My first pistol was a used 92fs inox in very good shape. I love it. I don't know how old it was when I got it, but i've had it well over 10 years. On my last two range outings, I've experienced the oddest FTF pattern i've ever seen. It FTF on the 4th round every time. I thought maybe its the ammo, and tried three different brands, with 115gr and 124gr. I used two different magazines. I even stripped and cleaned between outings. I fire three rounds and FTF on the fourth. Clear the jam, 3 and FTF on the fourth. Ive even tried using the rounds that FTF and put them in the first three with no issues, until the fourth round. Something mechanical must be going wrong. Ive looked around and seen a few possible issues to try and solve this short of going to a gunsmith. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks, Jason
I have a Ruger 22 Mark III that I have been having problems with. I had other issues that I resolved by replacing the hammer bushing, loaded chamber indicator, and extractor with parts from Volquartsen. The issue I have is failure to feed a round. This never happens on the first round. It probably happens 2 or 3 or 4 times per magazine. Racking the slide chambers the round. I am using CCI Mini Mag plated cartridges so I don't think ammo is the issue (I have also tried Federal LRN). I have also rounded the rear corner lips on some of the magazines to see if that would help but it is still getting FTF's. Any ideas what could be causing this?
I was at an outdoor range, yesterday with my 2A mentor. I loaded up my P226 (it's been a while since I've shot it) with some AE 147gr flat heads. "Goin' Hot..," and then.... "Click...." nothing..... I wait to ensure it wasn't a hang fire, then cleared the weapon and ejected the round. Sure enough there was a light depression in the primer. I tried again, and "click...." nothing... My mentor loaned me some standard AE 115Gr round nose. I loaded up two of those. And, lo and behold, they fire without issue! Then I tried some of my Hornady "Critical Duty" rounds. First round.... BANG! No problem. 2nd round..... ."click......" Ruh-Roh..... As before, a light depression in the primer. One more time with Hornady and..... "click....." nothing! I try the flat heads in my Shield, and "BANG....BANG...BANG..." all fires, no issues. So, I'm thinking, maybe a "sticky firing pin" in the P226? Perhaps a more detailed cleaning is in order? Or is this something that may require a bit of smithing? FTR, my P226 is the only one of my inventory that I cleaned initially with "Froglube." My mentor has soured quite a bit on FrogLube, now. The other of my inventory has been cleaned with Hoppes 9 and Hoppes std. oil, along with gun grease for the rails. Anyway, all help truly appreciated, since I have to use this gun later this month for my MAG-40 class. If I'm going to need smithing, I need to know ASAP. I also need to find a good gunsmith that does P226's in the Gainesville FL area. Thanks much all.
