Just got a chance to run some rounds through my new PF9. Very pleased! I was hoping it would impress me enough to become my new EDC. It cycled everything I threw at it today. Even 125gr LRN reloads. I was a little apprehensive because of all the negative feedback on other forums, but it was a sweeeeeet surprise. Now to work up a load that it really likes.
BTW, I'm obviously new to this forum. I look forward to absorbing all the knowledge I can.
Had 2 PF9's. The blued one ran 100%, but the bluing started wearing off very quickly. I sold it and bought a Parkerized model. I never could get that one to run reliably after about 5 mags. Seemed like the extractor spring was losing it's tension as it warmed up. I replaced the spring and still had the same problem. First 4 - 5 mags, perfect. After that the FTE's would get more common with each mag fired. I sold it (with full disclosure) and bought a M&P9C. It is an awesome gun to carry for a few hours, but I found it too heavy to lug around all day. I added a Shield 9, and it is as perfect a carry gun as you can get. it reminds me of the PF9, because you almost forget you carrying it. I'll probably buy another PF9, someday (preferably in HC).
I recently picked one of these little guns up, and absolutely love it. Only about 50 rounds in, but no type of failure to this point. The gun is comfortable, sturdy, and I'm confident with it, and that's most of what matters!
Welcome to the site. I love my PF-9, reliable and well made, but had to get the magazine extensions for a good grip. Never had any ftf or fte after about 200 rounds through it. My carry ammo is the Federal Personal Defense 9mm 115gr JHP.
I too love my PF-9.
I've had it for almost 3 years and have fired +500 rounds without a hiccup.
I use either a Rem. 115gr JHP or Win. 147gr JHP with a spare mag of NATO spec 124gr JSP.
I carry it in a leather belt slide holster OWB at 3:00.
My EDC is a Glock 23 but sometimes when I wear shorts and a t-shirt my G23 is a little too big so I break out the PF-9.
