I bought a used C9 with one 8 round mag and two 10 round mags. First time out it functioned flawlessly. Well the second time was a different story. I kept getting FTF one after another. I was using Speer gold dot 124 gr hps, cci blazer 147 grain fmj, and federal 115 grain fmj. It seemed to do it worse with the speers, but it was failing to feed all three. What do I need to do to make it work?

First, double check the feed lips on the magazines. One you have done that, strip down the C9 and give it a detailed cleaning. Pay attention to the feed ramp, firing pin channel, recoil spring, and contact areas on the slide. Use fine grit sandpaper to polish the fee ramp down and finish with a polishing compound to make it mirror smooth.

When cleaning that C9, use a decent amount of gun oil to relube the parts once it is clean. Don't overdo it, but don't be shy with the oil either.

Take it back to the range and try it out. If it's still performing like a jam-o-matic, send it to HP for factory warranty service.

Good luck.

I found the OEM 8 round mag to work flawlessly. The HP 10 round mags FTF like a cooked noodle into the eye of a needle. Danged neart every frickin' time.

I'm about ready to swap 2 10 rd mags for some 8 rd mags. Unless I can figure out how to get these 10 rd mags to work better than a paper weight. :mad:

If your FTF is nose up then you need to bend the ears of the mag in a hair. If they are jambing and not getting into the cylinder then you need to spread the ears apart a hair. If it is a nose down FTF then I am not sure what to do, but a call to Tech support will get you on your way to an FTF free future. Both my 8 and 10 round mags were causing problems but with a little adjustment, not they both feed perfect. :D
