I love my c9. I'm always highly impressed at it's accuracy, even at golf balls from 25 yards. However, it does have one slight issue. Almost every magazine I run through it drops out of the grip on either the last round or the next to last round (usually the last round), causing a FTF (obviously) and no small amount of irritation. I was wondering, short of sending it back in to Hi Point (which I am very near doing) to see if they can fix the problem, what do you all recommend?
I have tried the following 'fixes'
1) loading different number of rounds each time I shoot ( 2,3-5-7-8 ) They are, by the way, factory 8rd mags.
2) adjusting my grip to make sure I'm not bumping the mag release button. I'm pretty sure I'm not, but who can say for certain what's happening when the slide slams back.
3) using different magazines. I have 3 factory 8rd mags, and they all have this issue
4) adjusting and polishing feed lips. That helped with all my other ftf problems, but the mags are still dropping.
It seems that I've read somewhere that some c9's have this magazine release problem and that hi point can send a part that will fix it, rather than having to ship the gun off.
Anyway, I'll stop rambling now. Any suggestions you have would be great.
Oh, and thanks to all responsible for getting this new forum up so quickly. Excellent work!
