Welcome from Arizona.
Yes, that's aggravating when the pistol will not chamber the round.Got a 9mm 229 Extreme in July and it has been getting hung up on the feed ramp with pretty much all types of ammo. That's what brought me here, I found a thread about a guy with exact same promo deal P229EXTM and exact same problem. 9miller was his name but idk how to tag people yet. Bullets would get stuck at least once every range trip, usually shooting blazer 115gr. I have to tap the slide forward then it will chamber. It was really bad when I shot TULA out of it, multiple times per magazine. I'm going to give her 2 more range trips and see what happens. Well over 1,000 rounds through her already. Thanks for having me
Thanks everybody. I will try some better 124gr next time I shoot and see what happens. FJGIIE It does have the long extractor but it seems to move just fine. I've noticed the recoil spring does seem a little weak.Yes, that's aggravating when the pistol will not chamber the round.
A couple of things can cause this. Does this P229 have the long extractor? The extractor springs can be too stiff and give trouble loading because it causes the round to not go straight in, but cocked some.
A new recoil spring can help but I know something better. Get your hands on a P228 recoil spring and cut one coil off the big end. Also check on your recoil spring and make sure the small end of the spring is installed first.
The 9mm recoil spring for the 229 is the weakest recoil spring made. Let the recoil spring bumb the slide shut for you.
