magic.

Stick to one kind of ammo. CCI SV is what I recommend. 

If the rounds are missing the chamber too high tighten the lips where I circled the photo.

If the rounds stall low, spread them out a little bit.

If you don't know the history of the gun, or to be confident that proper maintenance has been done, consider replacing the recoil spring. I just replaced mine last night and here's a comparison between the one that came out of the gun and the one that went in.

This is another good website with HS info especially the military or 100 series pistols. http://www.histandard.info/Jim_Barta/
 If you aren't very sure of your skills with adjusting them or any work to be done on a gun, have a qualified gun smith do it. I'd have one versed in bullseye shooting do the work as mentioned earlier in this post.

Thank you all for the great information, when I get the gun back I will have this to refer to.

+1, I have mine replaced once a year.  I tuned my magazines for CCI SV and it runs like a clock and feeds Eley without any issues.

Another option - call Alan Aronstein at 'firearmsintl.com'.    You can reach him at  "Alan   at   the web address I just noted, or I can send you his phone number if you send me a PM.  He knows the guns inside and out, and got my all the parts I needed to get my own HS working much better.  He also has a lot of new HS parts available.
