Hi, I just came back from our local range. I have been shooting the Russian Bear ammo for the past week or so with not much problems. It seems that when you load the first round from the mag, you want to pull the slide all the way back. Then let the spring pull it forward. Otherwise you may have to push forward on the slide to feed the first roun. OK, I learned from this. But... I shot a couple of boxes of Bear Ammo, then switched to the Winchester Wally World ammo. Holy Crap! You would think with the nice new brass it would feed great. But I got all sorts of stove pipe jams. Sometimes the empty would not eject all the way, and sometimes the last round in a clip would not feed properly. However my really crummy hand loads (95 gr bullet not alwise seated correctly, feed just fine.) Anybody else having problems with the Winchester 100 round boxes? I do want to go to the next IDPA match and shoot the Hi-Point, but I don't want to just prove that cheep guns won't work. BTW my little Kal-Tec 11 ate everything just fine and kicked the crap out of the deadly tin cans that were chargeing me. <g>) BTW, I did oil the gun, mags, and did polish the feed ramp with some 800 paper. I have 4 8 round mags and one 10 round mag and the problem was observed through all of the mags. (they are marked) I could send the gun back with all the mags and samples of the ammo, but for some reason I think the problem is closer to home. So far I have put about 600 rounds through my c-9 -Ralph Other guns: AMT Back up (Single action in .380) Broke one fireing pin in 28 years. Walther PKS Easter block clone in 9X18, never a problem. Hi-Point C9, fun, but need to get the reliabilty up. Ruger Black hawk in .357 (my most accurate gun, great for deer hunting.) Heartiage arms six gun in .22 and .22 mag Basic fun gun. Comming soon. Baretta Bobcat, in .22, just a fun little auto. some shotguns, An SKS A Smoke Pole in .50 cal black powder.
