Yep...you suck racer....that target shows you're so bad I think you should give away all your builds....I take a few!!!
Thanks. Got a lot of failures to feed. But, I had that with my 2nd build and was able to fix it. Will look into this one today and see if I can sort it out. Once I've got at least 500 flawless rounds through it (without a single failure), then I'll consider it for EDC.Yep...you suck racer....that target shows you're so bad I think you should give away all your builds....I take a few!!!
Seriously, nice shooting and glad you got the bugs out of the build.
Any chance the problem is worsened with only 1 or 2 in the magazine, and therefore lighter spring tension in the mag?After dressing the breech face and extractor last night, I cycled 3 full mags of snap caps without any issue.
OK... Range Test #2!
I wanted to get right back to the range - anxious to see if the work I did resolved the FTF issue.
Right off the bat... It was running like a top! Woohoo! The gun fired 110 flawless rounds! My pushing left demon made a re-appearance (though not as bad as usual).
I'm not posting targets here. It will only distract from the discussion.
And, then... the FTF gremlin reappeared during my last 20 shots of FMJ ammo. The round was angled up towards the chamber, but stuck - with the slide about a 1/4 - 3/8ths of an inch out of battery.
This time around, I was NOT able to get the slide (and round) to go into battery with a smack on the back of the slide. I had to drop the mag and then rack the slide to drop that round through the magwell.
With that same mag, when I put the jammed round back at the top of the mag and inserted it into the pistol, I could not get the first round to chamber several times after clearing the malfunction. I switched mags, and the first round chambered. But a subsequent round jammed the same way during shooting.
Then, I was out of FMJ ammo. And, my hour of range time was coming to an end. 5 minutes left!
I had brought half a box of Winchester SXT 147-gr hollowpoints just in case I decided I wanted to test them at the end. And, so I did. 25 rounds fired, including some "COM" rapid fire (instinctive shooting) - no malfunctions.
So, I'm not completely sure if it's an AMMO issue.... a MAG issue... or I need to dress the breech and extractor a little more. I'm assuming it's the latter and will proceed accordingly and test again.
So, it was MUCH better. But, I was disappointed with the FTFs after the first 110 rounds fired flawlessly. For a while there I was think, "YOU DA MAN!" And, then.... "D'OH!"
Back to the bench!
Ordinary ammo... CCI Blazer and Winchester White Box.Is the ammo the typical stuff you run or some off the shelf stuff you found online? If it happened with two different mags then, I think you can rule those out.

Good thought, but no. It happened even with a full mag.Any chance the problem is worsened with only 1 or 2 in the magazine, and therefore lighter spring tension in the mag?
Just talking out loud...
