    Awhile back I bought a used c9 with some deep gashes in the slide and a broken rear sight.
    I've done the mag lip adjustments and feed ramp feels smooth,yet the or 7 round will stove pipe almost always with out fail.
    So now I'm ready to send it back for repair. I will be using an FFL, so shiping is not an issue.
    My question is what besides description of problem, the gun(duh!) and mags do I need to send in?

    Call them, tell them it's coming. Should be all you need.

    BTW, if you only wanted the sight, or most any other part like springs or firing pins, you could call and they'd just send it to you for free.:)

    Be sure to send ALL your magazines. They will check them ALL out and replace them if needed. No sense in sending your gun back with problems & when it returns putting an old broken magazine back in it, and then find something is still wrong with the gun? I sent a 995 back one time with feed issues. I sent 8 or 9 magazines with it, they replaced them all. I had NO issues after that!

    Returning because gun simply refuses to fire a full mag. If I load 8 rounds, then the 6-7 round will stove pipe. If I load 5 rounds then it's the 5 round.
    The mag I bought from Hi Point works somewhat better, but still rarely will fire all rounds reliably.
    I have replaced the broken rear sight with the ghost ring that came with my .45, but I don't realy care for it.
    The cuts on the slide don't bother me because I intend to paint it later ( maybe a skull sticker?)

    If this is your 1st gun return to MoM, you will be impressed! It will look & shoot like new when you get it back.

    That's what I've heard about them. Had good experience with ordering holsters and mags, expecting the same again.

    Apologies for not updating this sooner. I decided to clean the gun up a little before returning and noticed a slash/ grove on the front of the feed ramp that I hadn't noticed before. Was barely visible, and couldn't even feel it.
    So I smoothed it out with an old Emory board, actually more of a polishing type, but you get the point.
    This made me decide to try to fix it one more time. Remeasured magazine lips, done a little more tweaking (I had them bent out a little too much), and now the newer mag is 100% reliable! The older mag still wants to give some trouble, but this gives me an excuse to buy a few more mags anyway.
    Thanks to all who replied for your input.
