JHP problem

  1. My new JHP has a little problem. When I try to rack the slide on the first round some times it hard to move the slide. Like its hitting something. It fires fine after that. No jams or anything the rest of the mag. Any ideas what is causing that?

    How new is the magazine? There may be too many rounds in the magazine. Download it by one round and see if it continues

  3. Thanks! Its the mag that came with the gun. Got it about a month ago

    It probably the cause. Leave it loaded for a month and let the spring "set" a bit. I'm not a big fan of the HP mags. So, I picked up a thingmeister magazine release. MUUUCH better. I lost a round BUT the magazines eject positively and I don't have to worry about feeding issues.

    New Hi Point mags are stiff. Even after multiple loadings at the range, my JHP mag needs a heavy thumb to load.
