Found a Way to avoid FTF's when inserting Mag with slide closed.
So, I had an idea about this problem and took the pistol to the range to test my theory. My theory is that if I put a round in the chamber before loading the magazine, released the slide, and THEN load the Magazine, would bullet jam on the ramp on the next round (top round in the magazine)???
And, my idea worked wonderfully! I tried the following hollow points:
Federal 9mm Hydrashok +P,
Georgia Arms 147gr reloads,
GoldDot 124gr +P Short Barrel,
USAammo 115gr new (speer brass),
And, I tried both the 6 round and 7 round magazines.
I had a box of Winchester Ranger +P+, but decided against it since that is what started the whole thing.
I also added a Hogue HandAll Junior and it really reduces the irritation I was getting from the aggressive checkering.
My confidence is higher....need more testing of ammo to get back to being as confident as my Bersa 380CC.
