Won't Eject Live Round P11
Brand new a couple days ago. Haven't fired it yet. I live in a crowded suburb so cant just open the back door.
Anyways I f&b'd it. And loaded the mag with Monarch 9mm 115gr FMJ. Inserted the Mag, and racked the slide. Released the mag, knowing there is a live round in the chamber, and tried to eject the live round by pulling back the slide. Another forum says to do this to basically train your gun and let it find its groove. You are supposed to repeat this, safely to just get the oil moving the innard's, if you will.
Well the slide was stuck. Really stuck. Read a few things online and it says if you can see the cartridge at all to use a dowel rod or a screw driver or whatever and tap it out. But I couldn't see the cartridge. The slide moved less then an 1/8 inch. So I pointed the gun at a mirror and checked to make sure the round actually did sit in the right spot and it looked fine. Bad cartridge? Nope. I am not sure really what happened.
I finally decided to just "ball up" and rip the slide back and forth as hard as possible. And this did eventually work and the round came out the bottom, as I expected. It didn't work until seriously the third or fourth time and each time I felt like I was going to break the gun. I am not a small guy, and there is no way my wife could have done this.
I am wondering if this is because of some obvious thing I did wrong?? The ammo came from Academy sports, and it is the brass casing(cause now they have steel for 9.99). My Glock, once again, has never FTF this stuff with a little over more than 3,000 rounds. Which I would expect from a Glock. But are these P11's that finicky? Be honest, If there was something I did stupidly wrong let me know.
