I've shot 50 round of CCI Blazers, and about 60 rounds of manarchs through the new gun. Both are 115gr. The Blazers worked better then the monarchs, but I still experienced Failure to feeds, stove pipes, and the slide wouldn't stay to the rear after the last shot.

I took the pistol to a gunsmith at the shop where I purchased it. He lubed the rails with gun grease and gave me some premium 124gr ammo. The 124gr ammo worked great. I tried some more of the Monarchs and had the same problem.

I carried a 92F in the Military for 20 years, so I know I'm not limp wristed. Do I need to just keep shooting to loosen it up or send it in?
Thanks,
Rob

Sounds like you just need to shoot it with hotter loads for a few hundred rounds to get things broken in, Rob. Good luck and let us know how it runs after you've run a bunch of ammo through it. :D

Thanks for the encouragement.

I absolutely love this pistol as far as accuracy and how it fits my hand so well. I'm going to try some other rounds tommorrow morning and see how it goes. I'll try not to panic until I hit the 600 round mark. The Guide rod spring is extremely tight. I'm pretty sure thats the issue.

Thanks, Rob

I bought some cheap Winchester 9mm luger 115gr ammo and it worked like a charm. I used up the rest of the Monarchs every other magazine. It only stove piped about every fourth round, so the gun is working out the kinks.

Thanks,
Rob
