recently my p229 9mm has been failing to extract the empty round...causing a jam. It was winchester white box 115 gr walmart. Ive shot about 1500 rounds of mostly white box 115 winchester before this started happening?? now that was about three years ago so the ammo could be different now idk, and the guns been cleaned every time before shooting, idk why this is happening now but can anybody please help please??
Calmly and quietly swap it out for a .40 S&W, that should fix a lot of issues.
In all seriousness though... you clean your gun before shooting? Rather than after? Or, before and after?
I suppose that's somewhat irrelevant, as long as it is clean in the end... just way easier to clean after shooting before the carbon has really set.
In my Walther PPKs, sometimes I get stove pipes if, when I loaded the magazine, I didn't ensure each round was firmly seated against the back of the magazine while loading into the magazine. Not sure why that caused stove pipes rather than just jams... but ensure that isn't an issue.
