    Angry Same issues here

    Bought my wife a PF-9 2 days ago for home defense. Took her to the range and bought some ammo.

    It jammed on EVERY SINGLE SHOT.

    First, the casing jammed prior to ejection - getting stuck in the port.

    Eventually, the ejector got blown away, and the spent casings just sat in the chamber - every time. Took it back to the store, and they said to have KT send me a new ejector (I
    did not strip the gun before shooting)

    Now it is going back to KT.

    This is my first, and last KT.

    Had problems with my chamber being tight when the gun was new, but a fluff and buff/clean and lube (including polishing the chamber walls and feed ramp) before I ever fired it seems to have solved any potential problems I could have had. Mine has been flawless since the first shot.

    I get kinda tired of repeating this, but here we go again:

    When the just-fired cartridge is not extracted and ejected, it frequently is a matter of technique, not of hardware.
    When a relatively small pistol is held loosely, or with unlocked arms, much of the recoil force the gun needs to extract and eject is lost as the gun moves around in the shooter's hands.
    Diagnostic of this is that the fired case slides right back into the pistol's chamber, unejected.

    If the gun is held tightly, a fired case will come all of the way out of the chamber, even if the gun's extractor is broken or missing.
    In a broken/missing-extractor situation, as long as the pistol's ejector is present, the fired case will be ejected.

    Some Kel-Tec pistols have little, separate, dropped-into-a-hole ejectors which fall out unnoticed, and get lost, when the pistol is disassembled. Perhaps your PF9 is one of these, and its ejector had been lost during disassembly, maybe even at the gunshop before you bought it.

    I had my PF9 for a year and had over 1000 rounds through it. Some ammo will give me FTEs and once I eliminated those ammo the gun's been 100%. I'm a member on KTOG and as of lately there's been a lot of posts about problems with FTEs and slide/barrel peenings. That tells me that KT were slacking on QC because they ramped up the production to meet the demand. I bought my PF9 intended for CC but used it more for range shooting so I sold it and got a Sigma 9mm for shooting. Anyway my hand's getting beat up from this hot little cannon and the Sigma's a pleasure to shoot.

    Nevertheless the PF9 when made right is hard to beat for CC.

    I still have my same PF-9. Since it has come back from KT the second time it has not had one single problem. It will shoot and eject any ammo that you put in to it. The thing is still smooth as silk, with exception to the recoil. I now can not think of anything bad to say about it other than 'why did KT not fix it the first time?' With a little TLC it is now a smooth and reliable gun. If they would take a little more time in QC it would go a long way for customer relations.

    The 1st firing of 150+ rounds were w/o problem. The next had persistent fte's and a very short secession. I did a through cleaning and oiling and on another day, Same continued problem. 40 out of 100 rounds, 3 different brands of ammo including Winchester Whitebox and federal, were fte. I used a caliper to mic the spent brass and found about .002 to .003 in. runout, also present and caused by the chamber. I suspect the extractor arm allows slight rotation and the HOT out of round brass drags and causes a jam in the out of round chamber and/or the arm slips off leaving the casing jammed between the breach and port. The cause for the out of round chamber MAY be inadequate Metallurgical heat treating of the barrel, to allow warpage after the 1st real heating and cooling cycle. This may be worsened by the asymmetrical breach with ramp.

    I guess I will try to talk with a Kel Tec tech rep to get an RMA for repair with a new Proper Barrel.
