What I have is the model PX9109L. Mags used were 2 Wilson 8 rounders, 2 CMc power mags 8 rounders & the factory mags. Modifications done are: bushing replaced with an Ed Brown drop-in, the two-piece guide rod replaced with a standard guide rod and GI plug and lastly the stock recoil spring replaced with a Wolff 18.5 lbs kit. Ammo used were 150 rounds of UMC FMJs 230 grns (only ones available at Bass Pro).
I am going to make this short & sweet. The pistol has good accuracy, shoots to POA with groupings between 1 to 2 inches at 10 yards. It fed flawlessly except for about 7 out of the 150 rounds, the last spent casing failed to eject and it happened mostly on the Wilson mags. The pistol was thoroughly cleaned and relubed before this and I relubed it every 50 rounds. But overall, the session was good. Through this thread, I am hoping to get feedbacks on what necessary steps I need to do to resolve the stovepipes. I know that 150 rounds might not be enough to break-in on a production pistol but in closing I have no regrets on this particular purchase of mine.

I have actually thought of limpwristing as one of the possible culprit but the ftf only happens on the last spent casing. But I will certainly take note of that on my next session. Thanks, Wolfgang.

The breech face upon inspection is rough, something to consider as another culprit for the malfunction. Thanks lockandload. Extractor? I'll probably give it about 300 rounds more then we'll see.
