    Shot a C9 today first ever C9, was really impressed!
    After first eight rounds slide held open, insert new eight round mag and the slide wouldnt move. Is this due to the safety mag arm, and if it was removed fix the issue?

    Its called LRHO (last Round Hold Open) and its there to tell u that u have ran out of ammo in the mag all u have to do when u insert a new mag is pull back on the slide and release it and it will load another round so u can continue shooting, several different make of guns has it now, and yes u can disable it but personally i dont see what the benifit would be disabling it your still going to have to rack the slide back to load another round into the chamber.

    I see what your saying , but after inserting a fresh mag the slide would not engage at all. After researching other pistol problems similar to what I was experiencing I came to the following conclusion. 1st, strip the firearm clean, oil and reassemble. 2nd test fire.
    Well that must of worked because she runs like a champ.
