New C9: Slide Won't Slide with Magazine Inserted - FIXED Hello everyone, I purchased a Hi-Point C9, my second auto. My other auto is an old Beretta 950 BS .25 ACP. The only experience I have with autos is the Beretta, everything else I have is a revolver. I took the new gun out to the range and fired just under 200 rounds through it. I was using Federal 9mm Luger 115 gr FMJ RN ammo. At first I was getting one or two misfeeds per eight-round magazine. After about five magazines, it was down to about one misfeed per magazine. By the end of the day, there was one misfeed per every two magazines. Among my group was a guy that is a professional firearms instructor. He had the same problems firing it, so I think it's a gun problem and not a shooter problem. (When I have gun problems, my first assumption is that it's a shooter problem.) That many misfeeds is completely unacceptable. I've read about magazine problems here on the forums and plan to see if I can fix the misfeed problem. So I get home from the range and disassemble the the gun for cleaning. Requiring a pin punch for disassembly seems a little goofy, but I can live with it. With the money I saved by buying the C9, I can buy a truckload of pin punches. I cleaned the gun thoroughly and reassembled it. I pulled the slide back a few times and everything seems to work fine. I put an empty magazine in it, pulled the slide back and the slide locked in the open position. I couldn't get the slide to return until I dropped the magazine. Then it worked fine again. I inserted the magazine again and it locked up until I dropped the magazine. I disassembled and reassembled the gun several times to make sure I did it correctly. Am I doing something wrong here? I found a schematic on this page: https://www.gunpartscorp.com/Manufacturers/Hi-Point-33293/ModelC9-43171.htm My gun does not have a firing pin spring cup (#7). The slide retainer (#8) sits directly against the firing pin spring (#6). My gun also has two firing pin springs, a long narrow spring and a shorter larger diameter spring that fits over the narrow spring. My firing pin (5) looks like firing pin style 1 in the parts list. Can anyone offer any suggestions? I tried to include as much detail as I could think of. Thanks.
