Xm 316 Gen 8 Feeding issues

Hey guys

I just bought my second blaster the EM 316 variant of the Gen 8 M4. I am having issues feeding into my t piece so much so I have pulled it completely apart to manually feed gels in the t piece itself while having it upside down to try shoot some gels and even that won’t feed.

Am I correct in assuming my t piece is just garbage? no visible dame or anything

As you can see none actually feed they just come out, this is even if I cover the bottom
