Failure to eject

Post by inletguy » Thu Jan 10, 2019 8:49 pm

Got my Tp9 SFX this morning - field stripped, cleaned, lubed. Have been very impressed by reviews and was looking forward to shooting it.

Shot fine, until, after about 30 rounds-failure to eject...occurred again in about 20 rounds....then ran fine for the rest of 100 rounds. Anyone had this problem....any advice, suggestions appreciated. After shooting, I stripped, cleaned, lubed again.

thanks from a new member.

One other thing....how do I tell which size the backstraps...all I can see on the one NOT on the gun is a 1 inside the backstrap...and don't you need a 1/8 punch to change the backstraps.

many thanks

You need some ammo with a +P rating in the stock SFX for breaking in the spring . Easiest way to get it is to go to Walmart and pick up a couple hundred rounds of Winchester 124gr NATO ammo. Sells for about $27/150. I bet your ejection problems go away. Contact Century Arms and request their reduced power RSA for lighter loads. They'll send you one free.

Ran another 100 rounds thru it today...and no problems at all...have a case of Speer Lawman 124 grain ordered.

I ran 200rds of 124gr NATO through first and didn't have any failures. The 300rds of 115gr random ammo afterwards worked great. Keep in mind that the higher power of NATO or +P is equally as important to break in rather than just 124gr ammo. Some have also had luck breaking in the spring a bit by leaving the slide locked back for a few days. Enjoy!

Good stuff. It's designed to perform similar to the Speer Gold Dot carry ammo, which is why I stock up on it. Keep us posted how your SFx progresses.
