Larry from Oklahoma - model 39 jamming
Hello everyone. I'm Larry, a newbie to both handguns and this site. I registered to respond to some other thread I found by googling a problem I was having with my wife's Beretta PX4 sub. But since I'm on here is there anyone with advice on the Model 39 jamming or "stove piping"? My mother in law wants to rely on this weapon from her father's garage. So I took it to range - it jammed. Took it apart and cleaned and oiled it - same result. She's thinking of taking it to a gunsmith but I sort of like to make things work if I can. Any advice or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. It jams about 1/2 or more of the rounds mostly stove piping . It has a stiff spring and we could be shooting it too limp-wristed but the new Beretta .40 doesn't jam. Should I post this question on some other forum ?
