    One more thing...

    I know this sounds dumb, but make sure the mag follower and spring are installed properly.

    Good on you! Expose's are the tool of the consumer. I remember the old joke about you knew it was going to be a bad day when Dan Rather and 60 Minutes was in your waiting room. Before they sold out.

    Not a bad idea --- but already been checked too.

    Here's some pictures to better explain the scratching I'm talking about. You can see where the mag lines are on the brass but the scratch patches don't occur until the bullet gets stuck trying to go into the chamber.

    Get a 9mm bore brush or mop, a little rouge or polish and put it in your drill chuck, and run it through the chamber.

    It appears there may be a lack of smoothness. (No word in Webster’s) transition between the feed ramp and chamber.
    I’d look in that area.

    How far around the case do the scratches go? Can we see all of the scratched area?

    From what I can see, it's probably either the feed ramp or the chamber edge, or both.

    I suppose you've tried to chamber rounds by hand (both slowly and slide released). What happens?

    FWIW (again, in my experience), when a semi-auto is working properly, you can release the slide and a round will chamber smooth as butter.

    I'd love to have about 30 minutes with it... ;)

    Been a few weeks since I had it, but yeah, the problem occurs when going by hand too. Now, if I recall correctly, when I took the barrel out entirely and did a "plunk test" of just plunking the round straight in it worked fine. But in normal operation it'll stick with the scratching as shown. It's pretty much the patches shown rather than wrapping the case but I don't recall if those were on the top or bottom of the case.

    And don't tempt me with a good time or I might bring it down that way!

    Lol, no promises on how I'll feel at any given time, but let us know when you get it back.

    With a few choice pics (and OSA members), we can probably solve the problem online. Or at least locate it. ;)

    I think I'd be a little pissed at the guy I got it from? That being said those are some bizarre pics. Any evidence of a squibb round (I know you don't have it)? Odd.
