200 blazer aluminum and 50 remington brass so far only 1 failure to eject (on the aluminum)
Thats good. I guess my gun just doesn't like the aluminum. I have never had it jam on any type of brass...

My buddy has had a few problems with FTE & FTF on his c9. After trying 3 different brands of 9mm he still was having some probs. Although smacking the mag did help with FTE, it didn't solve the prob, so...

I never took a c9 apart to polish the ramp but talked him into doing this today (I've only shined the ramp by hand). Very easy. Reassembled nicely. When (if) I can afford to buy another c9, I'll do this right away.

We also cleaned the handgun of any deposits (used CLP). Nice and smooth hand feeding it.

You can go to Harbor Freight tools and get a dremel knock off for about $20 made by a Chicago Tools. I have had mine for about 3 years and it still works fine. Not a lot of money to get the better results.
+1 on the Harbor Freight. They have very decent tools for a great price. Don't let the price fool you I have a 500 piece knock off Dremel set from Harbor Freight that I may use to polish my feed ramp with. I have used the kit quit a bit and it only cost 15 bucks. I have not had any probs with my c-9 yet so I will wait a while before I polish it.

Harbor Freight is kinda like Hi-Point, not a lot of $$$, but the same results. I wouldn't go to Harbor Freight if I was a contractor or something where I was going to be hard on my tools and use them constantly, but for an average guy to use on things like this, they work fine. I kinda look at Hi-Point the same way. I probably wouldn't use it as my main weapon if I were a cop or something where my life depended on it, but for the average shooter, it is a great choice...

"Harbor Freight- The (Chinese) Hardware version of Hi-Point"
I can just see that as their new slogan, lol

Most of their tools have a lifetime warranty. I have broken several of their items before, and they'll exchange it, no questions asked, no receipt needed. I have not broken ANYTHING from their Pittsburgh Tools line.

I polished my feed ramp by hand. Very fine automotive sandpapr and then a polishing compound. Mirror finish, but it took me a bit more than an hour. Stuff cotton in the barrel, paper towel in the mag slot and go. Good cleaning afterward with CLP. It has done wonders for the feeding issues.

Okay i went and tested my 9 out yesterday after having polished the feed ramp. I had a few times that it tried to feed two in at once, but I believe that is still due to the spring on the mag not being quite loose enough. At rapid fire however I had absolutely no mis feeds. One problem I did run into tho, was that the action didn't lock back twice after the last round in the mag. Anyone know what would cause this?

Not sure about the cause, but I had the same problem right before xmas with mine and I sent it in for a check-up. The replaced the last-round-lock-open, the firing pin and springs, the ejector springs and buffed feed ramp. They didn't polish it though. After that, no problems at all. They also test fired and, of course, sent an extra 8-round mag.

I like the way that looks. I need to do this to my .45. Good topic.
