Shooting in IDPA type match requires that loaded round be ejection and show clear. My 995t will eject while firing but would only eject about 10% manually. Sent it to Hi-point and it will now will not even manually eject any of the rounds. Anybody else have this problem?

You really have to pull that charging handle way-way back on a carbine. Is it at least grabbing them?

Yeah. Rip it open like you mean it, and they’ll fly out.

The round stays in the chamber completely, before Hi-point worked on it it at least ejected some of them, now not one will come out I have to use a rod to remove them. Never had an extraction problem while firing, haven't got to the range yet to see if that too has changed. Also had a total of two rounds go off while attempting to extract the live round, got DQ'd, so will not use in IDPA matches again.
Thanks for addressing this problem

You should not be cycling live rounds in a Hi-Point. The Hi-Point use the firing pin to eject the rounds.

Can you describe the method you used to hand cycle when the rounds went off? I have cycled them by hand and never had a problem. However I tilt it to fall and keep body parts out of the way. No hindrance on it exiting. I know it going bang is a possibility.

You shooting reloads? If so I am wondering if your primers are sitting high.

Have no option during match, after addressing all targets there will be a live round in the gun, must be removed to show clear to match director. They will not allow you to leave the firing range without removing round, there is no other way to remove it other than to manually cycle it out, was allowed to fire it out but would not allow me to continue to use Hi-point until problem was fixed, sent to Hi-point, problem is now worse, will use my pistols in matches.

Using reloads and factory, round did not go off while pulling charging handle, fired just as I touched it. The information sent to Hi-point related to manually cycling out live round and the (2) discharges, they tested the extraction problem by firing the gun, which has never been a problem. Was told that they have had a very few problems with discharges, only one that somehow went full auto, which they fixed. Said the extraction was due to hand loads, another member tested them in his 995 and had no problem manually cycling all of them out.

Yes, we understand having to show clear. I would call HP and tell them what is going on. I wouldn't give up on it.

That's scary. I will step back with my popcorn and let the smarter members take over. I love my 995TS's more out of all the HP's I own.

Maybe the face of the bolt is cut too deep? I'll shut up now.

So you are saying the gun will not eject....but you actually meant it won’t EXTRACT.
But apparently it worked for the factory.

Then, you cycle by hand to chamber a round, then when you drop the mag and try to cycle the action to clear it, the bullet went off when you touched the charging handle.

Which also, apparently wasn’t a thing for the factory, or they’d have fixed it.

I got nothing.

By any chance, did you take the gun apart before using it?

Just three days ago got it back from Hi-point, they worked on it for over two weeks, worse than when I sent it in, now will not eject a single loaded round, would eject about 10% before.

Reloads? Factory?? Is the ejection the same for both. Firing pin works as ejector. If its not even pulling the round out of the chamber does the ejector keys move, broke worn out? Are your reloads or factory rounds out of spec. Is the chamber out of spec? If you have to force the case out of the chamber. Its the case or chamber diameter thats off. Do you reload yourself or are you buying them?

They misinterpreted my notes and thought I ment it would not cycle while firing, and not while attempting to remove the remaining live round after completing a stage, so they fired and all rounds cycled, as they did for me. After shooting all targets there is usually some rounds in my mag and one in the chamber, I drop the mag and cycle the charging handle to remove last round and show clear, 90% of the time the round will not come out and must be fired out, the match director allowed this for several matches but finally said he could no longer do so. There were two accaisions that an unintentional firing happened both when I was going to attempt to "extract" the remaining round and touched the charging handle, out of at least 1000 rounds this happened twice, the factory fired 30 rounds and did not attempt to extract a live round therefore did not address that particular problem. They did however replace the firing pin spring. As I said before sending it in I could manually extract about 10% of the rounds, now so far I can extract absolutely none, and if I can not prove to the match director that I can he will not allow me to use it in the matches, which is not a deal breaker as I can use either a pistol or pcc.

If your weapon is cycling effectively when it's fired, then extraction is happening as it should, and ejection is happening as it should, or you would be having spent brass get stuck inside the ejection port. If it cycles when fired, then it should cycle by hand, as well.

Get some snap caps, and run those through it by hand. Before you fully cycle the action, open it partially to see if the extractor claw is engaging the cartridge rim. If it isn't, then look for obstructions under it, which might be preventing the extractor from closing all the way towards the interior of the slide.

Thanks for the reply, I replaced 2 extractors, the factory replaced one when they had it for over two weeks. The gun functions and extracts the empty cases perfectly when being fired but will only extract about 10% of the loaded rounds when doing so manually. The factory also opened up the chamber a bit thus I can actually point the muzzle upward and shake the loaded round out, but the extractor will leave most of them in the chamber.
Again thanks for your reply.

It sucks, you are a one in a million. Eventually they may replace the entire gun.

I gave the gun to my son, he does not shoot IDPA so the extraction problem will not effect him as he can just fire it out, or point the muzzle up and shake it out, where as I can not do so during a match since pointing the muzzle up with a loaded round is a definite no no.
Besides this give me an excuse to buy another gun, "hoooora" (Grand Power Stribog is now on the menue).

Needs a stronger Ejector/Extractor Key Spring. Even the IPB from HP calls them Ejector Keys, btw.

~OR~

The keys could be rounded just enough that they are sliding off the rim during manual extraction where they don't have time to lose grip due to the sheer violence and force of recoil under fire.
