:dunno: Prolly closing in on 500 through mine. No major problems with the gun itself. Mag glitches before I ever shot a round out of it but with the info here and studying the way the action works that was mostly fixed before I started shooting it with a final adjustment here and there. Now it works pretty good. Can rapid fire eight all the time without problems. I put a hundred or so WWB brass through it first to break it in and now I shoot Blazer aluminum almost exclusively (mixed with the occasional box of bulk WWB) and I don't use it for HD, PD or anything other than a fun gun. I just buy what ever is on sale (or cheapest) when I go in to be honest. it all works so far. But I don't really worry about a occasional FTF or FTE very much either. As I said I don't have it for a defensive weapon.

Let me back up first thing i did was ask these guys. They pointed me in the right direction, to mom, takedown, mag mods, and ramp polishing. Actually started reading other posts, other post, and other post. Now I'm HPT junky. :scared: :wow: So be careful. Got about 300rds through it after fix, with no hiccups. :doublegun2:

Probably 6-700 rounds now. Have never had FTE though I have had 6 or 7 total FTFeed due to those god awful mags. I also just make a habit of loading 7 rounds in the 8 round mag and then NEVER have the problem.

If yours is a new C9, load mags full and just let them sit a week (not in the gun). This helps break-in the mag spring and adds to better feeding.

Sold my C-9 about 3 weeks ago but had 1,330 rounds through it (bit of a stickler for keeping good records). Only had a few FTF up to around 300 rounds. After adjusting feed lips and learning how to properly hold the gun I never had another problem.

about 550 through it in less than a year, had a few FTL/FTE, traced to operator error and not firearm failure. No complaints with my C-9mm. Now, the CF380, the only problem I've had with it is using Sellier and Belloit ammo...it just doesn't like it...I will say it's flawless when using decent ammo, and both the 9mm and C380 have no problems with WWB. Love my C-9mm, would have no problem having it between trouble and myself...I trust it explicitly.

2000+ rounds of wwb. I lost count after 2000. Only a few problems within the first 200 (due to mags). Runs like a champ even after all those brass she ate. Gotta love my c9!

Ive got over 2300 through my c9 in just a month and a half! New firing pin spring assembly is on the way, because of many fail to fires in the last 150 rounds
